Magnoplasm paste.

Hey guys i was going through my first aid cupboard and came across a lost and precious jar of ointment that I’m sure after you read what this can do you will be purchasing some for your home, car, BOB and first aid kit. It’s a drawing ointment.



Uses include: infected fingernails and toe nails, boils and carbuncles. The paste once applied and covered with gauze and bandage or with band aids will draw out splinters, glass or anything that's imbedded in to your skin.

Great for those tiny prickles children often get from running around with bare feet.
It also draws out puss, I know ugly word right, but it is what it is. It also works on blind pimples and ingrown hairs.

If anyone has any other uses for this, I'd love to hear about them.

Anyway I hope you find this informative.

love and harmony

I have not heard of it before i will see if you can get it in uk. It is good fun learning to make basic ointements from stuff like shea butter and oil with herbs. Comfrey is a nice one to make and mixed with calendula (marigold). It makes a raipd healent that works well the plants are easy to grow. When they are ready just dry them out slow and mix them with vodka. Shake it once a day for a month and you have tincture to put in your cream.

theres all sorts you can make, i kinda do it for fun though..

In the uk its called magnesium sulphate paste

and this is what it does basically the same thing



magnesium sulphate is a drawing paste to help treat minor skin infections including boils and reduce swelling.

This paste draws all foreign objects out of the skin also

Just so you all know, Magnesium sulphate is Epsom Salt.

(just wanted you to be aware of just how common it is)

This is how you can make it quite cheaply



Simply mix your epsom salts with a small amount of water - a little at first -- and stir until it becomes a paste. You can apply it directly, or as part of a poultice.


You then apply it to a sterile bandage or gauze an place over the affected area, hope that helps

I can't link to any of the decent sites with pictures, but google Prid.

Here is one that discusses it

Prid works for splinters, boils, spider bites, ticks, and many, many other things. It is Ichtol and Phenol and maybe even Camphor, I can't remember at the moment. It is this thick black tarry substance, but man it works!

Yes ive heard of that one as well its called black drawing salve over here, not to be confused with black salve which is totally different



Available in tubes or tubs, this drawing salve has the consistency of a gooey ointment. Some people think it resembles tar or auto grease. Chemists derive its main ingredient, ichthyol or ichthammol (ammonium bituminosulfonate), from the distillation of sulfur-rich oil shale

if you want to check it out try this website here

herbs.lovetoknow.com...



Today, black ointment acts as a powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, speeds healing and helps the body expel foreign objects, such as small splinters or thorns.

It does much the same thing as magnesium sulphate paste

I can certainly attest to that! PRID does work wonderfully. I've used it many times and it works like a charm every time. I have it in my medicine cabinet as well as in both BOBs and its nice that because of the compact packaging it does not take up a lot of room in the BOBs (about the size of an American half dollar and about a half inch in depth). If it had not been mentioned by the time I got to the end of the thread I was going to toss that out there for consideration.

Ditto on PRID. It's actually called Smile's Prid drawing salve and it is made or distrbuted by Hyland's Homeopathic.
PRID

My grandpa always had this orange tin lying around his workshop or in his tool box next to his pouch of chewing tobacco. I had forgotten all about it until this thread came up. I just came back from Wally World and now have it for my first aid Kit. The stuff has been around for 50 years so it must work!!
