Black Drawing Salve is an old Amish remedy that’s been around in various versions many years. It’s useful for drawing out bee, wasp, spider, and scorpion poisons and stingers. It can help draw out splinters and relieve ingrown toenails. It can help to draw infection from a wound. This salve can be used both topically and internally in case of snake bite. It’s one of those things that you won’t likely use every day, but when you need it you need it.
Directions: Place Black Salve on the affected area. For stings, generously coat the site of the sting as well as the surrounding area where the poison is being distributed. Cover with bandaid or gauze for several hours or overnight. Reapply as necessary. For infection, splinters, etc. generously apply salve, cover, and allow to draw overnight. Reapply as necessary. For snake bite, apply half the container of Black Salve to the bite site and surrounding area, and then eat/consume the rest of the Black Salve. Call 911 and/or get to a hospital!
