Most of us keep first aid kits handy for emergency use in our cars, campers, homes, etc. Have you considered adding a companion kit filled with natural remedies? Here are some essentials for filling a holistic health kit.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 1 hour

Here's How:

  1. Kit: Purchase or sew a heavy cotton drawstring bag to store your healing supplies inside. Keeping everything in a ready-to-go satchel is a must for those occasional impromptu outings.

  2. Trauma Help: flower essences (Bach Rescue Remedy or FES Five Flower Formula), green fluorite and/or clear quartz crystal

  3. Immune Booster: echinacea, vitamin C tablets

  4. Purification: sage wand for smudging (matchbook), tea tree oil

  5. Dehydration: bottled water, fruit juices

  6. Injuries: aloe vera gel (for burns, cuts, abrasions, etc.)

  7. Allergies: arsenicum album (homeopathic)

  8. Sprains: epsom salt (also great for soaking tired and sore feet after a day of traveling)

  9. Calming Agents: herbal teas (chamomile, lemon balm, ginger, peppermint, etc.), lavender essential oil.

  10. Energy Food Stuffs: almonds, granola bars, dried fruits, etc.

  11. Emergency Phone Numbers: Cell phone (or address book) with the contact phone numbers for your local hospital and health care providers.

Tips:

  1. Routinely replace any perishable items in your kit.
  2. Personalize your kit by including your own proven remedies.
