Stop bleeding!!!!

diy Styptic Powder

Published by admin on 07-Dec-2018 11:20 (293 reads)

You don't have to live off the grid to have an accident in the kitchen or out in the paddock or shed. Sometimes you cut yourself and need to stop the bleeding.

A great way to do this is to carry a little bottle of Styptic Powder in your pocket at all times, or at least have it somewhere that you can get to quickly.

I have a little bottle of home made Styptic Powder in my kitchen, in my first aid kit and one in the car. This is easy to make yourself from stuff you probably have in your kitchen cupboard (and if you don't, perhaps you should, lol).

Making styptic powder is simple, inexpensive, and it contains no harmful ingredients. Here's what you can use:
Yarrow: dried
Cayenne Pepper: dried
Stinging Nettle: dried
Comfrey Root or Leaf: dried
Cinnamon Powder: dried
Turmeric Powder: dried
Bentonite clay

Mix equal amounts of the powders together and pop them into a little bottle. That's it!!! Simple..... YEESSSSSS!!!!!!

If you don't have all the ingredients don't stress even using any of those powders on their own, can work, if you are caught out without your little bottle of prepared powder.

To use, apply the styptic powder to a wound and press lightly. The bleeding should stop within a minute or so. If the wound is large or deep, it may take a few tries.

I know what your saying.... oooh the Cayenne or the Nettle is going to sting too much to use, but for a start once nettle is dried it doesn't sting and while it’s true that cayenne pepper may cause some temporary stinging, it can help to desensitize the nerve receptors in a wound temporarily. Cayenne is antibacterial and anti-fungal, so it can really help with wound healing.

Make some today and have it ready for any accidents you have.

Obviously, if you need to visit a doctor if the wound requires stitches or whatever, then you should do that. :)

Introducing Kezzeens Kreations

One of my favorite Off Grid things I like to do is to create my own lotions and potions.

I have been playing around with creating natural lotions and potions for about 40 years. We use them to help keep us healthy, and without the need to buy products which contain a lot of nasty unnatural chemicals.

I have been asked many times why don't I sell my products? Well now I do. :)

My daughter, Neen, a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and now a mother of 4 delightful children herself, is now following in my footsteps. Together we are now offering our natural homemade products for other people to share their benefits.

We are not a large company obviously and all our products are made by hand in our own homes and we use only the best ingredients. We create with organic, raw and natural stuff. We do not mass produce and the products may change as to whatever we have available at any given time. You can ask us to make something special for you if you like.

We are also Doterra Wellness Advocates and not only use their oils to help us in our daily lives, but we include them in our products. If you would like to know how to buy your Doterra Essential Oils at wholesale prices, please talk to us.

We welcome you to our new venture and hope that you find something that you would like to try.

Kerri-Ann and Neen
