Herbs how to make a plaster/poultice

How to make a Poultice or Plaster

Poultices, are also called plasters, they  can  be made by pouring a some boiling water over herbs and steeping them for a few minutes to release their healing/medicinal properties.

 Strain the warm/hot herbs, be careful not to burn yourself fold them or wrap them them in gauze or thin cloth and place them on the affected area. 

Powdered herbs do not need to be steeped. Simply make the powder into a paste with hot water and apply in a cloth.

 We use poultices/plasters for 
Diaper rash

I love making a plantain/comfrey poultice it always stops bleeding instantly and reduces pain
