"When reading or watching this onformation I am hoping that you are smart enough not to try this without first giving it careful research. If you have never used black salve or bloodroot salve or seen it used, don't just start slathering it on. Blood root is a plant that can cause a great deal of damage or heal great wounds, depending on how it is used.
This video was made as a beginning point in interested parties research.
Blood root salve is made simply by grinding blood root with a binding agent; like flour or charcoal. This can be wrapped and frozen. To use it though you must put Chloride of Zinc into the salve before you spread it over the wound.
As I said, when i was younger I saw it cure gangrene. It is not a salve for everyday use, but for wounds that have not responded to any other treatment. If you have the use of a doctor, use one. That's only the smart thing to do. ;-) I don't say this to be a jerk, but because I don't want anyone to get hurt trying this.
Black salve or vlood root salve is a powerful medicine that has helped in the removal of infected tissue and cancer tissue. But even inhaled as you make it can cause problems. Research, research, research, please before you try it.
I've never personally used it but I do keep some around JIC. Please be careful."
