Updated: Sugar & Raw Honey
Sugar and honey are great for serious wounds.
Pack the wound with sugar, seal it with honey and wrap it. Sugar breaks down and blocks the growth of harmful bacteria while simultaneously promoting the growth of good bacteria that kills harmful bacteria (like the kind that cause gangrene and sepsis).
The honey will keep bacteria and other contaminants out. Honey never spoils, although it might crystallize. I like to always have a large jar of UNstrained raw honey in the house. We use it for insect bites,acne,facials, etc. Raw honey is rather solid, and has a layer at the top of bee pollen, wax, and the occasional bee leg or wing! :o)
