Natural First Aid Kit

Permalink

Below I've listed our favourite Natural Products we have in our 
Home First Aid Kit.
I hope you can find use for some of them if not all of them in yours...

ActivatedCharcoal



Activated Charcoal is not the charcoal you chuck on the BBQ.  You will find it at the health food stores or with us at Naturalus.  It is a natural detoxifier helps in cases of poisoning, diarrhoea, intestinal flu. It also helps bring relief to insect bites, absorbing the offending poison and reducing the swelling.  Apply by wetting the powder until a paste formed and apply to the itchy, bitten, stung area.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Clay is a wonderful cleanser, used as a Wound Powder it can help to draw out toxins and heal wounds.  Sprinkle over cleaned open wounds/cuts to dry & heal.  It is also great to soothe insect bites if you mix 1part with 1part Witchazel and a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil, and apply to the affected area.



Cayenne Powder

Cayenne is fantastic for stopping wounds from bleeding.  First wash with either a Saline Solution or Hyrogen Peroxide 3% and then dry and apply Cayenne Powder over the wound.  Reports have also shown how good Cayenne Pepper is for those having a heart attack:  Mix a teaspoon of Cayenne Powder in a small amount of water (no more than a cup) and pour down their throat.  Within minutes they should be up and about!
(Always call for medical assistance first hand)

Apple Cider Vinegar



Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is fantastic to use for those who have stayed out too long in the sun and need relief from Sunburn.  AS well as this if you are stung by Wasps or bitten by other insects, walked through stinging nettle, poison ivy you can put equal amounts of ACV and water and wipe over the affected areas.  It is also very good for relieving diarrhoea, put 1-2 tablespoons in a glass of water and sip away.  (Probiotics are very good in this situation too!) & whenever you're feeling nauseous make the same mix up as for diarrhoea and sip away.

Aluminium Free Baking Soda

Baking Soda is fantastic to use for relieving Bee Stings but did you know it is also very useful for relieving Heat Rash, Sunburn and even Insect Bites.  Put 1/2 a cup of Aluminium Free Baking Soda in a warm/tepid bath and soak for at least 15 minutes, it brings amazing relief!


Hydrogen Peroxide &/or Saline Solution



Hydrogen Peroxide 3% Solution &/or Saline Solution are fantastic to have in the first aid kit.  They can be used to wash wounds and disinfect cuts, scrapes as well as lessen infection from old wounds such as piercings.

Honey


Honey is a fantastic healer and can be put on top of any wound to help heal.  Honey naturally forms hydrogen peroxide which is a natural disinfectant/antiseptic.  Honey helps to bring relief to burns (after 15 minutes of cold water applied) and it is also very good to apply to any abscesses to help draw out infection while healing at the same time.  

Lavender, Manuka & Tea Tree Essential Oil

For those who love to use Essential Oils, these are our favourites for the First Aid Kit.  Lavender is particularly amazing for relief of burns (after 15 minutes of cold water applied), and Tea Tree, Manuka along with Lavender are amazing to use for preventing all manner of infection and are great to apply direct or dilute in cooled boiled water to wash wounds.


Rescue Remedy

Rescue Remedy is fantastic to have on hand not only to settle the nerves of the injured, but to help you stay calm while administering your Natural Healing Remedies.  Suitable for all ages, and animals too!

Naturalus Wound Balm

A fantastic blend of healing Calendula Oil combined with Manuka Extract along with Frankincense & Lavender Essential Oils.  Will help to heal all scrapes, cuts, wounds as well as bring relief to sunburn (after cold water applied for at least 15 minutes), insect bites and itchiness!

Naturalus Cayenne Plus Cream

For all those bruises, aches and pains we'd recommend a bath with the Essential Oils talked about prior, followed by a smothering of Naturalus Cayenne Plus  Cream. Full of Cayenne, Arnica & St Johns Wort Oils along with Aloe Vera & MSM bringing relief to aching muscles, bruises and nerve pain!
