If you get a bloody nose or your baby (child) is bleeding from a minor mouth injury or a head injury (from falling) just apply ACV or white vinegar to a clean cotton ball and the bleeding stops. It might sting but only for a very short time. My husband was clipping his nose hairs with tiny scissors and by mistake, nipped the skin which bled profusely for 30 to 40 minutes. He called me at work, I told him about the vinegar & cotton ball. He called back 5 min. Later and said the bleeding stopped he was so thankful & couldn't believe it!
A friend advised me ACV was good for stopping bleeding. I have been having too many nose bleeds lately at inopportune times so on one occasion I took a tsp of ACV and the bleeding stopped almost immediately but will not be taking it neat again!! Just today I had another nose bleed and took a tsp of ACV in a small glass of fruit juice. The effect was not so immediate but the bleeding stopped within a minute or two. I would like to know why it has this effect?

One of my teenage sons was getting frequent nose bleeds. Sometimes daily and they seemed to come on for no reason. I encouraged him to start taking a spoonful of blackstrap molasses each day. He is really good about taking stuff if he thinks it will help. For months he has been taking Blackstrap Molasses almost daily. We realized yesterday that he does not get nosebleeds anymore. Can we be positive this is why? Well, no, but I think it is quite likely.
This son knows the benefits of blackstrap. He feeds it to his goats when they are low on iron. They also drink more water when he puts blackstrap in it, which is great in the summer to keep them well hydrated. We even saw it restore the color of the coat of an older goat when taken over a number of weeks.

FOR NOSE BLEEDS. I HAVE FOUND THAT IF YOU TAKE A SMALL PIECE OF A BROWN PAPER BAG, ROLL IT UP AND STICK IT UNDER THE ROOT OF YOUR MOUTH (UNDER THE FRONT GUM OF YOUR MOUTH) IT WILL STOP THE NOSE BLEED.

I started having a light nosebleed last spring, I-4 times. It subsided and began this past March 2015, but got heavier. My PC finally referred me to "ENT" after I pressed the issue of something being wrong. I'm not a smoker or use alcohol, etc. My intake has been healthy for years, this shouldn't be happening. I visited an "ENT" (ear, nose, throat) physician today. The visit was much needed; the doctor found that I had one enlarged blood-vessel in my right nostril. The doctor performed treatment, then sealed/capped the vessel. Dryness causes the vessel to enlarge.
There are many causes of nosebleeds, don't diagnose your condition! If anyone suffers with this agitation, please, get to an "ENT" clinic or inform your PC so he/she can refer you.
Pay attention to your body changes. Don't delay your health!
God Bless :)
Hi guys, My sinuses were thinned out as a child from years on the ventilin mask and my nose used to bleed heavily all the time until I was a teenager. You can squeeze your nostril for a while and roll some kleenex and put it in your nose and wait for it to stop. Also what really worked for me is getting my nose cauterized by the doctor. I wish I had gotten that earlier. Now my nose doesnt bleed anymore, I might get a little bit of blood in my snot but thats it. You guys should try it it really works. My nose went from bleeding once a week or so to 0-1 times a year.
Every winter for several years now, I would get awful nosebleeds, and they were very difficult to stop. Sometimes they would stop only to start again within a few minutes. After reading about cayenne on this site, I began to take it in a capsule, maybe three times a day. After the very first capsule, the nosebleeds never returned. These days I use 1/2 tsp of cayenne in warm water to make a tea. It's easier on my stomach and I feel its effects faster.
Every winter since I was little I would get bloody noses because of the dry indoor air. Last winter it was bad. I was having at least one a day no matter how much I ran my humidifier. I came across this site and read about Cayenne Pepper helping with this problem. The day I started taking Cayenne Pepper pills was the last time I had a bloody nose! (It has been almost a year now) I take one in the morning with my vitamins and dont worry about my nose exploding every time I sneeze. Try it, you wont be disappointed!
I once got a really bad bloody nose when I was a kid, I'd tip my head back to try and stop it but it would start running down my throat. I thought I was gonna bleed to death. My mom started giving me dropperfuls of liquid cayenne and I was so worried about my nose that I didn't notice it was even hot so once I noticed it was helping I kept asking for more. The bleeding stopped within a few seconds. I couldn't blow my nose for a few days after for fear I'd break a blood vein but Cayenne works to stop bleeding
Just used the coconut oil for my son's dry sinuses (which caused frequent bloody noses). It was very soothing and helpful, much more than saline solution.
My nose bleeds at least 3 times a month. A wet, cold towel or a bottle of cold water at the back of the neck could really stop nose bleed. Been using them for years!
COLD WASHCLOTH for NOSEBLEEDS:
I have put a cold washcloth on my neck and upper spine and face, the bleeding stopped in 30 seconds along with direct pressure at the side of the nose. I was very surprised.
I was told by a doctor that dropping a set of keys down the back of your shirt will stop a nosebleed. Supposedly the cold or sensation causes blood vessel constriction. This is where I got the idea for the washcloth.
As a small boy, I had frequent nosebleeds most commonly in the mountains or in dry deserts. As time progressed, so did my nosebleeds. I am 55 and even in San Francisco at sea level with 50% humidity I am still getting them. I was tested and confirmed to have a low platelet count.
My biggest frustration is when the bleeds occurred. I had no control: at a business presentation, friends party, or the beginning of a family trip. Once I get them I would pinch to get it stopped and rest quietly for the next few days with no activity. I would go to the Ear / nose / throat doctor 10 times a year and have had at least 20 different bleeders cauterized.
The good news, is, with trial and error over the last 4 years, I have found a home remedy, safe, and easy to manage.
Initially I assumed my trigger point was humidity. So, for years I tried ointments and saline sprays, but I still got the nosebleeds. I tried drinking more water 80 ounces a day (I am a 165 lb person) to be better hydrated, not much help.
One day I had a big client meeting and worried as my sinus felt dry. I decided to look at what my doctor sees in my nose. I purchased a small 3” convex compact mirror that has 15 x magnification and a high intensity pen light. This was unbelievable. It was the beginning to finding the solution. You may need to get a nose hair trimmer to see more clearly. You now can at any time, (I do this every morning before work) take a look in the mirror and see if there is a possible nose bleed that may occur in the next several hours .
You can determine if there are dry scabs which make break away to cause a bleed; you can also see the healthy tissue. I was now able to decide my activity for the day based on how the tissues look. Pink and moist : excellent, not to worry. Scabs evident and dry: trouble .
With the mirror and flashlight, I could now experiment. I tried the saline spray, ointments, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, etc. Nothing really made a difference. Red wine the night before, you bet, lots of scabs in the morning. Interestingly, the scabs seemed to be more evident in the early morning and as the day progressed, the scabs got smaller.
Randomly one day I had severely bloody spots in my nose. I drank an 18 ounce Gatorade, and about 1 hour later and I looked into my nose again, the bloody spots were GONE! All these years I assumed it was the outside environment; at the end of the day, it was internal hydration. Gatorade has sugar, salt, potassium, magnesium which give you electrolytes and somehow it was able to hydrate me unlike plain water.
Because of all the sugar in Gatorade, I came across a product and I swear by them. They are small tablets that come in a sleeve which I keep in my overnight bag (along with an extra mirror and pen light). They are ½ the cost of Gatorade and they have NO SUGAR. I play squash, swim, and run regularly, and these tablets are fantastic energy as well. The electrolytes make a significance in my endurance.
Now, Anytime I see scabs in my mirror, I take a tablet in a 12 ounce of water and in one hour, I am safe to play in any activity, even at elevations, or dry deserts.
So, to finish this story with a happy ending, it has been over 2 years, and I have not had a single nose bleed. Anytime I am flying longer than 3 hours, hiking in the mountains, I take my electrolyte tablet.
I wish you all the best and I hope this story can help you reduce or even eliminate your nosebleeds too.
On a FULL stomach - finely cut up a clove of garlic (raw is the only way I do this) swallow it down. (I put it on a spoon and add a bit of syrup on top & drink it down with milk. That Ends my nosebleeds.
Note: If your stomach starts to burn then you did not have enough food in to be a sponge from the acid in the garlic. So then just quickly eat bread and sip milk till it goes away. (I have done this before! ) milk coats the stomach and the bread is a great sponge.

This evening my three year old was playing on a bed and tumbled off and hit his face on a chair. He had a terrible nosebleed from it. It may be the worst nosebleed I have ever seen. He had blood coming out of his nose and his mouth. I held him and wiped up blood with clean clothes (trying to stay very calm, since I know my reaction will affect him, all the while wondering if I should take him to Urgent Care or the ER...little ones bleeding can be scary! ) The blood just kept coming. I thought of cayenne pepper, but knew that would really upset him. The Lord kindly reminded me of Geranium Essential Oil. My daughter went to get that, and the Lavender Essential Oil. I put a drop of Geranium Essential Oil on his forehead with my finger and also wiped what was left on his nose and cheeks. I put another drop on my finger and held it to the roof of his mouth. In less than 60 seconds, the bleeding stopped. It was amazing. I was so grateful! I put some Lavender on him also as it is soothing.
I was still watching him carefully. I tried to put ice on his forehead/nose, but he didn't like that. He really wanted me to take off his bloody clothes. So I changed him and gave him some smoothie I had in the fridge. (He said his mouth hurt...I guess from the oil. I wouldn't normally use it straight or internally but was wanting to act quickly. I don't think it burned him but I think he didn't like the taste.) In 15 minutes he was riding his scooter on the porch.
At bedtime he has a couple of small red marks on his nose, but no bruise. Geranium is good to prevent bruises and goose eggs, too. I need to put some in my purse. I never want to be without geranium!
Had he acted oddly during the evening or had excessive swallowing, I would have taken him in to be seen, but he seemed quite himself. (Excessive swallowing can be an indication that there is still bleeding happening.)
Yea for Geranium Essential Oil!
