7 natural remedies to stop nasal bleeding

Many of us don't know what to do to stop a nasal bleeding because few of us know what natural remedies can help us in these cases. 

That's why, in this article, we share the best strategies for stopping a nasal bleeding, whether you're at home, at work, or on the street. There are several factors that can cause nosebleeds. But what precisely triggers these nosebleeds is the rupture of the blood vessels in the nasal cavity.

 When the nose starts to run, the first thing to do is sit up straight, and then you should apply light pressure to the lower part of the nose (the softer part) using your index and finger. Then breathe slowly through your mouth and keep your head upright for a few minutes or until the bleeding stops.

 The following natural tips are other alternatives to help you stop nasal bleeding.

 1. Cold rags 

 Soak a cloth in as cold water as possible. You can also use ice cubes. Once it's done, apply the cloth to the back of your neck and forehead. The nervous system will constrict the blood vessels.

 You can also exert light pressure with the cloth on the soft part of the nose. The effect will be the same.

 Another option, the one recommended by our grandmothers and mothers, is to place an ice cube in the mouth. In this way, the blood vessels will compress more quickly and the bleeding will stop before reaching the nasal passages.

 2. Apple vinegar 

 With the astringent power of apple cider vinegar, you can repair the walls of the damaged blood vessel causing bleeding. Apple vinegar is a very effective natural healing agent.

 All you need to do is soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and place it gently against your nose. Do not apply pressure: leave on for five minutes.

 You can repeat the operation once if your nose continues to run.

 3. Onions 

 To stop nasal bleeding, this natural remedy can be of great help to you. The vapors from boiled onions can stop the bleeding.


 • 1 onion

 • 2 glasses of water (500 ml)


 • Cut the onion in half and cook in a saucepan filled with water.

 • Place your head over the pan and inhale slowly so that you inhale the vapors. Do this for a few minutes.

 • You can also use a juice extractor and apply a few drops of onion juice to the edge of the affected nasal cavity.

 4. Lemon 

 Lemon is a very effective astringent. It has many properties that help heal small wounds and prevent infections.

 If the bleeding is related to a blockage inside the nose, the lemon can be used to close the affected blood vessels.


 • 1 lemon for its juice

 • 1 cotton


 • Squeeze the lemon.

 • Soak a cotton ball in lemon.

 • Place the ball in the flowing hole without exerting pressure. It may burn a bit, but let sit for twenty minutes.

 5. Cayenne pepper 

 Cayenne pepper is an effective natural remedy for stopping nasal bleeding in just a few seconds.

 Be careful how much you use ... This is a strong product that could irritate your nose if you use too much.


 • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper

 • 1 glass of lukewarm water (250 ml)


 • Add the cayenne pepper to the glass of lukewarm water.

 • Drink this drink as if it were tea or soak a cotton ball in this liquid and place it in the affected nasal cavity for a few minutes.

 6. Salt water, an ally against nasal bleeding 

 You can buy saline solution at a drugstore or prepare it yourself.


 • 1 handful of coarse salt

 • 1 glass of lukewarm water (250 ml)


 • Add a handful of coarse salt to a cup of lukewarm water and mix well.

 • Using a dropper or similar tool, put a few drops of this liquid into the affected nasal cavity. The bleeding will stop very quickly, as the salt water is a powerful healing agent.

 7. Nettle tea 

 Nettle is a plant with many medicinal properties. We recommend that we always have this herb at home.


 • 1 glass of water (250 ml)

 • 3 tablespoons of dried nettle (45 g)


 • Add the dried nettle to a cup of boiling water and let it steep.

 • After allowing the mixture to stand for five minutes, strain the mixture.

 • Soak a cotton ball in this mixture and put it into the affected nasal cavity.
