In 2013, my dad was bit by a brown recluse spider bite. I just started using natural remedies so I looked up some suggestions. I called my more experienced friend and asked if this would harm him or if I should apply the remedy directly to the wound. She said, "no it won't harm him and yes, give it a try."
So I did and HOLY COW, IT WORKED! This was my first REAL experience with natural remedies that WORKED! I couldn't believe it! Since then, I've studied and studied the benefits of plants. I believe in them so much that I'm studying to be a Naturopathic Doctor. YEAH! I really do believe in plant remedies and I love helping people get their AHA moments too.
But back to the spider bite. Below is the recipe I came up with. He let his bite go until it swelled up the size of a softball and bust open. IT WAS GANGRENE! I cleaned the wound with peroxide and we decided he needed to go to the Dr. This was on a Friday. When the wound was getting worse by the next Monday, he went to the Dr. again. Again, they lanced it, cleaned it and gave him more meds. By Wednesday, it was no better so he decided to use my recipe. He sprayed it numerous times a day. Within 7 days it was getting better! The doc was surprised along with my family. We were so relieved because a brown recluse spider bite can cause some serious damage. (If you'd like to see the gruesome pics, send me a message and I'll share them with you.)
