Is your Holiday First Aid Kit packed full of costly pharmaceutical drugs, potions, lotions and creams. Too many toxic products that you and your family rarely use?

What many people don’t realise is that so many of the products we have in our holiday first aid kit or home first aid kit, can actually be replaced with just a few highly versatile and effective natural products and natural remedies. Not just natural but some organic remedies that are free from toxic and synthetic ingredients.

Here are a few carefully selected natural products that you can also use at home, safely and effectively. Highly versatile products that will take up very little room in your case or holdall.

Holiday First Aid Kit Essentials

Lavender Pure Essential Oil– is an extremely versatile oil, although pure essential oils should always usually be diluted, lavender can be applied directly on the skin to alleviate any burn. lavender can also be applied to bumps, bruises, bites, stings. It is one of the few essential oils that you can use for children. Lavender can help reduce a child’s temperature, soothing tantrums, teething and sleep problems. A small 10ml bottle is highly concentrated and goes a very long way so it takes up very little room in a case and a backpack. All reasons why I believe Pure Lavender Essential Oil should be part of every holiday first aid kit.

Tea Tree Pure Essential Oil is another extremely versatile essential oil. Tea Tree has powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal components which have been highly reputed as being a must in the first aid kit of the Australian army. It is particularly useful in the aid and treatment of fungal infections such as athletes foot, candida, thrush. Useful to clean wounds and infections, as well as spots, rashes, dandruff, it is often used as a lice repellent and I the treatment of bites. It can be used as a powerful cleaning ingredient, simply add to water to wipe down surfaces or utensils. Again a 10ml bottle is highly concentrated, so it takes up such a tiny space in a backpack or case.

Travel Remedy – this discrete 9 ml aroma ball can be put in a pocket or handbag and used for anxiety, stress, fatigue and jet lag. This is made with calming and anxiety-reducing ingredients that will uplift you, to cope with the stress, strain of travelling.
