Making Fire With Flint/SteelMaking Fire With Flint/Steel In this method of fire-making, sparks are shaved off a piece of steel by striking it briskly with a piece of flint or other rock.

Natural Wound Care

Category : Equipment, First Aid

Cuts and scrapes happen every day. While most don’t need a doctor’s  attention, there are some very basic first aid remedies that should  be applied so cuts don’t get infected.
If the cut is bleeding, use a clean cloth, and apply pressure. Then  clean out the cut to avoid infection.

Here are a few alternative remedies to antibiotic creams you may want  to try:

Garlic has been used for years when treating cuts. It contains  antimicrobial agents that can protect you from infections. To use,  mix three cloves with a cup of wine. Put the mixture in a blender.  Then leave it there for three hours. Strain it. Apply the mixture to  your cleaned wound. Perform twice a day.
zillions-of-onions

 

 

 

No garlic? Onions have the same antimicrobial element called allicin.  Cut the onion into halves, and crush one part using a blender. You  can mix it with honey for best results. Apply it on the wound and  leave on for about 20 minutes, then wash off. Apply the mixture three  times a day.
Lavender-Pure-Essential-Oil

 

 

 

 

Apply lavender essential oil to the cut. The oil usually doesn’t  create any additional pain and may help alleviate the pain from the wound. Lavender speeds healing and kills germs.

Place raw honey on the cut, and then cover it with a bandage. Raw honey has been used for over 2,000 years to prevent and heal infections. (Raw honey is available in most grocery stores.)

Get white vinegar from your kitchen counter, and mix it with a pint of water. Soak the affected area to remove scabs. The solution will kill all bacteria already present in the cut. Vinegar may sting, so be very careful.
aloe-vera-gel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aloe can be used with almost all types of skin problems, including cuts. If you have an aloe vera plant, break off a leaf, and apply its juice on the affected part. Repeat after a few hours.

If the cut is deep, won’t stop bleeding, or was caused by stepping on  something rusty, a doctor’s attention should be sought. (A tetanus  shot may be on order.) As with any natural remedy, be sure to keep  allergies in mind.
