Watkins Petro-Carbo Salve has been produced since 1888. It has weathered the test of time and today is still the best healing salve available for cuts, scrapes, burns and it will draw out splinters. People have joined Watkins as Independent Associates because of Petro-Carbo! Many have found that it will help heal much better than most of the off-the-shelf salves and ointments. Some have actually referred to it as Voodoo salve.
An elderly gentleman in his 80's credits Petro-Carbo salve with saving his leg. When he was a young boy his leg became infected and the doctors could not get it to heal. They told his mother to take her son home for the night and return to the hospital the next day when they would amputate his leg to save his life. His mother took him home and as you can imagine was very distraught. The door to door Watkins man knocked on their door that day and was told to leave because they had very pressing problems and were not interested in buying anything. The Watkins man asked if he could help as was told the story. He took out a can of Petro-Carbo and told the mother to give it a try - What do you have to lose? The next day when the young man and his mother went back to the hospital, the doctor was amazed to find that the boy's leg was already starting to heal. As a result, the doctor did not perform the amputation and the old gentleman was able to walk up to a Watkins booth at a state fair and tell his story.
