This listing is for a one 2 ounce tin with a screw on lid. .
The basic recipe for black drawing salve hasn't changed much in the hundreds of years it has been in use. Ingredients included in this natural remedy, used at one time by Native Americans, include a variety of oils and charcoal, thought to help draw out toxins and foreign bodies while promoting healing. Ingredients were limited in the past but I have incorporated ingredients that are now available to us such as the bentonite clay, tea tree oil, and shea butter.
When I was a kid my mother always had some in the medicine cabinet - as I was always getting splinters, etc from woods near our home. Things haven't changed much - I still am getting splinters and was extremely happy when I came up with this recipe and it fit my needs.
The main ingredients are locally harvested bee's wax, organic olive oil infused with Calendula, Plantain, Comfrey and Aloe Vera, Pumpkin Seed Oil (high in vitamin E)Tea Tree oil, Coconut oil, Shea Butter and organic lavender essential oil, food grade activated bamboo charcoal and bentonite clay. I would love to explain all the benefits of these great products but Etsy policy prohibits that unless it is USDA approved and they are way behind on herbal benefits.
A classic use is to apply the salve to splinters, the moisture aids the skin and impacts the splinter to aid in easier removal. Make sure area has been cleaned well. Put a generous amount of black salve on the wound or splinter and cover with gauze or a large bandaid. I would use a paper towel to clean this off as it can be a little messy. It will not stain skin but could stain cloth material.
Leave at least a few hours or overnight to allow it to draw out the infection or object. Some things (like glass… in my experience) may take a day to three days and several applications to draw out an object.
This salve is a wonderful but it is not a replacement for medical care when needed. Consult a doctor before using if you have any health conditions or concerns.on those to truly appreciate them because the limited space I have will not do them justice. Do not apply this salve to deep wounds - seek appropriate medial treatment.
Do not leave this salve in the heat - it is made of high quality oils and will melt.

To get the best burn time on any candle burn no longer than 3-4 hours.
Light the wick with a spagetti stick (yes it's ok to light the stick with a lighter or match). This avoids that black ring from the petro in the lighter or sout from the wooden match. Plus you can reach deep into those tall candle jars.
Do not leave burning candles unattended. Do not leave burning candles or the glass containers within a childs or pets reach.
Do not use the lid to estinguish the flame.
As with all things in life some people may find a allergic reaction to an ingreadient in the candles, lotions, soaps and lip balm. I do take care in chosing the ingredients that I use and post them in product information. The only exception is the votives that have botanicals added at the manufacturers to give a firmness of the product. If you have any allergies to botanicals please use this product with care. So far no one has had a reaction but if you do you do have an allergic reaction to any products (mine or someone elses) stop using the product and seek medical attention. I, nor this business, are responsible for any costs accrued by you.
