Yarrow For Nosebleeds
Yarrow is essential in any survival kit. An excellent coagulant that is good to stop bleeding, even for nostrils. Yarrow contains astringent properties, which means they help stop bleeding by tightening and constricting blood vessels. They’re also anti-inflammatory, so when applied inside of your nose, they’ll soothe rather than burn. Cut yarrow leaves have been traditionally used as a natural remedy to help stop nosebleeds.
To use yarrow leaves for a nosebleed, you can crush fresh leaves to release their juices and apply the juice directly to the bleeding nostril. You can leave the fragments of leaves as it will help keep the blood from dripping while the oils in it tighten and cool your nostrils. It’s an excellent alternative if you don’t have any form of cotton lying around, or if you just want to smell something nice in a bad situation.
