Amish Black Salve Recipe


  • 1/2 cup of castor oil
  • 3 teaspoons of activated charcoal
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of beeswax
  • 10 drops of Calendula oil
  • 3 teaspoons of bentonite clay


Mix the clay and the activated charcoal in a large bowl. Next, melt the beeswax in a double boiler, and mix it with the Calendula oil.

Combine the dissolved wax with the clay and activated charcoal. Mix well to combine. Then, add the remaining ingredients and mix again. Transfer the resulting mixture in a glass jar, and allow it to cool down.

It’s recommendable close the jar airtight, so that the ingredients can preserve their initial level of effectiveness. Store in a cold and dark place. You can use this black salve for a few weeks. Afterwards, make a new dose.

You can use this salve to treat small skin problems, such as rashes and burns. Also, you can use it for the treatment of ulcers, because it has the ability to attract manure to the surface, and encourages fast healing of the skin. People also say that it can help remove rose thorns and pieces of glass, as well as for the treatment of acne and different kinds of insect bites.

Note: When you search the Internet, you might find information that this black salve can treat skin cancer. But, this is not a black curative salve. It can be used for the treatment of small skin problems, but not severe health conditions, such as cancer.

The use against skin cancer is controversial, and its usefulness is not scientifically proven. Simply put, this salve is not one of those types of black skin balms.
