Poultices are used to cool and soothe tissues after hard work or injury to draw proteins and bacterial products out of areas of inflammation or infection. They are commonly applied to bites, abscesses, wounds (not recommended for this unless extremely pure), areas of fresh musculoskeletal injury and as a prophylactic measure following hard work.
All poultices are based on clays such as kaolin and silicates. They work by drawing inflammatory proteins out of the tissues and dissipating heat by drawing it from the inflamed tissues into the wet clay and then off by evaporation. Additives such as mints, witch hazel and camphor produce a cooling sensation on the skin and help block pain. Glycerin helps hold water in the poultice and makes it easy to apply and remove.
