Take a look inside the average first-aid kit and you’ll likely find chemical-filled antibiotic sprays and ointments. While these products tend to be quite effective and cheap, they are far from natural and holistic. Fortunately, you can create your own first-aid kit with healthier products relatively easily.
If you have no first-aid kit, this list will be an excellent resource to get you started. This list is by no means definite but does cover all the bases of basic, natural first aid. If you already have a first-aid kit, don’t feel like you have to throw everything away and start over. It would be a better idea simply to phase in new products as your old ones are used up or reach their expiration date.
Let’s get on with the list:
1. An Air-Tight and Leak-Proof Container
A sturdy storage container is the perfect first-aid kit container, especially if it has a handle for mobility and a locking lid to keep children out. Typically, storage containers by brands like Sterilite or Rubbermaid are clear. But if you can find a proper-sized model in tinted or opaque colors, opt for those.
