Keeping your family safe is always top of mind, but do you know what you need to build a natural first aid kit? Choose products that use ingredients you can trust and create a kit that will keep everyone safe! Here are our recommendations:
Charcoal pills work well for vomiting and diarrhea, but can also be administered if your child swallows something toxic. Make sure to keep your local poison control number handy in the case that something serious, like a battery or magnet, is ingested. If someone has an upset stomach, ginger pills can also be helpful.
Arnica is a natural pain reliever, and Genexa’s Arnica Advantage is great to keep in your kit. This organic formula is designed to reduce muscle pain, soreness, bruises, and swelling.
Although typically more common in the winter months, colds can strike at any time. Keeping some cold remedies in your natural first aid will come in handy! Genexa’s Cold Crush Adults and Cold Crush for Children are organic medicines that can treat your toughest cough and cold symptoms. Vitamin C can also help your body recover faster.
Just like colds, you never know when allergies could strike. Stock your kit with Genexa’s Allergy-D and Allergy-D for Children will help ease the annoying allergy symptoms like itchy eyes, runny noses, and sneezing.
Even when the sun isn’t out, its harmful rays are still present. Make sure you are well-stocked with a natural mineral-based sunscreen. Check out these recommendations for some all-natural sun protectants.
Aloe vera gel is especially important to have on-hand during the summer months. This cooling gel can relieve painful sunburns and help alleviate itching from insect bites.
