I got some kind of bug or spider bites. I noticed them because they hurt and were itching. I applied the black ointment it didn’t take long to notice the improvements to the itching and burning, and it dried up the bites. Great quality compared to others I’ve tried. I’m always impressed with the ingredients Christopher’s uses.
Quite small tub, but it seems powerful. Need to keep in fridge, and definitely away from children. I applied to a plaster and put over a raised bump on my skin. I will reapply after my shower. The smell is strong, but not bothersome, except that in bed I kept thinking I could smell burning wood, and got up to investigate, only to realise that the smell was from the black ointment on my skin. Didn't bother me after that!
I don't like the smell of this stuff, I'm not sure what it is burnt wood smell, but the product itself is good I had a splinter in my foot that I haven't been able to get out I applied this product covered with plaster overnight helped bring splinter to the surface.
I am allergic to mosquitos and when i get bitten the bites swell and become infected and take a very long time
to heal.The itch also comes back every night.This black ointment relieves the itching for me.Just wish the smell wasnt so strong,but I am getting used to it and it does seem to dissipate relatively quickly.
This is great for drawing out splinters, thorns, metal slivers. I have used it for decades on my kids, husband, dogs, and myself. If you can't pull something out with the tweezers, this will do the job.
Unfortunately I had a reaction to an ingredient in the product. That is specific to my skin and should not be a judgement as to the effectiveness of the product. I have used many of Dr Chritopher's product; ranging from Hawthorn, Motherwort, Eyebright to Cayenne extract. I am an avid fan of his formulation, aside from my reaction to this one.
Has many uses, most outstanding result for me was to draw out the toxins after 2 spider bites-I applied this and within a day the bite broke open with a foul smelling liquid that this product helped to pull out. Should be part of everyone's home medicinal emergency kit.
