Health Hack: 4 Tips to Healing Cuts and Scrapes

August 10, 2015 2 min read

Unless you're living under a rock, It's inevitable that throughout your life you'll be subject to multiple cuts and scrapes. When you're a kid, it's a constant to your knees, when you're a teenager, sports might be the culprit, and as an adult? Not even the best of chopping skills can keep you from slicing open your finger now and again. But what do we do? Depending on the severity, sometimes we scream, sometimes we cry, and sometimes we just stare at the cat who just decided to make our leg into its own personal scratch pad. Ouch! We may then reach for the chemical-ridden treatments to ensure we steer clear of infection. We spend money to keep these bad boys in our medicine cabinets for when the inevitable strikes, but maybe there's a better way to treat our wounds without wondering what we're actually putting on them. Here are four natural remedies to try: 1. Honey honey It's believed by scientists that honey is medicinal. The antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals in this sweet treat can kill bacteria and fungi that infect wounds. 2. Tea Tree Oil tea tree oil There have been several studies that have found this oil to have antibacterial qualities helpful for healing up cuts and scrapes. 3. Peppermint Oil and Cinnamon This duo was found by the Scientists at the American Chemical Society to be great at beating bacteria, who packaged antimicrobial compounds from peppermint and cinnamon into small capsules to create a treatment. When applied to a volunteer's wound, the duo was found to kill  four different types of bacteria! 4. Lavender Oil lavender Known to keep away infections, this oil has also been found to alleviate pain. What natural remedies have you found to aid in the pain and healing of your cuts and scrapes?
