I am pleased with the product and the tin. It is just like the salve we've used for many years. Wish it still came in the 11 oz. tin, but this smaller size will still last quite a while!
KRESTOL EUCALYPTUS GEL
The two main ingredients in Krestol Eucalyptus Gel are traditionally known to disinfect and heal wounds. This special blend has been around for generations and is unlike any other product available. In fact, Krestol Salve was first introduced in 1908, the year the McNess brand was started.
The Krestol Eucalyptus Gel is the exact same formula used for generations, but now available in three sizes. These tins contain 4.2 oz of the Krestol.
We know that some people have had the 11 oz tin in their medicine cabinet for years and years (and years.) Let's face it, you probably should replace it a lot sooner than you do. The smaller size makes it easier (and cheaper) to replace more often. And, did you ever notice that the 11 oz tins can was hard to open? The smaller size has a curled lip that makes it much easier to take off and put back on.
Also, please note that we have two other sizes available. If you are a heavy user of the Krestol, we now have a 18.5 oz plastic tub available. In addition, we also have a small, 1.8 oz TSA compatible travel size available in a glass jar. (Perfect to give to friends and family that may not know about the qualities of Krestol.)

The best drawing salve bar none! Takes away soreness from any skin injury even a splinter. Been using it my whole life.
This salve has been in the medicine chest in my family since I was an itty bitty kid. I remember it being used on myself as well as my siblings and my parents for every wound, burn, cut, & scrape imaginable. That scent is a memory inducer. Each time I use it, thousands of memories of being slathered in this stuff as a youngster comes rushing back. Well, not actually slathered, as a little bit goes a long way. Many of the wounds I received as a child are no longer even scars, since this medicine makes the wounds heal without leaving a noticeable scar. I was happy to find it for sale in a much smaller can, since the huge can I have from my childhood is nearly empty. I'd have to live another 80 years to use a can that big again. The can lip redesign is awesome, and the product is one I will always use and recommend to anyone who has a wound that needs healing. The odor and can label design is familiar, and you know that it works.
If memories could have a smell this is one of my families! My grandma and poppy used this stuff religiously on everything, and told us it would heal the worst boo boos immediately. This was a smell we all in my family associated with them. I don't know why it took so long for me to track it down but I'm glad I did. It's the same smell as always. I had to order 15 tins so everyone could have their own. It was packaged so well and I will be buying more in the future.
This product is a must have for any in home or barn first aid kit! Helps soothe most any scratch, chapped area, burn, bump or bruise. We used to even purchase a super huge can for our barn to put on our horses hooves when they would get dry and crack or when they would stand in the wet. This is a very versatile product!
Again these products are the best. I highly recommend for burns, scrapes, etc.
I haven’t even opened it yet, and the two extra ones I ordered were for other people, but I know it’s excellent. I’ve had some of this salve that I’ve used for years and my mother used it when I was a kid so I just wanted to make sure I never run out. It works much better than anything else I’ve ever used.
