Home Remedies For Wounds

Eastern European Home Remedies For Wounds

–  Take honey and beeswax or pure wax – 100 g, pine resin, 20 g of propolis, pure white incense (10 – 15 grains), white mastic, lard (2 table spoonfuls of it or of pine vaseline), blossom of calendula (Calendula officinalis) (10– 12 blossoms). Mix and melt until it becomes homogenous on water bath. When it cools, put in a small jar. Leave in the fridge to tighten. Put it on the wounds 1- 2 times a day.

– On water bath melt 25 g of natural incense and 50 g of wax. Add 1 coffee cup of unsalted lard and 4 beaten egg whites. Stir the mix well, take it off the fire and pour into a small jar. Leave in the fridge to tighten. Put some on gauze and put it on the wound.

 – To pull out pus of an open wound, put a slice of Turkish delight or tomato sprinkled with sugar. It has a very good effect.

–  To pull out pus: take a little fir resin, mix with a little sheep fat and heat in a vessel until melted. Put some of the solution on some gauze and bind it in the morning and in the evening. About the fifth day the pus disappears from the painful place.

– For cuts: make an extract of St John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum); leave it for 24 hourа in olive oil. Keep in a cool place in a well closed bottle. Cuts heal quickly if you cover them with it.

– If you have old purulent cuts or wounds: take one spoonful of honey, olive oil (or oil) and one egg white. Mix well with flour; the dough is applied on the cut/wound and bandaged.

– If you have old purulent cuts or wounds: make a hard dough of flour, rakia (brandy) and powdered sugar. Put it on the cut/wound and bandage.

–  If you have varicose wounds: put thirty grams of propolis on water bath. When it begins to melt, add 2 tea spoonfuls of ethyl alcohol. Then mix with them 100 g of bear or rabbit lard (or 50 g of lanolin and 50 g of Vaseline). You can have the same effect if you mix 30 g of propolis, melted on water bath, 100 g of butter and 100 g of beeswax; melt them together with the propolis. In both cases, after the mix cools, pour it into a small jar and keep it in the fridge. Apply the ointment on the wound.
