How to Make a Fig Poultice to Heal Wounds, Boils, Skin Infections and Much More

Fig poultice, how to make a fig poultice, figs for medicine


Figs are one of the most overlooked natural medicines and healing fruits in the world of plant medicine, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be put to good use.

Fig leaves and fruits have been used medicinally for thousands of years.

The trees typically grow between six to eight feet in containers, and can grow up to 10-15 feet in orchards or other outdoor areas including wild areas.

With Middle Eastern and western Asian roots, fig trees (from the Ficus carica genus) are considered to be warm-weather plants. It is possible to grow them in the north and Midwest as well.

They make for a satisfying and filling snack and offer a wide range of health benefits including support for healthy weight management, digestion and blood sugar levels.

Unlike most trees and plants, fig trees are pollinated by tiny wasps, in the family Agaonidae.

Figs typically ripen in late summer from August through September, and each average size fig tree produces about 180 to 360 fruits.


How to Make a Fig Poultice for Wounds, Boils, Skin Infections and More

Fig poultices represent a style of medicine that isn’t used as often in today’s day and age, but still can be incredibly effective for many conditions.

The following natural recipe is similar to what has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of ailments including wounds, boils and skin infections, as well as bruises, burns, and insect bites.

Fig poultices have previously been mentioned in the Bible as a natural, medicinal solution to boils, according to verse 38:21 in the Book of Isaiah.

The recipe has been used ever since, although not as often as it was during ancient times. It can still work wonders for skin conditions, as long as the right combination of ingredients is used (more on that later).
