Put the coconut oil and the shea butter into a double boiler, or a glass measuring cup (or similar heat resistant container like a Mason jar) in a cook pot filled with 2 to 4 inches of water.
Heat the mixture at a simmer to melt the oil, beeswax, and the butter. Stir consistently and watch carefully because it will melt rather quickly and can easily become scorched.
Pour in the calendula infused olive oil and stir well.
Remove the pot from the heat.
Sprinkle in the bentonite clay.
Stir to combine thoroughly.
Add in the vitamin E, aloe vera, and activated charcoal.
Stir again to make sure all of the ingredients are combined into the black Amish drawing salve mixture.
Drop in any essential oils you have chosen to use now and stir once more to combine all of the ingredients.
Pour the hot black Amish drawing salve into a single or many small containers with a firm fitting lid and allow it to cool completely so it hardens.
Stir the black Amish drawing salve in a cool dry place until ready to use.
