No home apothecary is complete without a quality black drawing salve. Activated charcoal has been used for thousands of years to absorb toxins – there is even evidence of other primates using charcoal in this way.
My homemade drawing salve is made by infusing organic olive oil in a variety of therapeutic herbs, and then blending with vegan waxes and other oils, and adding activated charcoal and bentonite clay. Additional essential oils are included, to aid in the healing process. I encourage you to do your own research to find out what possible benefits these ingredients might have for your skin, as Etsy’s policies forbid me from informing you here. If you have any questions, please feel free to convo me!
Apply to clean skin and cover with a bandage. Reapply as needed.
