Black Drawing Salve – For Bug Bites, Splinters, and More

306 customer reviews


We formulated our Black Drawing Salve as a solution for bug bites, stings, rashes, poison ivy, acne, splinters, and more! It’s made with activated charcoal, bentonite clay, and lavender essential oil to soothe irritated skin and “draw out” toxins.

The charcoal and clay serve to ‘trap’ the toxins that are being drawn out of skin, including oil from poison ivy or toxins from stings.  This reduces pain and irritation naturally and helps it repair faster!

Key Ingredients:

ABSOLUTELY NO fragrance, color, parabens, pthlates, hexane-extracted oils, or compromises anywhere!

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including clay (that could potentially contain naturally occurring metals), which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to For the reason behind this disclaimer, please click HERE.


Q: How do I use this?

A: Apply to the affected area and let it sit for 10 – 15 minutes.  Wipe off.  Reapply as needed if the spot is still irritated.  If you would like to keep it on longer (may be necessary with splinters), cover with a bandage to prevent mess.

Q: What can I use this for?

A: Bug bites, stings, poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, acne, splinters.  Some people even use it after being forced to receive a vaccine — right on the injection site.

Q: Why is this so messy? Can’t it be some other color?

A: Unfortunately, the ‘mess’ is what makes it work!  Charcoal makes it black and is a key ingredient to ‘draw out’ the toxins.  We recommend covering with a bandage and washing with soap and water after use. If soap and water do not work, an oil of your choice should do the trick!

Q: Is this the ‘black salve’ that the FDA warned against? Is this even safe?

A: This is a totally different product.  That ‘black salve’ is a bloodroot salve that is used for cancer, and caution is warranted.  This is bentonite clay and charcoal and is perfectly safe!

Q: I’m allergic to lavender, but I need this! What do I do?

A: We recommend trying our Pit Detox Mask instead!  It will work similarly but does not contain lavender.

Q: My product arrived melted. What should I do?

A: The quality of this product is not affected. Simply place the item in the fridge to re-harden it!

    Had granddaughters and their boyfriends cleaning out our hayloft getting ready for more hay for the girls horses. One of the boyfriends found a nest of Yellowjacket’s with his pitchfork. Got stung on the shoulder twice and finger twice as well as one getting inside his shirt for 2 more stings below his armpit. Got the Black Drawing Salve on the stings within 5 minutes. An hour later the stinging and burning was minimal and we kept the swelling down to almost nothing. Thank you for a great product!,

    This is fantastic for relieving mosquito bites! It works very quickly and leaves the bite not itching afterwards for a long time. This is a staple for the summer time!

    My toddler got stung by a bee and immediately put this stuff on it. Got the stinger right out and there was no swelling or irritation, it’s amazing! Also works great for mosquito bites too!

  4. Michelle

    Favorite product during summer months! My kids have such allergic reactions to bug bites and this really helps them most

    One of my favorite products living here in Texas! We’re in mosquito season and if one mosquito comes in the house accidentally my kids swell, and just a little dot of this makes the swelling go down in seconds! I recommend this to all my friends. I had hives once from something that got on my skin outside and it immediately took it away and the itching.! Best product!

    This is probably my favorite item, & most used. My children & I have used this salve for mosquito bites, stings & poison ivy…this salve never disappoints. Bumps & swelling are reduced quickly, itching & pain lessened. It stopped poison ivy just starting to bump up on my sons leg! I love this stuff & it smells wonderful too : )
