3 Plants with Hemostatic Effects

There are three main plants which help stop internal and uterine bleeding. These plants are: horsetail, lady’s mantle and shepherd’s purse.

When abnormal inter-menstrual bleeding happens, a visit to the gynecologist or endocrinologist is more than necessary, in order to settle the cause to that. According to the diagnosis, a natural treatment based on hemostatic plants can aid at stopping the bleeding significantly.

hemostatic plants


Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is considered one of the quickest remedies when it comes to blocking hemorrhages and internal bleeding. When it comes to nasal hemorrhages, it is recommended a horsetail infusion. In order to prepare that, you will need 200 ml horsetail tea and 1 tsp of salt. Equally effective is the natural juice extracted from the horsetail’s roots; you can drip a few drops into your nasal orifices.

When it comes to intensive menstrual bleeding or other internal hemorrhages, in order to prevent them, it is recommendable to take a concentrated dose of 1-2 tsp of horsetail powder (dried horsetail herb ground in the electric coffee grinder).  Continue the treatment by taking 1-2 teaspoons twice a day.

Not only does horsetail stop bleeding, but it also aims at helping your body recover after a post-hemorrhagic anemia.

Grind small quantities of the herb, in order to deter the oxidation of the horsetail powder.

Lady’s Mantle

Lady’s Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris), denominated as the plant of women, is used particularly in treating menstrual disturbances such as amenorrhea, hyper menorrhea, abdominal pain, headaches, nausea, dizziness and other symptoms associated to the menstrual cycle. Additionally, thanks to its hormonal properties, it aims at reducing the discomforting effects of menopausal symptoms.

In order to significantly reduce the uterine bleeding, drink 2-4 cups of lady’s mantle tea per day, for 10 days. In order to treat amenorrhea, the lady’s mantle concentration should be of 1 tablespoon of dried herb per cup.

Lady’s mantle is also recommended in curing cervicitis, uterine fibroids and urinary infections.

Shepherd’s Purse

Shepherd’s Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris) embodies natural hemostatic properties. It is highly effective during the menstrual cycle, as it aims at regulating the bleeding. It can be used for a range of internal bleeding: uterine, nasal, stomach or intestinal. It is recommended to drink 2-3 cups of tea a day.


Before considering any of the above mentioned natural treatments, make sure to inform yourselves about the possibility of side effects these remedies could present when taken simultaneously with other conventional medications. Such overlapping could actually worsen your state of health. Be sure to ask your doctor about this issue and read more attentively the prospect to the medications you are taking.

Keep in mind that horsetail shouldn’t be consumed for more than 6 weeks, because of the high amount of silicon. A treatment usually lasts for 3 months, but a pause of 1 month is required during that amount of time. You should not take this treatment while taking vitamin B1. Horsetail is also contraindicated for pregnant and lactating women.

Lady’s Mantle is contraindicated for people suffering from severe constipation. Also, it shouldn’t overlap with iron medications.

Shepherd’s Purse is contraindicated in cardiovascular and thyroid affections.
