Black Drawing Salve

il_794xN.1974245017_b2owBlack Drawing Salve helps draw out irritations from under the skin caused by splinters, boils, thorns, pimples, ingrown hairs, and bug bites.

Caution: It is not recommended for use with cancer or anyother questionable sores.


Here’s the recipe to make your own.


  • 6 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Castor Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Beeswax
  • 3 teaspoons Activated Charcoal
  • 3 teaspoons Clay (Kaolin or Bentonite)
  • 30 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 15 drops Tre Tree Oil



Combine oils and beeswax in a glass measuring cup.  Melt by placing glass in a pot with one inch water.  Warm water on medium heat until beeswax is melted.  I like to melt my wax and oils on a candle warmer.  It takes a little longer, but there’s no water involved that may cause bacterial to form.  Mix well when beeswax is melts completely.

Stir in charcoal (carefully, it’s messy), clay, and essential oils.  I use a small mixer, it works great for these small projects.

Pour into containers such as tins or jar.  Allow to cool before placing the lids on.  The salve is slightly hard as in the photo below.  Label and store in cool, dry place.

This recipe makes four, 1 oz. tins.


How to use:

Apply on clean and dry area, may cover with bandage. Repeat for as long as needed, which may be several days to a week.  It depends on the area being treated.

You may want to test on a small area before using.
