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. Maiking a custom 1st aid kit is easy. 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 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.

The 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.

Soap and water kill germs, while cleaning you

Good bar soap is an essential as a whole body soap wash. It's economical, luxurious, and effective. When selecting a bar of soap, look for simple ingredients with pleasing essential oil aromas and lots of sudsy lather. Sudsing all the way down to a sliver, over 3-4 months of daily use, is key in good bar soap. Try Ithaca Soap

How much soap money does a shower cost you?

Let's say you spend $3.00 on a bar of soap and it lasts for 7 days of showers. That's $.43 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
