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

I love the J.R. Watkins Petro-Carbo Medicated First Aid Salve. It works great on cuts, scrapes, burns, bee stings, bug bites, and skin irritations. We purchased a 4.37 ounce container a year or two ago and still use it today. In fact, that one container will probably last our family several years.

watkins petro carbo salveI have dry skin on the edges of my fingertips and thumbs. Sometimes I pick at it, and they end up bleeding. When this happens, I add some of the Petro-Carbo salve and they are healed in no time. I took a picture so you could see what I’m talking about. I even burned my hand once while cooking dinner for my wife. I ran to the medicine cabinet and put on some Watkins Medicated Petro-Carbo First Aid Salve and felt immediate relief.

The suggested retail price is $12.99 per can. If you do some price shopping online, you can get a can for about $7. After doing a price comparison to other first aid salves at the local drug store, I can tell you that this product is priced competitively.

Let me tell you, it’s worth every penny you pay for it. Sure, you can buy something cheaper, but I doubt you will find a much higher quality product than this one. If you haven’t already tried the J.R. Watkins Petro-Carbo Medicated First Aid Salve, you should. You can visit the company’s website and order a container. You won’t regret it.

    Sounds very similar to the salve I use for such things, but a sight less expensive! I may have to look it up and check the ingredients out. The one we use is called B&W Salve, which stands for Burn and Wound. It’s a honey-based salve with several healing herbs. My husband burned himself badly on something he had just welded, but after a week with B&W, he didn’t even end up with a scar. If this JR Watkins Petro-Carbo Medicated First Aid Salve is as good as that, I’ll buy it!

    Even though I do not have the J. R. Watkins Medicated Petro-Carbo First Aid Salve, after this review, I may actually go to CVS or Walgreens and buy this product. Or better yet, I will probably do my research to see it I can get it for less than retail value.
