I still have an old tin container of this salve, it has to be at least 60 years old. It came in a small tin like a snuff container but smaller, less than 2 inches across, orange with black letters. " SMILE'S PRID Salve ", it has rosin and beeswax base with other healing ingredients like sulphur, Acidum Aarbolicum. I can't make out the rest of the ingredients because this tin is so old. My grandmother used this stuff for everything and used it on me. It really works. Smells like pine tar, it was thick and sometimes needed to be heated up to get it to spread on a bandage.
