First Aid Naturally {Soothing}

First Aid Naturally {Soothing}

If your medicine chest has traditionally consisted of aspirin, ibuprofen, anti-itch cream, etc.,  let me introduce you to some natural alternatives.

Last week we discussed relieving headaches and pains naturally. Today our focus will be on soothing.  

If you typically turn to hydro-cortisone, petroleum products, or antibacterial ointments, consider carefully the long term effects of using these types of products. Your skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body and our first line of immunity, is permeable to all chemicals.  There is a much safer way to soothe burns, scrapes and insect bites. 

Stock your medicine chest with products such as pure aloe vera gel, lavender essential oil, calendula ointment or cream, vitamin E oil and ice packs can provide immediate relief to many different types of topical irritations.

The great thing about using a natural product is that they have no negative side effects and all provide help with healing rather than covering up the problem.
