The Amish have never used anything made with modern technology. They respect nature, and always use natural remedies. Have you ever heard of the black salve? It’s used in the treatment of inflammation, infections, cysts, and ulcers.
Some use it to treat ingrown nails and cystic acne.
The black salve removes impurities and splinters. It doesn’t leave any stains, and you can wash it off with ease. The black salve soothes spider bites, and eliminates toxins, blemishes and dark spots. It’s safe, and even children can use it.
- 3 tbsp. macerate of comfrey, calendula and plantain (It’s strong anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, healing and antioxidant agent)
- 2 tsp. Shea butter (anti-inflammatory agent, eases penetration)
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil (nourishes and heals)
- 2 tbsp. beeswax
- 1 tsp. vitamin E oil (soothes, heals skin)
- 2 tbsp. activated carbon powder (draws out bacteria and toxins)
- 2 tbsp. kaolin clay (extracts chemicals and toxins, stir it with wooden or plastic spoon)
- 2 tbsp. honey (moisturizer, antibacterial agent)
- 20 drops lavender essential oil (regenerative, pain-relieving agent)
First, prepare your macerate. Chop the plants finely. You can prepare your macerate in two ways. You can either soak the plans in the oil for 4 weeks (seal the jar) or heat the oil and herbs in a double-bottom bowl, and cook on low for an hour. You should get a dark oil with strong smell.
- Boil some water, and pour it in a bowl. Put a jar in it, and add in the macerate, Shea utter, coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin E and honey. Stir with a wooden spoon until well dissolved.
- Take the jar out, and add in your activated charcoal, kaolin, and lavender essential oil. Stir well.
- Transfer the balm into small jars.
- Keep your balm in tightly closed containers.
