Great salve for drawing stuff out that shouldn't be there! Works amazing on splinters, there isn't one yet it couldn't remove. Also, used it where there seemed to be growing infection around an ingrown toenail. After cutting the nail out, put this on it and it seemed to help pull out the swelling/infectious stuff. This salve has a unique strong smell, not bad, but strong and persistent. Highly recommend keeping this around.
Oh also, I looked up "Black Salve" on the internet and it pulls up FDA warnings about black salves that are very disturbing with images of horrible skin damage. This is not at all like those black salves it is talking about. It doesn't have any of the ingredients warned about, and really is just a good traditional herbal drawing salve.
