I love old wives cures. During desperate times solutions have come down through generations using the most interesting methods to cure common problems with items already in your home.
A friend and I were chatting in my kitchen and without thinking I started scratching my arm and scratched a scab off. When we realized what I had done my friend said, “Put some black pepper on it, the bleeding will stop.” So, I did, and it worked.
At first I thought this is going to sting, to my surprise it didn't sting at all. I covered the break in the skin with the pepper, patted the pepper down and let the balance fall in the sink. Later when I took my shower the damaged area was sealed and healing normally.
She said, “This method won’t work in a gun fight but for daily around the home cuts and scrapes it works great.”
