I am so excited to share the makings of a great natural first aid kit with you today! Having basic first aid kits on hand is one of my favorite ways to feel #preparednotscared when the unexpected strikes. 

First aid kits can get extensive, and there is certainly a good reason for it! This is a basic everyday kit, with a nod to the natural and sustainable options available. It’s great for keeping around the house or in the car. For specific use, like camping, hiking, or white-water-rafting, for example, you may need to add items more fitting to each adventure. 

 

Stocking your Natural First Aid Kit

 

Active Skin Repair

We love this healing spray for everything from cuts to burns to bug bites. It’s a clinically tested, multifunction, naturally formulated, and itch-free spray that contains the same molecule that your white blood cells use to repair your skin. It’s a naturally antibacterial and non-antibiotic-resistance-creating way to help your skin heal.

 

Leefy PRANA

This small-batch organic turmeric and ginger supplement is a pain minimizing powerhouse. It helps to dramatically reduce inflammation, minimize injury swelling, heal headaches, and ease joint pain. The best part, it’s just real food…no icky stuff.

 

Wild & Pure Dry Wipes

Our soft, thick, and absorbent cotton wipes come in handy on all sorts of adventures. Whether stopping a nose bleed, wrapping a sliced finger, or washing off a fresh cut, they are a first aid must-have!

 

Patch Bamboo Bandages

Once your cut or scrape is nice and clean (thank you W&P dry wipes) and on its way to healing (thanks Active Skin Repair), it’s nice to have a sustainable way to keep out dirt. These bamboos bandages are a hypoallergenic, plastic-free, and compostable alternative for the traditional bandage. 

 

Arnica

I love to keep arnica on hand everywhere I go. Like Leefy PRANA, it helps with inflammation and Is particularly helpful for bumps, bruising, and joint pain. You can get arnica in consumable pellets, topical gel, or even this menthol sore muscle balm.

 

Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal uses its negative charge and porous nature to attract positively charged molecules, which include many toxins and gasses. The charcoal is not absorbed by the body — it simply binds to and helps eliminate toxins from the body. It’s great for tummy/digestive issues when taken internally, it can help pull toxins from the skin in a bath, and can even be made into a poultice to help with bites and stings. It’s available in both supplement and powder form.

 

Earth Mama Organics Skin and Scar Balm

While formulated to help the skin heal from cuts and scars, this balm is fantastic for everything from chapped cheeks to burns and beyond. Just rub a bit onto the affected area and let the herbal goodness get to work!

 

Dye-Free Benedryl

Allergic reactions can be scary and unexpected. Having a powerful way to reduce the symptoms of an allergic reaction until further medical attention is available can be a really great safety net. And I love the option of a dye-free version!

 

Adventure Extras

 

Earth Mama Organics Mineral Sunscreen

Sunscreen is one of those items that’s easy to forget on the fly and so nice to have on hand. Earth Mama makes my very favorite mineral sunscreen. It’s reef-friendly, free from dangerous synthetics, and filled with lots of moisturizing and protective natural ingredients. 

 

Wipe + Wash Concentrate

When out road-tripping, camping, or hiking, for example, this gently moisturizing soap concentrate can be added with water to clean cuts, wash hands, do dishes, or even launder clothing. It’s all-natural, made with organic oils and butters, and has just the right amount of cleaning power to do the job. 

 

TWEEZERS

From cactus needles to bee stings and splinters, having tweezers on hand is always a good idea!

 

Sting and Bite kit

While serious bites and stings warrant medical attention, a kit like this could be life-saving in a pinch…or bite….

 

Survival Extras

 

Solar Flashlight and Phone Charger

This handy tool uses solar power to give you a backup battery for phone charging and has a built-in flashlight, making it really useful for staying safe and connected, no matter which sticky situations you may find yourself in.

 

LIFEWATER PEN

While these water filtration straws don’t filter for everything, they will make water safely drinkable if you need fresh water and find yourself out of options. I’d suggest getting a multi-pack to have a backup in case one fails you — water is pretty important!

 

Powerful Lighter

In case you need fire ūüôā

 

Safety Multip Tool

Whether you need an axe, screwdriver, hammer, or knife, this little tool has it all!

 

Happy adventuring ?
