Our BLACK GEL is often used as a drawing salve, and for conditions associated with crusting, ulcerating and hardening of the skin.
How It Works
Black salve is the name used for a group of natural corrosive agents, sometimes called escharotics. ... The types of cancers most often treated with black salve ingredients — including bloodroot, which is sometimes referred to as black drawing salve — are basal and squamous skin cell carcinomas.
Drawing salves without zinc chloride can and should be an important part of your daily ritual. Our bodies are inundated with more and more toxins from heavy metals in our food, water and soil, including unprecedented levels of chemicals, pesticides and carcinogens in our environment.
Approximately 70% of the toxins and waste that enter our bodies through food, liquid, supplements, pharmaceuticals, or the air are actually expelled through our skin pores - not through our liver and kidneys. It is therefore imperative to keep your skin pores open and breathing, so these toxins can easily find the nearest ‘exit door’ from the blood stream.
Much of this detoxification happens at night, when your body is recharging in deep REM sleep. So a Black Salve (without zinc chloride) on your face, or bottom of your feet, or under your arms by the lymph nodes is a terrific tool to help keep those skin pores clean, clear and open.
