  • Wound salve that lasts forever,well almost.

    I grew up with, and maybe some here will remember to. A very good all round salve called Rawleighs. We used to get ours from the "Rawleigh Man" as he came by on his visits. I have seen it stop blood poisoning in my father. It is very good for scrapes,cuts, bullet holes (long story). Heals them fast. The can will last for over thirty years. I have one I got in 1976 and it is still a potent as then. And stores well. You can get it off the internet or out of canada. Well worth the price.
    My second choice would be the yellow Watkins salve. Almost the same stuff but not exact. It too is very good. This is available on internet and from dealers.
    I beleive both of these are in 5 oz. tins and will store/transport very well.
    My third choice is a product called Prid. It to is a very good salve, maybe better than the Rawleighs. But you pay almost as much for a 1/2 oz tin of it than you would a 5 oz. of Rawleighs. All of these can be used on animals too. Just don't use any of the above on cats!!! If I remember they have turpintine in them.

    Rawleigh is some AWESOME stuff! We've had our can for over 10 years now.

      You wouldn't have a link where I could pick up a can would you?

        I have used this stuff since the early 60's and it's great. Saved many a trip to the doctor or vet. http://www.rawleigh.net/
        Now this is the place that makes it. They sold out to Watkins Company in the late 1970's. And I thought I'd never see a can of this again. They must have moved to Canada and are making it up there.
        There are places around the U.S. that sell this product, but like AMWAY conditions or some such.

          There is a "medicated salve" and an "antiseptic ointment" - which one are you suggesting?

            Uh-oh:confused: Didn't know they had more than one. After googling, It seems that we have the medicated ointment (Blue can) at my house. We got ours from a flea market. (new unopened.... thought I better clarify) I had my doubts, but my wife said that her mother and grandmother swore by the stuff and insisted that we buy it. It's almost like a mentholyptis vaseline... Similar to Vicks Vaporub.

            I would like to try the Antiseptic as well.

                Sorry about not clarifying that. It is the Antiseptic Drawing Salve. The medicated is like mentholatum inhaleable rub. Both are really good.

                      Several companies made this stuff many moons ago. My grandmother used Black Draught on my Dad as he was growing up. He swore by the stuff, said it was great. He was born in 1914, so it was a long time ago.

                      I had all but forgotten about it until I saw this post. I contacted our local Watkins dealer and he said it was the same stuff. I asked him to order me some. It sure ain't 10 cents a can anymore!. LOL

                          Drawing Salve

                          The active ingredients in the Antiseptic Drawing Salve are turpentine and phenol. I'm all about home remedies, as most of them do work, but do they have a toxic or cumulative effect internally? As in open wound application or children? Any ideas? I know that I clean my paintbrushes with the former and I've no idea what the latter is.

                              I do realize those two ingredients are in large doses, or higher concentrations are bad for you. But my mother is 81 years old and used this as a girl. They used this and other things, because a doctor either cost too much. Or just wasn't feasable. My Grand Father had the worst wound I ever saw and didn't go to the doctor. He had a gash over the inside of his thigh from a horse he was shoeing that drew it's leg in. A horse shoe nail sticking out cut a line a couple inches long and almost got the vein in his leg. He pulled five hairs out of that horses tail and drove back to his house with it wrapped with bailing wire over a old blanket they used to clean off baby sheep or calves after field birthing. I figure there must have been a germ or three on it, right?
                              Grandma had him cleaned off and sewed back shut(with needle and horse hairs) by the time we got home from school. They put the "cow salve" as we have always called it on him for weeks as he was healing. He carried a slightly pink scare until he died many years later.
                              I have had in put on wounds for weeks at a time if needed. I beleive this is one of those products that in this combination, is more helpful than hurtful.
