Minor cuts and grazes will usually heal unaided, as long as the wound is being kept clean. Herbs with antiseptic properties, such as marigold (calendula) or lavender, infused for 5-10 minutes and allowed to cool, make excellent washes and compresses for minor wounds. Both calendula and lavender ointments can be found ready-prepared in most pharmacies and health shops.
If the wound is painful, it can be dusted with powdered cloves, which are a powerful painkiller. Cloves are also antiseptic and will keep the wound from becoming infected.
