Rather than reaching for chemically laden medicines and products, use a natural first aid kit instead! After all, you encourage your family to use natural or organic products on their body and eat healthily, so it makes sense to provide them with natural first aid products to use too! The issue then becomes, what are the best natural products to add to your first aid kit? We know and we’ll share our essential first aid list products next.
What Supplies Do I Need in My Natural First Aid Kit?
A great first aid kit contains all the essential items needed to help a sick or injured person in the short-term. This can vary from helping put a broken arm in a sling, treating a bee sting or patching up a scraped knee. There are plenty of professionally designed first aid kits, but the problem is, they’re not tailored for individuals. They often contain professional medical supplies or medicines, which may never be used or wanted in the first place.
Consequently, the best decision is to make your own natural first aid kit with items you and your family would use! We’ve put together a list of essential supplies to get you started:
Sticking plasters and bandages – keep a selection of different sizes and types inside your kit. From large triangular ones to our Patch Aloe Vera Adhesive Strips for delicate skin.
Hand sanitiser – useful to have for cleaning your hands before and after dealing with body fluids.
Skin antiseptic balm – an antiseptic balm is ideal for putting onto little cuts, scrapes and itchy bites. We suggest the natural NZ made Kawakawa Ta Moko Balm.
Don’t forget to also add scissors, safety pins, gloves and your family’s essential medicines inside your kit too. If you’d like help compiling natural products for your first aid kit, let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
