Question about traditional Jamaican medicine.?

I was in Port Maria,Jamaica some years ago and stepped on a really dirty,rusty nail.My Jamaican friend poured John Crow Batty Rum in the hole after they pried it out-which burned- and then used this black paste made out of herbs,roots and such that smelled a little like petrol.I have to say that I never had to go to the hospital,never had an infection and was walking okay within 2 days and I can't for the life of me remember what the name of the medicine was.Can anyone tell me what it was?

    Black Ointment is the name of that medicine, sold in most local pharmacy.

    It works. Can't forget the smell.

    It sounds like road scrapings mixed with batty bizness. Very healthy!
