Essential oils can help you stop bleeding in several ways. It can be your own bleeding or someone else’s but if you have essential oils on hand, they come in handy in many situations. I believe everyone should have a stock of essential oils in their home to take care of the everyday health needs that don’t necessarily need a doctor’s care.

To take care of bleeding from an open wound, press the wound with a compress to which you have added 1 drop of geranium, 1 drop of lemon, and 1 drop of chamomile.

To stop a nose bleed, put 3 drops of lemon and 1 drop of lavender on a tissue. Lie flat on your back and pinch your nostrils, then inhale from the tissue. Continue to pinch the nostrils while exhaling.

For bleeding gums, you can make your own mouthwash by adding 2 drops lemon, 1 drop lavender and 2 drops eucalyptus to  1/2 cup of warm water. Gargle with the mixture and swish it around your mouth, then spit it out. To make this mixture even more potent, you can dilute the essential oils in 1 teaspoon of brandy before you add them to the warm water. Do not swallow this mixture, it is not a cocktail!
