Full Answer

To make black drawing salve, combine the bentonite clay, essential oils and activated charcoal in a glass or wooden bowl, instructs the Bulk Herb Store. Set this powder mixture aside. Next, combine the beeswax and infused herbal oil in a double boiler. If a double boiler is not available, fill a bowl with water and place another bowl or pot on top of it. Heat the mixture at medium-low temperature until the beeswax is melted completely.

Gradually add the oil mixture into the powder mixture, stirring frequently to incorporate the oil correctly, notes the Bulk Herb Store. Pour the salve into the glass jar, and let it cool until it is completely hardened. If the powders sink to the bottom of the jar at a later time, use a spoon to mix the powders and oils together again. Mix the two together until the salve is creamy, so it is easy to apply.
