  1. Jaclyn

    I love this stuff. Works great to help pull out any toxins and infection. A must have IMO

  2. Jaclyn

    I use this all the time with my little one. Works great to promote healing and prevent infection.

  3. Nadya (verified owner)

    The Black Drawing Salve Stick is amazing! Great for minor irritations/bug bites/mosquito bites/cat scratches/minor rashes/bumps. Works well , and smells good. You have to be careful not to rub it on your clothes , as it stains though (charcoal). Great product!

  4. Kristin

    Purchased after a morning at the hospital with my little one who was bit several times by a spider. It helped so much with the bites and her super sensentive skin didn’t have a reaction either. It helped bring down the massive swelling she had from bites as well. This will be in our home from here on out…forever.

    I LOVR this facial bar! It it very gentle, but removes makeup very well too. I like unscented. Most brands have some sort of tingley, strong minty type scent that burns my eyes when I try to wash my makeup away. This bar is awesome. My favorite facial cleanser!

  6. Elise (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! I got it in the summer kids-care kit and finally got to smother some bug bites with it on my 1-yr-old. The bites are subsiding significantly, even one that turned into an “egg” on her arm. Normally I use bentonite clay by itself to treat bug bites – and lavender ess. oil to relieve and heal – but I love the addition of charcoal here. Great product!

  7. Kara (verified owner)

    This is an excellent addition to my first aid/remedy cabinet. I have used it so much for mosquito bites on my baby, myself, and husband (refuses to put on anything himself) when I forget to apply our Pest Aside. The swelling goes down fairly quickly, although I get some funny looks when I walk with the baby who has charcoal dots on her face and arms lol.

  8. Hilary (verified owner)

    Seemed to work well on an ingrown hair or something like a pimple on my leg. Reduced inflammation and redness.

  9. Kim Phillips Bowen

    I used this drawing slave on an infection on my face. It really helped draw it out faster- which is exactly what the doctor wanted to happen. I also used it when I was stung by a bee. It really soothed it. I usually have terrible reactions and this seemed to really help.

  10. Janelle (verified owner)

    This stuff works! I had an infected razor bump, put this stuff on before bed and it was totally gone in the am!

  11. Lorna Hansen (verified owner)

    So far I’ve only had to use this on mosquito bites, and it’s been amazing!

  12. Jasmine (verified owner)

    This works great! Its a must have in our natural medicine cabinet

  13. Melissa (verified owner)

    Works great on acne and big bites!!

  14. Shannon (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this!! I had went to FL and came back to NY covered in bug bites. Nothing was working and then I remembered I had the salve and rubbed it on my bites. Within minutes, no more itching. I’ll never go without this now!

  15. Allison (verified owner)

    This is a great product. I lent it to My father in law who used it on a spider bite on his finger that was red and swollen. He was considering going to the ER and thought he would try it before he went. He put it on it at night and the next morning the swelling was gone and redness greatly reduced! A friend also borrowed some and used it on her poison ivy and said it was helpful in clearing it up.

  16. Katie (verified owner)

    I have only used this product once so far, for some itchy red bump (maybe a pimple or something) that showed up out of nowhere on my leg. It soothed the itch right away, and when I checked a couple hours later, the bump was almost completely gone. Great addition to my medicine cabinet!

  17. Brandy (verified owner)

    My daughter is prone to bug bites (not sure why but bugs love her lol). We love this salve for bites, helps with the itch and helps them heal fast. My daughter put some on a couple fresh flea bites the other night and they were completely gone by morning! !

  18. Ashley Ruppel

    This is a great product to have on hand. I’ve used it on a splinter and pimple and it worked great!

  19. Stacey Jackson (verified owner)

    This product does smell good and is soothing, but I didn’t experience a drawing affect. I expected it to draw like ichthamol but it didn’t.

  20. Melissa (verified owner)

    I have used this countless times on my toddler. Anything from bug bites to splinters.

  21. Jessica Morris (verified owner)

    I always use this on my toddler’s bug bites and they’ve never gotten infected. It seems to help the bites go away sooner.

  22. Heidi Hayes (verified owner)

    My kids really think it works for poison ivy and bug bites.

  23. Jennifer (verified owner)

    My daughter got a splinter that was too deep for me to get out. 2 applications of this and 30 minutes late the splinter was out!

  24. Caitlin (verified owner)

    Got stung by a bee, whipped this out of my purse and applied within a minute. The burning sensation went away and you couldn’t even see the sting by the next day. Amazing! I felt like a wizard too.

  25. Brenda Good

    I’ve actually used this on acne. Works great.

  26. Tiffany Paff

    This is a must have for the natural medicine cabinet. I cannot count how many times we’ve used this. Everything from bug bites to infected sores.

  27. Jessica (verified owner)

    We haven’t had much occasion to use this, just on a few scrapes, but it makes me feel good knowing it’s in our medicine kit for when the need arises. It’s easy to apply and goes on smoothly, which is important when dealing with wounds.

  28. Morgan Marshall (verified owner)

    Another must have! This was perfect and so effective for my little one when he was stung by a wasp. We gently rubbed it on his bites and immediately saw a huge improvement. I also love that it can be used for splinters, or even on your face for blackheads and such. Such a goodie!

  29. Emily (verified owner)

    Great for soothing bug bites and pulling bee stingers.

  30. Kayla Ortiz (verified owner)

    I call this bug bite magic. Forget bug repellent and got bit? Random insect bite show up? Put some of this on. Tip : be generous with the amount for it to work. Also it does make your skin temporarily back but aside from people asking you why it’s black, it’s not a big deal.

  31. Elisa M (verified owner)

    My family uses this a lot with the warmer weather setting in. Great for all the bug bits we have gotten.

  32. DRM (verified owner)

    This seems to work pretty well. I’ve used it on ant and mosquito bites, especially on my children. The only suggestion I have is that they put what it is used for on the tube itself. I have several of their first aid tubes that have a variety of functions, so it can be confusing. But I used my label maker to print out what each one is for so that I don’t have to try to remember.

  33. grandmakayxox (verified owner)

    I have not had an occasion to use this yet, but often I’m allergic to bug bites so I’m looking forward to trying it. My suggestion would be to attach the label better on the package, I had to tape mine as soon as it came as it was starting to fall off. It would also be good to have some of the uses printed on the label. Thanks

  34. Tanielle (verified owner)

    I had a mystery bite on my hand and this cleared it up quickly and helped to relieve the itching. Definitely a must have for your first aid kit

  35. Brittany S. (verified owner)

    After 3 applications, it got the tiniest splinter out. It really works and I was skeptical.

  36. Brenda Good

    I had what I think was a bite on my face. Dabbed some of this on before I went to bed. Got up next morning and it was gone.

  37. Lindsey H

    I have found this to work well for many things, my kids didn’t feel it helped really well for really ichy mosquito bites, I felt it helped me, but they didn’t.

  38. Nicole A

    Great for bug bites and splinters. It is a must have in our kid emergency kit!

  39. anarchymommy1618 (verified owner)

    Just got this in the mail today, immediately applied to 2 spots of stubborn pregnancy hormone chest acne that just wouldnt tame down after weeks and my son’s many mosquito bites. The inflammation from both are gone after only one treatment. Can’t wait to try the pest aside now to avoid those pesky mosquitoes altogether.
    Very happy with this purchase.

  40. Denise (verified owner)

    I do think the product works (at least as well as other anti-itch products), but it’s not a convenient item for me to use. It comes off very black on your skin. It will mark up any clothes/fabric if it comes into contact, so it must be rubbed into your skin well. When I do rub it in, it looks like a very nasty bruise & then it’s quite tough for me to wipe it off later. So, it’s not something I’d dab on if I’m going somewhere or already in public. If I forget where I’ve put it or to wipe it off, I look dirty/bruised. It’s good for home use if you don’t plan to get out.

    • Earthley (verified owner)

      Hi Denise!

      Try putting a fair amount on and don’t rub in — then, after 10 or 15 minutes, simply wash off. It helps to “draw out” the junk the bite left behind. If you still need something for itching, All-Purpose Salve is great and isn’t messy. 🙂

  41. loveyduncan (verified owner)

    This stuff is amazing! I’ve used it several times since receiving it in the mail and each time I’m just amazed! I used it on my kids for bug bites/stings and after wiping it off I can’t even tell there was a bite there before! And the itching stops! Great stuff!

  42. raelene.murakami (verified owner)

    I didn’t think I would use this stick as much as I do. The biggest thing we’ve used it for has been bug bites. The mosquitos has been horrible this year where we live, but I love that I could use this a few times on them and the bites go away. Make sure to wipe off the excess after leaving it on for 10-15 minutes! Your white sheets will thank you ☺️.

  43. Elauth7312

    I love this stuff! We especially use it for fire ant and bug bites and it works wonders!

  44. Callie

    My family loves this! We really love it for mosquito bites, works wonderfully!

  45. Callie

    My family loves this! We really love it for mosquite bites, works wonderfully!

  46. Kim Phillips (verified owner)

    This stuff saved me on more than one occasion! I had a staph infection on my face and it quickly pulled the infection out so it could begin healing.
    I had a small spot on my cheek that I originally thought was a zit but it never came to a head. It was hard underneath and I could never get it out. I totally forgot about the drawing space. I put it on every day for 3-4 days and the hardness underneath stemmed to dissolve and disappear! I was so relieved!

  47. Faith Miller (verified owner)

    This is so nice to have around the house and in my bag when out and about. Use it on bee stings and bug bites. Its really soothing and effective! Somtimes I even use it as a mask for my face!

  48. Breanna Scott (verified owner)

    This is the most reached for item in our medicine cabinet. I’ve used it for splinters, cuts, styes, ingrown hairs. I love that a little bit goes a long way!

  49. Shelby Mayes (verified owner)

    This along with the all purpose salve are a MUST in our medicine cabinet and when we travel. This stuff is great for bug bites, splinters and acne break outs! It works quick too! It is black, and could get on clothing/bedding, so I would be careful with that!

  50. Abbey Westphal (verified owner)

    I just used this on an insect bite on my knee that was super swollen and the swelling went down and it was much less painful! We have used it on pimples, too. Love it.

  51. Kristina Miller (verified owner)

    Drawing salve
    I’ve only used this once but I’m in love! I had a huge zit starting to come on my chin so I put some of this on and let it sit for 15 min then washed it off. The zit never turned into a white head like it should have! I love how easy it is to apply with the chapstick tube!

  52. Danielle Rush (verified owner)

    My daughter woke up with some kind of sore on her wrist. Whether it was a bug bite or what, we’re not sure. She used the black drawing salve in it 3 times & it was fine the next day! Thanks for a safe product that works so well!

  53. April Dehm (verified owner)

    I use this on my kids all of the time! They like to play with any insect they find outside, so we make sure to have this on hand during spring, summer, and fall. They find all of the biting bugs! But it helps itchies go away quickly and it will draw out anything that has puss (like bad ant bites sometimes do). It works effectively! Thanks!

  54. Julia (verified owner)

    We love this stuff at our house. Even my kids will use it themselves when they have a small splinter that they can’t get out or dont want me to try to get out with tweezers. They know that it will come out with this stuff! We use it mainly for splinters, but also for bites sometimes. Thankfully we haven’t had any serious insect bites, but I love knowing I have this on hand for if we ever do! I keep the large size of this product in our “bandaid box” so the kids know where to find it easily, and I keep the small size in my purse for when we’re on the go.
    Because of the charcoal in this product, it can be messy, but we just always cover it up with a bandaid and have not had problems with it. I highly recommend this product!

  55. mygraceoverflows4u (verified owner)

    This stuff is so amazing and I am so glad to have something like this in an easy to use, on the go tube. My son is always getting scrapes and bites and a few have gotten swollen and discolored before I had this stuff. Not anymore!! I was just reading the description again about using on acne, so I am going to give this a try!

  56. Amanda Passmore (verified owner)

    This stuff is great! My son had 2 splinters so I applied this and he was able to keep it on, for the most part. After 15 minutes, I went with tweezers and the splinters just slid out – I didn’t have to do anything! It was incredible.

  57. Cellina (verified owner)

    I have used this on a few bites between my husband and I and works great! In one application it stops the itching, and definitely brings the swelling down considerably. I just read that this is good for acne as well, so I can’t wait to try it out for my stubborn acne! Thanks Earthley

  58. nperez0627 (verified owner)

    As a first time drawing salve user, this stuff amazed me. I had mosquitoe bites all over my legs and I was itching like crazy. I used some of the salve as directed and within minutes the itch and the welts were completely gone. I highly recommend this product, and love that I can easily take it with me anywhere!

  59. atekiatrentham (verified owner)

    Great for bug bites! When the kids go outside and forget to use “Pest Aside” they get ate up and come inside and apply black drawing salve. It works quickly! Helps with itch and swelling!

  60. Chellie Anne (verified owner)

    I had never used Black Drawing Salve before but when Earthley had a promo for this I grabbed one for our first aid kit. We do a lot of camping and hiking through the Summer. Well, my kids both ended up getting stung by bees and so did I. I applied Black Drawing Salve to all three stings and within 5 minutes the pain went away. The itch stayed but the dreadful acute pain immediately subsided. Now, onto my next story and experience with BDS: towards the end of Summer my 8 lb Westy Chihuahua mix was playing in the back yard with my daughter when she suddenly yelled and dropped to the ground. She had been stung on the pad of her paw too. I put her into a bath of vinegar to neutralize the sting, then applied black drawing salve to her foot and bandaged it. My dog went into shock but the bite and the vet said small dogs are always affected the most by stings, but she survived and after several hours returned to normal. Thank goodness! So this product helps with people and pets.

  61. Leah Thompson (verified owner)

    This is one of my favorite products! I live in the woods and the bug bites are no joke! This thing works magic on bug bites and I’ve even seen it work on a spider bite! So awesome!!

  62. Kirsten Elliott (verified owner)

    I love this for a face mask to draw out toxins. When i use this on a bump that has not surfaced it brings the yucky stuff right out, it amazes me everytime! I also use on bites that sting and itch with great results!

  63. Sarena (verified owner)

    I LOVE THIS STUFF! It can be used for everything! My favorite is a face mask. Every once in a while a nice Black Drawing Salve face mask is what your face needs. Big bites, stings, poison ivy, boils, acne, splinters, anything that needs to be drawn out!

  64. Faith Nevarez (verified owner)

    The day I got this in the mail my son had a bad bite on his inner leg, I put this on before bed and when he woke up it was gone! Since I have used it for an ingrown hair, and a splinter, works like magic. We love this!

  65. Whitney Gealta (verified owner)

    I LOVE THIS STUFF! I have needed this more times than I knew I would. My daughter got bit twice by a spider and after applying this twice, the bites are completely gone. I need to make sure I keep this in my arsenal at all times!

  66. Libby J (verified owner)

    My son was stung by a wasp and was in a lot of pain. We applied this immediately after the sting, let it sit and within seconds he was feeling some relief. After wiping it off, he says the stings are still painful, but not at all what they felt initially. Highly recommend having this on hand for bites/stings. It works well and quick.

  67. Melissa Long (verified owner)

    We won’t ever be without this stuff in our house! It works like a charm for bug bites. I’ve applied it with only one application and my bug bite was gone the next morning. It helps to relieve the discomfort that comes along with bites as well. Its great stuff!

  68. Jessica (verified owner)

    Works great. So many uses we even use it on the dog if she gets a tick or bug bite.

  69. Kristin Brcak (verified owner)

    My son is allergic to mosquito so I try a lot of different all natural solutions. Yesterday he was bitten on the neck several times by a gnat (I didn’t even know gnats bite!) I wiped this on the red areas he kept itching and he immediately stopped itching. Which is great because I dont want it to get infected, and have you ever gotten a 3 year old to stop itching when asked! I love this product and I am so thankful I had it on-hand. Also their bug spray is good too!

  70. Taryn Greenman (verified owner)

    My 5 year old daughter was stung by a bee this afternoon and was screaming in pain, I immediately iced it, and then remembered I had the black drawing salve in my medicine cabinet. It had been about 10 minutes of constant pain by the time i slathered it on and within about 30 seconds she said woah, it doesn’t hurt anymore! Best true review I could possibly give. Even my husband said, “wow, your crazy natural remedies actually work!” Thanks Earthley!
