Natural Home Remedies and Eco-Friendly First Aid

Bluffton, SC

Everyone should have first aid kits handy in the house and in the vehicle, in case of minor accidents that require treatment. Organize all of your first-aid kit's components in a recyclable waterproof container or sealable bag so they remain moisture-free and unexposed to any foreign bacteria or other elements. Many of the items in a traditional first aid kit have equally effective natural counterparts. Organic disinfectants and cotton pads are a practical alternative to sanitizing wipes. Natural salves relieve pain and itching

Witch hazel is an effective antiseptic and can also be effective in treating sore muscles. Tea tree oil is also a natural antiseptic and can be used as an insect repellent or on insect bites to remedy itching. Honey is another first aid product, excellent for promoting healing when it's applied to cuts and minor wounds, then covered with a bandage. For centuries, aloe plants have been a source for burn balms to soothe pain and encourage healing. If you don't have an aloe vera plant at home, you can purchase aloe extracts at most pharmacies or grocery stores
