Prickly Pear Cactus
I am writing a piece on the uses of the Prickly Pear Cactus in regard to
its medicinal qualities. As a poultice, reduction of cholestoral,
regulation of insulin and other uses. Most interestingly I have heard
that it used as an insect reppellent (in Africa) and more recently in the U.S.
Can anybody assist me in regard particularly to the "first aid" qualities
and insect repellancy.
