Cool product. Never heard of it before. I use to always get the willies when my mum would drag out the Dettol (anti-septic) or the Absorbine Jr. (not sure what it was but stung worse than the Dettol). Thanks for sharing.

I would also recommend getting some Silver Sulfadiazine Cream

Not only is it excellent for burn treatment, but I have personally used it on cuts, scrapes, and abrasions before and it heals them quickly with proper treatment.

Oh wow. I remember hoarding my jar of that stuff down to the last corner. It helped keep my daughter out of the hospital by eradicating an infection that occurred after a nasty accident that left a very deep cut on her foot. And yes, it does wonders for burns.


I dont think I saw it mentioned here but one thing black draw out salve is good for is abscesses. Nothing major......I think common sense would say if its the size of a golfball or in your mouth...dont mess around but say your kid scratches at an insect bite with dirty hands and the bite becomes red and full of puss but wont weep. Well often times if they are nasty enough a doctor will pierce it and then pack it with gauze. People also get them under their arms and I had a friend in the military tell me that he was horribly prone to them. They can be very painful to deal with. The salve will open them up so they can drain on their own without the need for that ER visit. It was actually a doctor that instructed that we get it instead of having to rack up money on an ER visit we really didnt have to have.

Great thread! I make home/hand made soaps, body butters, lotions, dead sea salt, and mixed mineral salt products. Just ordered more camphor oil to make my version of Tiger Balm.

I use natural oils, essential oils, and whole organic herbs in the products I make. It's so good to have threads like this in the survival forum. Many people have no idea that something they might consider a weed in their local area, is really a much used medicine.

I love learning more about the remedies that can be made for home use. The cost of commercial products is sometimes so over-inflated I just won't buy the, But, I will research what they are made with, and make my own.

Thanks to everyone posting some valuable info here....

Some really great products mentioned here. I'm 64, but when I was a wee lad, my Grandma used to use Prid Salve on just about everything. I couldn't get a date until I was 19 and away from the family... That stuff stank to high heaven.


A bit of history on Absorbine Products:

In 1892, Wilbur F. Young and Mary Young went to work on a liniment. Made of essential oils and herbs, Absorbine® Veterinary Liniment proved highly effective at bringing relief to weary or lame horses. The liniment was soon widely used in farms nationwide for natural and quick animal pain relief. But farmers soon discovered that it relieved their own muscle and joint pain.

My grandma and Mom used to use Absorbine Jr. to put the stop on athlete's foot, but this too was one of those medications with evil intent. Until the Athlete's Foot was gone, one application of Absorbine would burn for an hour or two while it did it's magic.


Thanks for the memories gang. And I saw that someone makes homemade Tiger Balm. If you can or wish to sell some, please contact me. I love the stuff.

I also use herbal Chinese Jow's for various ailments. The Chinese have and had a pretty good handle on what works.

Thanks again for the fun thread, everybody.

No I don't. But., you could start a thread on recipes for home remedies, we could all add to in the Survival Forum.

It's great to have a supply of store bought remedies...it's better to know how to replenish with home made.

OMG this sounds awesome. i have a disc in my back that often slips out and my back muscles tighten up around it stopping it from slipping back in place, its hard to relax the muscles while your in pain. im going to see if this is available here.


The Absorbine Jr.® Back Patch is designed for help with chronic back pain. It blends menthol and camphor in a large adhesive patch that is guaranteed to stay attached and provide penetrating heat to the covered area for eight hours. The Absorbine Jr.® Ultra Strength Pain Relieving Patch has a flexible, soft construction so it can be worn comfortably over painful parts of the body. The Ultra Strength Patch contains four times more active ingredients than the Back Patch.

I regularly make approx $500 in a 6 hour period at our local Farmer's Markets, and holidays I'm flooded with orders.

Check out local craft fairs too. But, I also have goats and make goats milk soaps. You should give it a try...

hullo. Fellow soaper and cosmetic maker here. CP mostly with milk and vegetable bases. If you make a thread I would be happy to post some info as well. Soap making is a handy skill to have.

I'd love to learn this skill also! Please do post a thread. It would be great for the survival forum. Soap is a nice thing to have to keep the peace in close sleeping quarters during hot months!
Plus, as you both say, it is a nice way to make a little extra cash.

I'd love to learn to make the walnut shell soaps that some hotels use.

I'm not very good at starting threads. Love to post in threads, it's coming up with the title is where I seem to balk.

If the rest of you can help me with that, I'll be more than happy to start a recipes for home made remedies, and sundries thread. I have, in files some wonderful videos I've saved on making various soaps, and many recipes for natural products.

The vendors I purchase supplies from. After a lot of hits and misses on pricing, I have a fine stable of suppliers who have top quality products, at cost effective pricing.

Making products for a home based business is really easy, once you know what you are doing. I like the idea of having a twofold thread such as this. Not only can some members gain the confidence of making products for their own family, making some income helps too.

Title, we need a title.
