With the start of warmer weather comes more activities out of doors. Whether you enjoy camping, hiking, gardening or grilling, be sure to have your first-aid kit stocked with Yunnan Baiyao.
Yunnan Baiyao, also known as the “miracle herb”, is best known for it’s ability to stop bleeding, speed up clotting and reduce inflammation. This powder was discovered by the west during the Vietnam war; as Vietcong soldiers wore vials of the powder around their necks. They used this incredible powder to stop bleeding from bullet or knife wounds; to prevent from bleeding out before getting medical attention.
Yunnan Baiyao has been widely used by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners to stop bleeding caused by traumatic injury, surgery, ulcers and more. This powder stops bleeding and simultaneously encourages normal circulation, removing pus and congealed blood, which can prevent flesh from being properly nourished. This helps the skin to regenerate with minimal scarring.
Other uses of Yunnan Baiyao include:
- Reduce bruising and swelling
- Flush out toxins from oozing sores
- Help with rashes caused by poison ivy or poison oak
- Stop bleeding gums
All bottles of the powder come with a little red pill to reduce shock caused by heavy bleeding. Consult your TCM practitioner on the proper use and application of Yunnan Baiyao.
