Prickly Pear Traditional Herbal Uses: 

Flowers of the prickly pear have been taken internally as medicine for male urinary discomforts by native American groups. Externally, mucilage from the leaves was used as an ointment. It is also beneficial to the digestive system. It is particularly useful in supporting digestion and maintaining blood sugar balance.  Pulp from the leaf is applied as a poultice to painful, swollen tarantula bites and is also used on the sore breasts of nursing mothers.
