Recipe On How To Make A Charcoal Patch
¼ cup of water
2 Tablespoons of charcoal powder
1/2 teaspoon psyllium seed husk powder (if doubling recipe start with slight 3/4 tsp)
Bandage wrap or strips of cloth and safety pin or other fastener
Put water in glass and gently add activated charcoal powder and psyllium seed husk powder. Stir for approximately one minute, until the mixture begins to gel and pull away from the glass and forms a ball. Be patient and do not add more psyllium seed husk for this will make the gel hard and not workable.
Lay out a 12" x 12" piece of plastic wrap and place gel in the center. Smooth out to desired shape, about three inches from center in all directions or how desired. Place another piece of plastic on top, the same size as the bottom, gently press down and then roll out to desired size and thickness, as if you were rolling a pie crust.
Now place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, up to three months. Remove and let thaw before using, which takes about 15 minutes. Cut poultice (do not cut frozen) to desired size/s. Return unused portion to freezer.
Carefully remove one side of plastic from patch and apply to affected area and gently press down. You may wish to wrap again with a plastic wrap to keep from leaking and or then apply a cloth bandage to hold in place.
Change patch at least every eight hours.
