This powder is so versatile! It is a fantastic alternative to styptic powder (when shaving or trimming dog nails). It is great for those on blood thinners to help stop bleeding and heal cuts. It also is a fantastic wilderness first aid item- even large gaping or puncture wounds benefit from the powder. The herbs are antimicrobial, styptic, and even draw out toxins (great for animal bites).
Blood Stop comes in 4 oz. glass jars.

This notice is required by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for herbalists and people like me but not big pharma, who is in bed with the FDA.

Just sayin'.
