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)
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.
How to Use Herbal Supplements (Generally Speaking)
Herbal remedies, supplements, and tonics are fundamentally different from pharmaceuticals (and we like it that way). They are designed to restore your body and its systems to homeostasis gently- working with your body.
We post basic dosage guidelines, but keep in mind if you have more body mass or a faster metabolism than the average bear, you may need to take a larger dose than indicated. If there are hard-and-fast limitations on how often you can take the product, it will be listed on the package. Most can be used up to six times daily without problems (but we doubt that you would need to do that).
Remember, there are no “magic bullets” in life, and any product (herbal, pharmaceutical, or otherwise) claiming 100% success without knowing you, your constitution, and your lifestyle is lying and trying to get into your wallet. Often, herbalists (and MDs) need to try several products before we find the one that works for your unique biochemistry.
Feel free to email us if the product didn’t quite do the job, we can recommend another that could do the trick. We are blessed with many plants that have the same action in the body- and often it’s just a matter of finding the right one for you.
