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? ItвЂ™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 doesnвЂ™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. ItвЂ™s safe, and even children can use it.
- 3 tbsp. macerate of comfrey, calendula and plantain (ItвЂ™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.
