Home Remedies for Wounds

By Anthony Gucciardi

Although cuts and wounds aren’t particularly threatening in nature, they can be quite painful as well as a nuisance.

However, infections could result from cuts, so many individuals turn to some kind of pharmaceutical solution to clean the laceration because that is truly the only solution they know of. Along with nearly all other issues, though, cleaning and hastening the healing process of a cut or wound can be done with numerous natural solutions –  not the all too common Neosporin.

Being recognized as one of nature’s mighty superfoods, honey has long been utilized for its antibacterial properties. One study published in the journal Microbiology found that honey prevented a type of streptococcus pyogenes from inhibiting the healing of wounds.

Researchers conducting the lab tests found that even the smallest amount of honey was enough to kill off the majority of bacterial cells on the skin which infects the wound site. Honey could even be utilized to preventwounds in the first place.

Not only is the information presented by the study proof of honey’s healing power, but people have literally been benefiting from the topical use of honey over the course of history. You could also place a band aid over the thin layer of honey on the wound, and apply a thin layer of organic cold pressed coconut oil to further prevent infection.

Another widely used solution for cuts is the topical appliance of cayenne powder. Cayenne can be used to not only heal wounds, but to help stop any bleeding as well. In fact, many people attest to its ability to halt bleeding nearly instantly. Simply pour some cayenne powder on the wound (however much is needed depending on size) and wrap the wound site with a bandage. You may leave it on throughout the day or overnight, and re-apply how many times is needed. Of course you could combine other natural solutions with the cayenne to clean the cut, such as honey, or apple cider vinegar. As an alternative to stop the bleeding, black pepper has been shown to be effective while also harnessing analgesic, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties.

    Great suggestions! I love using Arnica Montana oil with DMSO for preventing bruises and pain from injuries, as well as bee stings and acne. Yes…bee stings and acne. The Arnica is great for reducing/preventing bruising and the DMSO is a solvent that helps the Arnica penetrate further, but also has its own anti-bacterial/viral/fungal properties as well. DMSO is very powerful and should only be handled by someone who is very educated on its properties and uses.

    Timely post. My son has a stubborn wound which he keeps disturbing. I had applied melalueca oil and Renew lotion which has melalueca oil in it. This helped heal the wound by 25%, then I read your article on honey. Before him going to bed I cleansed the wound with antibacterial soap, dried it, then spread it with antibacterial spray made from thyme, then I applied honey, covered it with a bandage so he would not disturb it overnight. In the morning, despite his bandage having fallen off, his wound was 75% healed!! Thanks.

    Thanks for this information. My acupuncturist told me about the healing powers of honey.
