Got Skin? If so, you need this kit!
Whether you’re hiking, camping, hunting, or just driving around, it’s a really good idea to have some basic supplies that can help you address skin first aid emergencies. I got to thinking about this recently and it’s surprising how little one really needs. With only a few herbs and supplies, one can manage bleeding, venomous bites and lacerations pretty easily.
With just three herb formulas I regularly control bleeding, manage venomous bites and stings and accelerated wound healing. Those formulas are:
I recommend folks have access to these formulas during times when they might get a wound…you know…like the times when you have your skin with you. I’d carry a tincture and a powder of each. Wait..a Poultice tincture? Yup. A poultice tincture. These days I only use the powdered poultice as a wound dressing when I want to pull out infection and debris. For most wounds I use the poultice formula in a tincture form to make into a spray to accelerate healing, fight infection and sooth.
The Venom & Sting formula tincture is used internally for venomous bites and stings and the powdered poultice is mixed with water and applied topically.
The Bleeding formula is given internally as a tincture (do not use internally during pregnancy) and the powder is used topically to staunch the bleeding wound.
I’ve also started using a unique wound closure technique using duct tape and fishing line…yeah…duct tape is good for everything. :0)
