Holistic Health Kit Essentials

Items to Put in Your Medicine Bag

By

Holistic Shopping: Preparing a basic holistic health kit is relatively easy. Use your common sense in deciding what items should be included in your kit. I've listed below my personal choices as suggestions for staple items. Add or substitute items as you see fit, simply allow your inner guidance to assist you. After you have your kit stocked with the essentials don't forget to take it along with you on trips and outings.

White Sage Wildcrafted Smudge Stick

Smoke from harvested and dried sage bundles can quickly clear a person's aura of toxicity and stagnant energies. For my smudging purposes I prefer using white sage that grows native in the US along the west coast because the odor it emits seems cleaner and crisper that other sage varieties.

Balance Energy Bars

Be sure to have some quick energy snacks tossed into your holistic health kit. Emotional stress can often partner a depleted or lowered energy due to hunger or lack of nutrients. Crunchy raw almonds, sesame seed and honey bars, and energy juices are my favorite choices.
