This powder is so versatile! It is a fantastic alternative to styptic powder (when shaving or trimming dog nails). It is great for those on blood thinners to help stop bleeding and heal cuts. It also is a fantastic wilderness first aid item- even large gaping or puncture wounds benefit from the powder. The herbs are antimicrobial, styptic, and even draw out toxins (great for animal bites).
Blood Stop comes in .5 oz. glass jars.
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible): Yarrow*, Plantain* (*organic)
How to Use:
Blood Stop is a powder that should be kept dry and out of direct heat and light to stay potent. It is used on cuts and other open wounds to prevent infection, stop bleeding, and create a barrier (excellent for puncture wounds and animal attacks- as both herbs fight infection and draw out toxins).
Use the smallest amount needed to pack the wound and staunch bleeding. This is a great product to have on hand for people on blood thinners, people with livestock, and folks with rough and tumble lifestyles.
