an alternate first aid kit

Our travelling first aid kit

I have had multiple requests lately to share details of what I stock in our family health care/first aid kit

so below you will find a comprehensive list of many natural products we reach for first

it is often changing as I discover new {or sometimes very old} approaches to health care

wattle blossoms

 

Homeopathic kit

Ainsworths 42 essential remedies (mini kit in a hard case with a comprehensive book)

Essential oils

Preferred organic and Australian where possible, The Oil Garden and Warbotanicals are favorites

{i travel with over 30 essential oils, below are the most oft used, i must get them a lovely case to store them in one day.}

I frequently refer to The Fragrant Pharmacy for guidance on essential oil usage

Lavender

Eaucalyptus

Tea tree

Chamomile

Arnica

Calendula

Peppermint

geranium

Dottera essential oil blends

Therapeutic quality oils so some can be ingested, follow instructions only

Breathe {clears congestion, soothes chest complaints, clears the head}

Past tense {de stress, clear the mind, perspective}
