SPHAGNUM MOSS

Sphagnum moss can be found throughout Britain, on boggy areas and hill, also wooded areas and the coast, this has been the outdoors man and soldiers friend for centuries.

It is like a sponge and can hold up to 20 times its dry weight in water, which can be drunk!

It also can and has been used very effectively for first aid, it is very absorptive and extremely acidic, inhibiting the growth of bacteria and fungal infections, making it a very good dressing, as recently as World War 2 it was used by soldiers for just this purpose!

It has also been used very effectively as a sanitary towel believe it or not!!
