Bite Paste...

RetroRaeJanuary 21, 2014

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?

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.

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