What Is In An Herbal First Aid Kit
First Aid Herbal Powder - stops bleeding while preventing infection and disinfecting wound (not pictured)
Wound Wash - spray and wipe with cotton pad to clean wound
Healing Salve - prevents and heals infection
Burn Spray - just what the name implies, spray at will on burns, I just keep spraying until pain subsides
Redmond clay - cuts, wounds, burns, bites (even snake), diarrhea, any stomach concerns, sores, etc.
lavender essential oil
bandages - all sizes
Everything in the basic kit plus -
Yarrow tincture (although I prefer the fresh plant in season) - stops bleeding, heals broken skin and wounds
Comfrey salve - fractured bones, bruises, wounds
Bone and Muscle salve - muscle and bone pain (not for use on broken skin)
Pain salve - relieves pain and inflammation
Raw Honey - healing wounds, skin fungus and bacteria, rashes, burns, any type of skin condition
Antibiotic Honey - God's antibiotic ointment, which can also be used for an internal antibiotic
Calendula Oil - cuts, wounds, skin issues
Cayenne tincture - heart attack, stroke, shock, hypothermia, trauma, etc.
Melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil - disinfectant, prevent and heal infection, bites, cuts, wounds, etc.
Helichrysum essential oil - staunch bleeding and bring broken skin together
This kit has everything above plus lots of bandages, plastic gloves, masks, triangle bandages, butterfly bandages, sutures, mini sewing kit, safety pins, hot and cold packs, popsicle sticks to use for splints, iodine, many sizes of sterile wrapped pads, super glue, a first aid booklet showing how to care for serious injuries in an emergency, and my whole arsenal of essential oils. I just purchased a commercial emergency first aid kit and then added a few of my own items to it. This kit doesn't get any use out of it, it just sits on the shelf next to the other emergency kits, just in case. I keep my arsenal of essential oils in the same closet so everything is in the same place in case of a grab and go emergency.

Lamb's Ear - this plant makes a great emergency bandage as well as nature's toilet paper or feminine pad (hey in an emergency if these items get destroyed or you run out, you'll be grateful for this fuzzy little friend).
