This article’s title may sound like a dangerous assertion. You might even ask yourself if its clickbait. The truth is you can grow one powerful little plant that doubles as a bandage that is absorbent and antibacterial.
How To Grow Antibacterial Bandages At Home — The entire plant is an alternative medicinal plant, antibacterial, antipyretic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, carminative, diuretic, febrifugal, hypotensive, stomachic, styptic, tonic, vermifuge and vulnerary. An infusion of cold water from freshly chopped or dried and ground leaves allows a refreshing drink, while a slow infusion of the herb can be used as a topical eye wash for sties and pinkeye.
There is a lot of thought in your backyard about what’s going on. Most of us are space- and budget-limited so it has a lot to do with what we plant every year. Because of traditional planting we miss out on lots of opportunities.
The plant that you want to grow is named lamb’s ear. You have seen it before. It’s the plant with the long soft leaves.
Lamb’s ear is a perennial. That means that you are going to get this perennial back year over year.
The plant has many practical uses but the safest is to use it as a bandage that can be rolled and used to remove the blood and puss. Such bandages will not protect a serious wound. It’s not a strong clot but it will certainly help if all the bandages run out.
The idea that we can grow plants for personal hygiene and first aid is nothing new. Its something we have been doing for thousands of years.
The Indians didn’t have access to bandaids. They had to use the plants that were around them.
If you want to be more self-sufficient, you will learn a lot from past civilizations and how first aid and personal hygiene tools have evolved. You can do likewise in your backyard.
Lamb’s ear will require lots of sunlight, and you will need to pay attention to the center of the plant as it can begin to die in the center and that will affect the whole plant.
