INSTRUCTIONS: After cleansing the would with water crush a yarrow leaf and apply to the wound. It has antiseptic porperties and will stop the bleeding almost immedieately. It will heal much faster as well. You can leave it on for 10-15 minutes or wrap it in the bandage. If you do wrap it in the bandage it may stick to the wound but you can getit off with water or softening it with neosporin.

A couple other home fixes for you;

for cuts/bleeding the guy said electrical tape which I also have found to work, but duct tape works better, and with both he's right, it's part the adhesive but they both keep the cut pulled close better than a bandaid.

another simple quick fix for cuts/bleeding is super glue

Ingredients = Glass
Instructions = since glass is electronegatively charged surface, it will activate factor XII, which is part of the intrinsic pathway in the clotting process in your blood vessels. By putting glass (or any wettable [electrostatically charged] surface such as collagen)on your cut, it starts the clotting pathway as so essentially coagulation. i learnt this in my zoology class.

Also apply pressure at the top of leg pressing the artery to the bone with your hand below your wrist, do not use your fingers. elevate legs 8-12 inches from the ground so that blood will flow away from the wound and prevent more bleeding. You should always call for help if someone has a major wound such as a cut artery. A person can bleed to death within 1 minute if an artery is bleeding.

betty croft

Ingredients: Spider (cob) webs

Instructions: To stop a minor cut from bleeding, ball up some spider web, the more the better. Place it directly on the open wound, cover with a bandade till the next day. When removing it (it will harden) run
warm water over it till it softens. This works great on fingers that
have been cut by broken glass while doing the dishes!
