Hemorrhoid Salve

by Hope W.

May 2006

Had to let you know that I recently ordered herbs and they arrived in RECORD time. What great service! I LOVE having these herbs in the house! I use them all the time and had to share my "recipe" for hemorrhoid salve.

I chop off a section of aloe vera from my plant and scrape out the inside. Then mash with a fork in a bowl. Add some cut Nettle and some Slippery Elm bark powder. It will be a great consistency for spreading on the offending hemorrhoid. Also, I have rolled this mixture into small cylinder shapes (shaped like your small finger - only smaller). Freeze until firm. Then when a hemorrhoid pops up, get your salve out of the freezer and apply. Cool and comforting. Swelling goes down in about 20 minutes.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
