REMEDIES LISTED IN CAPITOL LETTERS REPRESENT MORE FREQUENTLY INDICATED REMEDIES
CALENDULA: This remedy is best suited for clean cuts with little or no infection. Use a tincture (slightly diluted with water), gel, spray, or ointment and apply directly to the wound. Do not use Calendula externally on deep cuts because it has such rapid healing capabilities that it will tend to close up a deep cut before it is adequately healed underneath.
HYPERICUM: This remedy is for infected or deep cuts; apply Hypericum spray or slightly diluted tincture externally. If there is much shooting or cutting pain, take Hypericum 6 or 30 internally.
STAPHYSAGRIA: When children get a deep clean cut or a stabbing wound, consider giving this medicine internally.
