Every home has a first aid kit but there is an alternative, have you ever thought about assembling your own aromatherapy first aid kit? All you need is a good container marked Essential Oils, Alternative First Aid, or Aromatherapy to house the kit and keep your oils away from light, dampness and extreme heat so they don’t deteriorate. The three major oils to stash in your alternative first aid kit are eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree oil.

These three oils will aid with colds, wounds, burns, bruises, insect bites, muscle pain, fungal infections and much more. They can be dispensed in a number of ways depending on the need including directly from the bottle, in a carrier or base oil, in a steam bath, or on a compress. On July 4th, there is always the possibility of burns from fireworks so have your kit close by, just in case. A touch of lavender essential oil on a small burn from a firecracker or sparkler will calm the burned child (or grownup) and also ease the pain. If the burn is more serious, please see a physician.
