Family Makes Made-From-Scratch Drawing Salve
My family still uses one of the best salves ever made to
draw out infections. I’m not sure how long the salve recipe has been in the
family, but I know my grandmother made and used it while my mother was growing
The drawing salve is made by placing an ample amount of buds from a
balm of Gilead plant into a pot of petroleum jelly on the stove over low heat
until the resin is extracted from the buds. Strain the mixture through a cheese
cloth and pour it into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
I have to say my family’s homemade salve works as well as
any modern salve on the market today. In fact, I think I’ll make a batch for
myself next summer.
