Make a 1st Aid Kit
with Essential Oils 

I always have a 1st aid kit on hand, even if it's just the one in the bathroom closet. Make a custom 1st aid kit with essential oils and Instant Liquid Soap. It's easy. Keep one in your car, have an extra for your camping gear, keep one at work.

Mine contains:

  • bar of soap-I prefer Unscented, but any of our scents will do
  • Waterless Hand Soap
  • Calendula Stik with Lavender Mint
  • a few LiXTiK Lip Balms: Lavender, Peppermint, and Clove Spice 
  • Bandaids
  • cotton swabs
  • cotton bandages
  • tweezers
  • a tourniquet - it's like a giant rubber band and I've never used it.
  • tiny flashlight
  • an ace bandage
  • a small glass jar of plain clean water
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Small bottle of hydrogen peroxide

Replace the pharmaceuticals 

Good Old fashioned remedies do the trick, when you have minor accidents. Cuts, scrapes, bruises. Andy skinned his knuckle, while fixing the tractor. He sprayed the Waterless Hand Soap, made from the Instant Liquid Soap, on it right away to keep out germs and bacteria, so he could keep on working. 

When he came in the house, he washed the scrape with bar soap and water, then sprayed some more Waterless Hand Soap on it. It closed right up, with no issues.

The Lavender Lip Balm is a very versatile 1st aid kit addition. Great for sunburn and mosquito repellant.

The Calendula Stik is gentle enough for babies diaper rash and potent enough for soothing a bee sting.

Lavender Essential Oil and Water is an excellent burn remedy. Read about it here.

Hydrogen Peroxide-to keep tetanus away. If you or someone in your party accidentally comes in contact with a rusty nail. Immediately clean the wound and squirt a generous amount of hydrogen peroxide into it.

Instant Liquid Soap is the perfect stovetop cleaner. It's gentle on your hands while being tough on built up, caked on grease. Click here to read How to Clean your Greasy Stovetop using zero waste natural soap methods

How to use your first aid kit

How to use your first aid kit made with Instant Liquid Soap and essential oils will become intuitive once you need it.

I slipped on a shell in the water, and sliced my thumb open on a camping trip in the West Everglades way out on one of the 10,000 keys in the Golf of Mexico. We canoed 9 miles out from Everglade City, which is a small fishing town at the bottom of West Coast Florida. I think the population is 70. One zero in that number.

We rented a canoe and a key as the camping spot. While canoeing out, 4 dolphins joined us. It was a magical experience. They swam and played with us for many miles through the mangroves. They would sit up on their tails, look you right in the eye and laugh. Then flip up and swim under the canoe.

After the 4-5 hour trip with many detours through the mangroves, and a lunch break, we arrived on our key. The first thing I did was remove my life jacket and walk around our tiny coast. Within minutes, I slipped on a shell and broke my fall with my hand, which sliced the inside of my thumb on the knuckle joint. It was a bloody mess and about a 1/2 inch long slice.

The 10,000 keys are an interesting place. The water is fresh water, and relatively shallow for quite a ways from the coast. Then suddenly it changes. It drops to I don't know how deep and turns to sort of salt water. You are out at sea. It's amazing and daunting in a canoe.

I rinsed my wound out with the everglades water. I then cleaned it with the best camping soap, fresh drinking water, and bandaged it. I changed the bandage 3-4 times a day. It healed nicely and I had a great trip. I have a small barely noticeable raised scar.

soap and water is a great anti microbial to clean out wounds quickly with a little sting.

THINK

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $6.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.84 per shower. 

For your next bar of soap, you spend $8.50. That seems like a lot of money, except it lasts for 8 weeks or 56 showers. That's $.15 cents per shower. F.Y.I.: One bar lasts me and Andy 6 weeks of daily showers - 84 showers.

Good soap is cost effective. More
