Herbal/Alternative Drawing Agents

These seems to be a stumper for most any place I've called.

What is an herbal/alternative drawing agent to replace epsom salts and/or black salve? Something that is mild to the skin?

I know placing a split open aloe leaf over an infected spot will draw out infection but a bandage need to be placed over it.

What will work good in a warm compress?

Why do I always find this stuff after I post the thread?

Essential Oils
Chamomile, Lavender, and Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) are “the most
effective oils for treating an abscess,” says Patricia Davis, founder of the London
School of Aromatherapy. They can be used singly or in combination. Put a few
drops on a hot compress and place it over the abscess to draw out the infection and
reduce the pain and inflammation. Leave the compress on until it cools. Repeat as
needed.1

This is from an Ayurveda book: for boils - either apply cooked onions as poultice or apply a paste of ginger powder and turmeric (one half teaspoon of each) directly to the boil.

We always used that black ointment growing up.

yes --- Chamomile . Make a strong "tea" and soak foot in the solution. Will draw out boils, and impurities. As kids we had this for drawing out splinters. Chamomile has anti-bacterial action also.
Now if you were to make a mud with chamomile, lavender, tea tree oil, or manuka oil , mixed in to french green clay - montmorillonlite (spelling) , you can pack it on to the area -- great for facial blemishes also.

It has to be a compress, not a poultice. Can not be black salve.

What is an Ayurveda book?

Carmen - if I make a chamomile tea, add a drop or two of the oil, some lavender oil and tea tree oil...would this be a strong drawing compress that wouldn't irritate her skin?

Ayurveda is a natural healing system from India. Eating proper foods for your body type, natural healing, staying in balance. Also incorporates yoga, breathing properly and other things beyond my knowledge.

Thanks Doggiedad...the solution I mixed up worked very well. Some of the inflammation was gone and it wasn't quite as warm. AND...it didn't' burn her!
