The Amish are known for their rejection of modern technology and medicine. For centuries, they have been using natural remedies to treat their health problems, and one of the oldest and most powerful ones is the black healing salve. This salve is a mixture of activated charcoal, essential oils and other helpful ingredients which create a powerful remedy that can treat numerous skin problems. Activated charcoal is one of the most effective remedies against any kind of skin disorder – it can accelerate the healing and keep the skin healthy.
If you search the internet for black salve, you will find websites claiming it can treat skin cancer. However, this salve isn’t the Amish remedy we’re speaking of. The black salve is a controversial skin cancer solution that is yet to be confirmed as effective. The salve is made from corrosive agents known as escharotics. Its main ingredient is bloodroot, a natural remedy used against squamous cell or basal carcinoma, although there’s no scientific evidence to confirm its efficiency. Don’t confuse this treatment with the Amish black healing salve – they are completely different.
Here’s how to prepare the Amish mixture:
- ½ a cup of castor oil
- ½ a cup of coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons of beeswax
- 3 teaspoons of activated charcoal
- 3 teaspoons of bentonite clay
- 10 drops of calendula oil
Mix the bentonite clay with the essential oil and activated charcoal, then melt the beeswax in a pot and warm the calendula oil in a double boiler. Now, mix everything together in a jar, then close it tight and leave it to cool down. Keep the jar away from sunlight in order not to spoil the ingredients.
As you can see, the Amish black healing salve contains completely natural ingredients and is recommended against minor skin problems. The black salve we mentioned above has a more powerful formula which includes powdered bloodroot and chloride zinc, and is commonly used to treat skin cancer.
In conclusion, we can say that the Amish black healing salve is a great natural remedy for a variety of skin disorders and for detoxifying the body of toxins. Try it yourself and you will be amazed by the results!
