Drawing salve recipe.

COUNTRYSIDE: My grandmother passed this excellent drawing salve recipe on to me.

Plantain is a pesky weed in most grasses and in the wild. Pick the tall stringy leaves and put in a sealed jar filled with cooking oil for one month. Strain oil into kettle and heat on low. In a double boiler, heat a small amount of beeswax. Mix together in the plantain oil kettle and put into jars.--Nancy Trevorrow, Warren, Michigan

COUNTRYSIDE: Try Ichthammol Salve (ointment/dressing)

My dad used it for years and so do we. We use on people and horses. Always follow instructions.--F. E. Locke
