"Here's a wonderful remedy I teach all the kids who visit us at Heart's Ease Herb Shop & Gardens in Cambria, California," says Sharon Lovejoy, author of the children's classic Sunflower Houses. For minor cuts and scratches, wash the wound, then open an aloe vera leaf and squeeze some of the gel onto the hurt. Next, find a lamb's-ears (Stachys byzantina) leaf to wrap around the cut. Tie it in place with a piece of grass, Voila! An emergency Band-Aid! V
