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.


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