Black Pepper for First-Aid

Wellness Tip: Most kitchens have this popular seasoning that also harbors unique health qualities. The next time you get a paper cut or a knife blade goes astray, grab the black pepper shaker. Cleanse the wound using cold water. Use soap and water if the event involved handling any type of raw meat product. Sprinkle the pepper on the wound and apply direct pressure. Watch in amazement as within minutes the bleeding stops. Simple black pepper also has pain relieving and anti-microbial characteristics. Unlike other possible remedies, black pepper will not sting.
