Grapevine Leaves – Home remedy for Snake Bites: If you do not have a grapevine growing in your yard, the wild Muscatine vines are also in the grape family and can be found in many wooded areas.  If you do not have either, purchase dried grapevine leaves at any natural food store.
To apply grapevine leaves, make a paste of 2 tablespoons of crushed leaves mixed with a little hot water and hold the paste on the snakebite area with gauze or a first aid sticking plaster. Grapevine leaves can be used fresh or dried, but fresh is better for snake bites. Available from Asian shops.
Health Warning: Seek immediate medical attention for all snake bites.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
