Nosebleeds (Epistaxis) are more common with children.
The more common type is an anterior (towards the
front) nosebleed usually involving blood vessels on the
cartilage between the left and right nostrils (the septum).
The bleeding can result from a blow to the nose, picking,
vigorous blowing, or other irritation to the interior of the
nostrils such as from a cold or allergies.
A less common type of nosebleed is the posterior
nosebleed that originates from an artery in the back of the
nose. This may occur with those of advanced age and is
a more difficult nosebleed to control and more serious.
It may result from other health issues such as hardening of
the arteries and high blood pressure.
To control an anterior nosebleed pressure can be applied
with the fingers to each side of the nostrils at the
pressure points near the middle of the nose. Using the
coagulating properties of some essential oils as described
on the Protocol tab can assist this. If the bleeding
continues for more than 15 to 20 minutes seek professional

Experiences and Testimonials of others

Helichrysum stops bleeding. How do you apply it?
Pat – Apply Helichrysum for nosebleeds

Rebecca - My 3 year old had a nosebleed
yesterday, I rubbed Helichrysum on the top of his nose and
it stopped the bleeding instantly.
Rob – I know a few people that use
Helichrysum for frequent nose bleeds. Most
successfully, they apply 2-3 drops on a rolled up tissue and
insert the tissue in the nostril. Bleeding usually
stops quickly. If you need to, apply more drops before
Helichrysum has no constituents or properties that will
interfere with blood thinning medication.
