Injuries happen very often, especially in the kitchen where we have to deal with sharp tools. Preparing dinner in a hurry is an easy recipe for a cut finger. If we don’t have a band aid handy, we usually attach a paper towel or a tissue to the wound, but you must admit that it’s quite an inconvenient and ineffective temporary solution.
Blood still dripping down and is preventing any further steps from being taken. There is a way! Just open the kitchen cabinet door and pull out the cayenne pepper.
Native Americans have been familiar with this method for thousands of years and are well aware that the spice effectively stops bleeding. Just sprinkle the wound with pepper and wait a few seconds. An additional advantage will be disinfecting the damaged area (cayenne pepper also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial action).
Sprinkling spices on the injury is only possible when the skin is grazed. In the case of more serious injuries, it would be better to consult a doctor first. It’s also worth dissolve a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of lukewarm water and drinking the mixture. This new solution will accelerate the process of blood coagulation!
