Hemostatic & Anti-Hemorrhagic Remedy
A blend of essential oils & alcohol:
Ceylon Cinnamon Bark oil (Cinnamomum (zeylanicum) verum)
Erigeron flowering herb oil (Erigeron canadensis) 6.25%
Grain Alcohol, USP 87.50%
This is the original formula developed
by the famous Eclectic physician, Finley Ellingwood, M.D., which he
stated was "an extemporaneous prescription, which is (my) first
resort in passive hemorrhage.”
& Uses: Dr. Ellingwood states in his American Materia
Medica, Therapeutics & Pharmacognosy, that Cinnamon “...is
a hæmostatic of much power and positively reliable in all passive
hemorrhages,” and that “...it acts in perfect harmony
with Erigeron...” He goes on to say that it “...works
to a better advantage in hemorrhage due to atonic conditions of
the non-gravid womb, or where there is muscular relaxation, or
a general flaccid state of the womb after delivery.”
“It certainly restores tone to the uterine muscular structure
and induces tonic contraction. In some cases, during labor, it promotes
the normal labor pains and materially increases uterine contraction,
and prevents postpartum hemorrhage.”
Dr. Ellingwood states that he used this compound “...in all the
uterine conditions named above, in extreme pulmonary hemorrhage, persistent
hæmoptysis, and in gastric and intestinal hemorrhages of alcoholics.
In all forms of hæmaturia, especially in renal tuberculosis, and
in habitual nasal hemorrhage, in many cases, a single dose accomplishes
Dose: Dr. Ellingwood states, “It is not advisable
to combine it with the usual astringents, as ergot, geranium or epilobium...”
For dosage he states, “Ten to 30 drops on sugar, or dropped at
once on water, will control nearly every controllable passive hemorrhage.”
Cautions: Severe bleeding can be life threatening.
In all cases of severe bleeding or hemorrhaging, immediately seek qualified
emergency medical care!
