Wounds and Cuts




Treatment

If the body is in a healthy condition, a wound or cut will heal readily. Tie a bandage or tourniquet on the wound to stop bleeding. Wash the cut or wound with a solution of powdered golden seal and myrrh, made by steeping a heaping tsp. of each in a pint of boiling water for twenty minutes. If the cut is large and gaps open, place it in the golden seal and myrrh solution as hot as can be borne. Continue this until the wound closes. When the wound is practically closed, press it together, sprinkle a little powdered golden seal on the outside and bandage, using strips of adhesive tape to hold the skin edges together. If redness occurs around wound, sprinkle burnt alum directly on the wound. Wood sage is an excellent remedy for old wounds or inflamed wounds. Use as a poultice.
