Bite Paste...

Posted by RetroRae none (My Page) on

I have been experimenting with my herbal first aid kit and I am currently working on a bug bite/general venomous bite paste/poultice. I am planning on using a base of bentonite clay, adding in activated charcoal, some cayenne for circulation and drawing toxins out, plantain and comfrey.
Does anyone have thoughts on this?

RE: Bite Paste...

good idea!

your formula sounds pretty good as is. i would likely also add yarrow, its probably the best wound healing herb growing in north america and it has anti toxin properties as well, has a long history of use for venomous bites and stings.

RE: Bite Paste...

I heard of using white oak bark and plantain for snakebites.
