Great product you must try
This is a healing salve! We use it on all sores - it heals from the inside out and helps prevent and draw out infection. All of our family use this for years regularly!

Best product around
I have use this product all my life. My parents used it. I bought some when married and it lasted until about 2 years ago. So I was so happy to be able to buy it again. Already used to loosen a hang nail and prevent infection. Got for any type infection.

I am sixty-six and i have been using it all my life. It was sold door to door when I was growing up. We always kept it on hand along with the campher sauve, the spices, vanilla, etc. My husband came in and told me that one of the girl's lamb had prolaped and I went and got the Petro-corbo and he used it on the lamb and it healed it up and was able to show it at the county show and won it's class. I put it on ant bites to take the pain away. My husband puts it on his feet for fungus. We use it for all cuts, scraps and burns we use the Campher. My girls are believers. I have used it on our pets when they had surgery or had a cut. Best product I know that has spanned the years of time.

Awesome product!
My mother told me about this product that my father used before he passed. It was made by Vaseline. I use it as a daily regimen on my feet and for cracked fingers because of the nature of my job. I love it. It works just as it was described by my mother. I will keep a can in my house always.
