Add a pill bottle full of cayenne pepper to your prospecting survival kit. It just might save your life.
Using Cayenne For Wounds It’s simple really. Just pour the cayenne pepper powder directly onto the cut or laceration. There is no modification whatsoever required. Be liberal with it. The cayenne can also be dissolved in a bit of water and used to saturate a piece of gauze that is placed over the wound area. Alternately you can use a cayenne tincture and rub it into the wound with a clean cloth or cotton ball. Cayenne tincture would be used for smaller cuts and scrapes. If it is large wound and bleeding profusely, just start dumping cayenne powder directly on it. Internal Application Cayenne pepper can also be taken orally. Put a teaspoon of cayenne in one cup of water and drink it down. It is not necessary to wait for it to dissolve completely. Warm water works best, but cold water will work too. For those who don’t want their mouth on fire, dissolving a teaspoon of cayenne into the juice of half a lemon and a dash of maple syrup will take the edge off.
