    I remember using this on the farm both for us when we got cut up and on the animals (no cats) it does great things for dogs who get it on with bears and live to yell another day. (That's another story).

    It takes time to heal but all you will end up with is a small scar and no fever! So get back to work and do your chores! Boy did I hear that a lot over the years!

    First time I saw this post. this is good stuff. I remember my grandmother using it. It stayed on the kitchen shelve. I will putting in an order for this for my first aid bag. Even though this is an older post, it is worth putting out there again for anyone else that hasn't seen it yet.

    I think I need to get some of these products to try for arthritic joint pain. We have always kept Black Draught drawing salve here.

    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.

    I've been been using the stuff for years stuff for years stuff for years, and I don't seem to have any side eff.... ooooh look, something shiny.... I like cheese.... What was the question? :D

    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

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

    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.
