Some use lamp black, plus graphite, yes.
The girl friends family (and ancestors) sold what was a stove polish recipe from the 1800's. Their stove polish was petroleum jelly and graphite heated and mixed, . . with winter green added to hide the burning petroleum jelly smell. I used it just once.
I now use Meeco brand, which doesn't smoke, and only smells faintly like school art class water-based poster paints. Holds up just as well as any others I tried so far.
