I am 70 and have used it for years. My son once said "mom, I think if I cut my arm off you would say, put some salve on and you know, I think it would work!"
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 we've changed the tin size. Now available in a 4.2 oz tin.
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.)

this salve is hands down the best salve ever made. the way it aids in healing cuts and other similar things is truly amazing. I just gave it to a friend who had a sore on his nose from a cold and he put this salve on his nose just one night and this morning(9-3-2019) he told me that his nose is almost healed up completely. There is nothing like this salve, period.
I am 61 and have been using this save since I was two. My nana used it for everything, burns, cuts,scraps. I loved the save it was thick. Not sure about the gel, yes same ingredients but not the same. It's very thin and does not smell as potent. Just hopping it works as well as the save. From Sugar River Trading Co/The McNess Store Hi Ellen, Please don’t let the name change fool you. We’re using the exact same ingredients and using the exact same processes, at the exact same manufacturing facility where it was produced prior to the name change. The reason for the name change has to do with government regulations—to keep the old name we would have had to do ongoing expensive testing, which would have resulted in our needing to more than double the price. The new name, Krestol Eucalyptus Gel reflects the main ingredients and the closest descriptor we could come up with other than salve. We figured our customers would understand and prefer to save the money. Sorry for any confusion!
This is a Quality; very unique [skinky] - but 100% Positive; Proven results [-on my childrens 'sensitive'areas that No Mother would want to apply a Steroid based Rx creme!]; Stops the painful itchiness, scaliness, pain from dry patches. Best to use at night, i'd found-...Sincerely the Best Product!
My mother used this on me when I was a child, and still has her original cam of it. I have used it on my sons and bought them each a can and now bought one for my grandson to use as he and his wife now have a child of their own. Best stuff ever.
I work out my upper body, lower body & run 3 times a week. This gel gets lathered on feet, legs, calves & lower back before bedtime those days. Keeps my joints & muscles lubed & ready to go. You know the saying - treat your body good & your body will return the favor (& life is stays good at 62.)
Have used this for about 50 years....wouldn't use anything else....
We have used McNess on ourselves and pets for many years because wounds heal quickly when treated with your salve. An acquaintance with diabetes has an open wound on the front of a calf, and his doctor had him applying Neosporin, but it was not healing; it was growing larger. I ordered a tin of McNess for him and in a few days you can see new, pink skin growing as the wound is improving and healing. I am sure his doctor will not like it, but results speak for themselves.
used this product for years. Very good
