J.R. Watkins Petro-Carbo Medicated First Aid Salve Review

Our parents have a small business and yesterday, they received some new inventory. One of the items they received was a canister of J.R. Watkins Petro Carbo salve, which is a first aid salve for minor cuts, scratches, bug bites, and burns. It’s a thick salve made of a few different kinds of oils, like cejeput, camphor, and spruce oil, in addition to a few other ingredients.

So far, my mom,  my dad, and my sister are the only ones that have used it and they claim that it works really well. My mother thinks it smells and looks unappealing, but my father is fine with the scent. He thinks that maybe his parents had it around their house when he was growing up. My sister thinks it smells bad too and if I were to be honest, I would tell you that it did too. It smells like a mixture of bacon grease and one of my trumpet oils. That is not a pleasant smell. Believe me.

Even though the tin says something about natural spruce, you can’t hardly smell any spruce.

I have yet to use it on anything as I haven’t had any cuts worthy of this potent salve. But my dad put it on his dry cracked thumb, and it’s healing already. My mom is using it on dry, cracked skin as well and my sister is using it on some cuts. Our dad would rate it a 9 and our mom would rate it a 10. I, unfortunately, can’t rate it yet, but it looks pretty terrifying.

You can hop on over to amazon.com to see what people have to say about this product. It’s an interesting read 🙂
