Banned for cabbage is better choice, no kidding, it actually does have antiseptic properties. Take fresh, raw cabbage leave, crush it a little to start releasing its fluid and use as compress for aching joints, scratches, bruises, small infections, corns and such. Fasten with normal bandage. Traditionally prepared sour cabbage is antiseptic too, believe it or not, especially good for bleeding gums or wounds after removing teeth, because it's both salty and naturally antiseptic.
