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.
Time Required: 1 hour
- 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.

- Immune Booster: echinacea, vitamin C tablets
- Purification: sage wand for smudging (matchbook), tea tree oil
- Dehydration: bottled water, fruit juices
- Injuries: aloe vera gel (for burns, cuts, abrasions, etc.)
