Drawing Out Infection

MY GRANDMOTHER'S ALUM POLTICE WORKED WONDERS FOR AN INFECTED FINGER, OR ANY SKIN INFECTION. HER RECIPE WAS:

HEAT 1/4 CUP OF MILK, AND ADD ABOUT 1 TEASPOON OF POWDERED ALUM AND STIR. THE ALUM WIL MAKE THE MILK FORM A SOFT CURD. BIND THE MOIST CURD ON THE SORE SPOT AND LEAVE OVERNIGHT OR UNTIL THE INFECTION HAS COME TO A HEAD.

milk and vinegar
by: Anonymous

My mother did the same as the milk and alum poultice but used vinegar to curdle the milk (heated to a warmth you could still hold a finger in, inside glass. NO metal). She is dutch. I love to use organic milk and organic apple cider vinegar with "mother" but it works with plain ingredients as well. I was bitten quite severly by a wild farm cat and despite using iodine, it did puff up. The poultice kept the swelling down as long as i had it on. Later i just opened it up a bit and squeezed the remaining puss out. As other readers stated i did not like the idea of using antibiotics unless it was absolutely necessary. I have had arthritic reactions to antibiotics and i am only 32. These painful stiff hands and feet reactions subsided after numerous trips to the chiropractor and later a cleanse.

Olive Oil and Plantain Weed
by: Tina Watson

I've made an oil with Plantain Weed and Olive Oil, that absolutely works for everything! Plantain is a drawing weed. It will draw anything from the body that shouldn't be there. Mosquito bites, bee stings, cuts, cat scratches, poison ivy/oak, swelling, redness, itching, pain, infection, gout, and EVEN MRSA!
These are just a few of the things I've used it for or made it for somebody who used it for these things!
