(NaturalNews) No matter how careful we are, we all get an occasional cut from time to time, and sometimes those cuts can be bad ones. Though serious cuts may require prompt medical attention, there are many good natural ways to disinfect and help heal cuts as well as stop them from bleeding.

One of the very best remedies for cuts is raw honey. Raw honey has been used for over 2,000 years to prevent and heal infections. The sugar solutions of honey interact with water molecules and inhibit the growth of microorganisms. When wound exudates mix with honey, hydrogen peroxide is produced and released slowly via a glucose oxidase enzyme reaction. As a result, the hydrogen peroxide provides antibacterial activity but does not damage tissue. The best honey for healing is honey from the Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium).

Apply raw honey and cover with a bandage. With a small cut, the pain from the cut is gone after about 30 minutes, but leaving the honey on overnight is even better.

Colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic, germ killing, antiseptic that causes speedy healing and helps rebuild tissues. Apply the silver to cuts and scrapes. The application causes no more pain than plain water. For best results apply frequently and keep the cut area moist with the silver solution.

Two other excellent items for healing cuts and scrapes are lavender oil and tea tree oil. Both lavender and tea tree oils speed healing and kill germs. Apply lavender oil or tea tree oil to cuts and scrapes. Application usually causes no pain, and any existing pain from the wound should disappear quickly.

Hydrogen peroxide is good for cleaning cuts and has strong antiseptic qualities. It is also good for cuts inside the mouth. Mix 50/50 with water and apply to external cuts with a cotton swab or swish in the mouth for several seconds for cuts inside the mouth. Be sure to apply a topical remedy such as the ones listed here afterward for external cuts.

An effective home remedy for cuts can be made by mixing one part powdered echinacea, one part powdered slippery elm and one part powdered cranesbill. Add water to make a paste. Rub on the affected area and cover with a bandage or gauze.

The antioxidant power that makes vitamin E beneficial for your heart also speeds the healing of minor cuts. A good way to use vitamin E is to prick a vitamin E capsule with a sterile needle and squeeze the oil onto your cut at least three times a day. Cover more serious cuts with a bandage. Be sure to choose natural vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol), as it has more antioxidant power than synthetic vitamin E.

Two other items which can help heal cuts are garlic and bromelain. Garlic is a natural antibiotic which can be rubbed on minor cuts. Bromelain is a natural extract of the pineapple plant which has been found to speed healing tremendously when taken internally.

To stop cuts from bleeding, apply pressure to the cut to help the blood clot. An extremely effective way to stop bleeding is to sprinkle cayenne pepper liberally on the cut. Usually the bleeding will stop in only minutes.

Another natural item that can help stop bleeding is tea bags. The tannins in tea help the blood coagulate faster. Apply wet tea bags to the cut. Tea bags are especially good for cuts inside the mouth.

For deep cuts and wounds, clean and disinfect thoroughly and then pack with cayenne pepper or raw honey. For best results, use a combination of both.
