“Big Wounds-No Stitching!” Wound Paste is a must-have in your First Aid Kit!
The “wound paste” is made of 5 herbs that sanitizes the wound, fights infection, glues the wound together, and keeps it clean from germs after applying it. In other words, it is a good natural bandage that would speed the healing process of any size of a wound. Wound paste will keep you from getting stitches at the doctors office where the end result would be scars. This wound paste also may prevent the scarring after a wound is healed. It helps heal even big wounds fast!
- Comfrey root powder – 1 part
- Slippery elm powder – 1 part
- Myrrh powder – 1 part
- Bayberry root powder – 1/2 part
- Garlic powder – 1/4 part
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic (optional)
- Hydrogen Peroxide (optional)
*You may substitute Olive Oil with any other oil such as Avocado Oil, Grapeseed Oil, or any other vegetable oil.
Store this mix in a tightly covered, small glass jar. It’s a good idea to keep a tiny bag of this mix in your emergency kit, car, or purse.
What to do:
Let the wound bleed a little to flush out the wound. If you happen to have hydrogen peroxide near by, spray it on the wound to sanitize. Then apply pressure beside the wound and fill it with wound-paste powder.
Pack the dry powder into the wound or you may mix the wound powder with a little bit of oil and then pack it into the wound. *I prefer dry powder verses mixing it with oil, that way it creates less hassle and works as great. Apply pressure on the wound to stop the bleeding. Put a bandage on. If it’s a bigger wound wrap it with a sterile gauze and check it again the next day. Add more powder if needed, but do NOT mess with the powder already there.
This powder absorbs the blood and makes a really nice scab/glue to aid in holding the wound shut.
Facial wounds bleed a lot right away. They stop rather quickly if pressure is applied.
- It’s important to stay calm, never panic.
- Assess the damage.
- Apply a steady pressure to the wound for approximately 10-15 minutes to stop the bleeding.
- Proceed with same steps as described above under “What to do” section.
People can loose a lot more blood than you might think, without it being serious. Head/face injuries bleed more because we got a higher number of blood vessels there then other parts of our body.
Couple days ago my 5 year-old son ran to me in a panic showing me his bloody finger. Blood was gashing from it. He tried to cut open an avocado and knife slipped and made a deep cut on his finger. I thought of a “wound paste” that I made before, so I applied it on his finger. The bleeding stopped and he didn’t have problems with it even after accidentally wetting it at the end of the day. Wound stayed shut anyway. I reapplied the wound paste for two more days with a new bandage and in about 3-4 days he forgot he had it!
First picture is how his wound looked like on a second day after applying the wound paste. Second picture is how it looked like on the fourth day. Super fast recovery!
