Creosote is often used commercially as a wood preservative. Medicinally, it can be used to relieve fever, colds, and stomach pains. It has also been used as a general pain killer, diuretic, and anti-diarrheal. Since it is antimicrobial, it is often used to treat cuts and bacterial or fungal infections. Salves, teas, candles, and oils can be made from creosote. Our creosote is organically grown at the Orchard Community Learning Center farm in South Phoenix.
