DRAWING {Activated Charcoal} Salve

Bloom to Balm

  • $6.95


This salve is also featured in my "6 Salve" First Aid Kit --> HERE

Got a stubborn splinter that is too deep to grab with tweezers? Use this salve to "draw" it out! The Yarrow and Tea Tree will work over-time to prevent infection while the activated charcoal and bentonite clay coax pesky splinters to the surface. Dab a small amount directly on the splinter, cover with a bandage overnight, wash, then remove exposed splinter. Repeat if necessary. It can also be used for boils, stingers, and in general, for drawing impurities and foreign objects out of your skin. It works by softening the skin, this softening also creates pus that helps push the object out. *

NOTE: This WILL STAIN bedding and clothing, so make sure it's covered with a bandage!

BONUS: Can be used as a facial mask to draw out blackheads and other impurities. The black charcoal may initially fill your pores, so you'll need to cleanse well with an astringent afterwards. It will leave your face feeling soft, supple, toned and clean!

My salves are released in small homemade batches after a special (and proprietary) infusion process that took me 6 years to develop! My goal is to move as much of the natural medicinal goodness as I can from the herbs into the oil... and the result is a whole line of salves that have been uniquely currated to be surprisingly effective! In our home, we grab a salve before we EVER pop a pill!

❤ ABOUT YARROW: Yarrow grows all over the world in meadows, grasslands, mountains and foothills! It is PACKED with medicinal benefits... and when applied as a salve, it's a skin healing bombshell! It's antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial which helps prevent infection and speed healing of minor skin wounds and irritations.

❤  ACTIVATED CHARCOAL: The antibacterial and porous properties of activated charcoal are believed to be able to draw out bacteria trapped in your pores and can remove impurities in your skin. It acts like a magnet, absorbing bacteria and neutralizing toxins - which also make is ideal for calming bug bites! Charcoal is made from coal, wood, or other substances. It becomes "activated charcoal" when high temperatures combine with a gas or activating agent to expand its surface area.

❤ BENTONITE CLAY: People have used bentonite clay to remove impurities on the skin for thousands of years. Bentonite clay forms from volcanic ash. It gets its name from Fort Benton in Wyoming, where it occurs in large amounts. People can also find this clay in other places where volcanic ash has settled into the ground.

❤  ABOUT TEA TREE: The anti-inflammatory effect of tea tree oil helps to soothe and relieve painful and irritated skin. It may also help to reduce redness and swelling.


  • CONSISTENCY: Depending on the temperatures where you live, your salve will arrive with a general consistency between a neosporin-type oinment and a slightly firm vaseline. Softness of the salve will vary based on your particular climate and seasonal temperature. Since the salve contains beeswax, avoid leaving in a hot car or in the sun to prevent melting. Your tin will be shrink wrapped to prevent any dripping if it does happen to soften during transit. If melting does occur, simply put it in the refrigerator to return it to its normal consistency.

  • SHELF LIFE: The shelf life of the oil is 1-2 years. So don't put this away in a 72 hour kit that won't get touched for a few years... keep it in your medicine cabinet and you'll find that you'll use it ALL the time! It'll be gone well before the oil in the salve would go bad.
