Developing a First Aid Kit Using Essential Oils

Like you, the first thing I think of whenever a loved one is hurt is to rush them to a clinic or Emergency Room. If we are to be prepared for disruptions, however, we need to pay special attention to how we will cope with health emergencies. The bottom line question you should ask yourself is what would I do if the clinic or Emergency Room were not available to me?

The answer is to make provisions for Self Care First Aid. Having a well stocked first aid box in your home could well make the difference between life and death. Self care will play ever increasing roles in the future. Those who are prepared will be able to handle a variety of health emergencies.

First aid supplies like gauze and bandages are a given, and you should actively seek them out. Look over first aid kits in the stores and see what they contain. You are doing this because you want those things, but in larger quantity. The idea is to tailor make a self contained home self care unit you can rely upon in emergencies. This might include such things as oxygen, rubber gloves, dust masks and more exotic items not found in a traditional first aid kit.

Without question, one of the most universal health care substances known are essential oils. You will want to include them in your Self Care First Aid supply. Just look at how powerful they really are.

It is very important to keep an essential oil safety data sheet on hand with these oils. Always refer to a usage guide if you do not have experience in using essential oils.

Carrier Oil:
This is a safe mixture of oils used to dilute the above oils before applying them to the body. Carrier oils typically are massage oils which contain various neutral oils.

The future belongs to those who prepare for it. The home health care movement is growing in this country, but is doing so largely out of dissatisfaction with the health industry. However, as catastrophic events are forced upon us, and the professional health industry is no longer able to care for everyone, home health care and Self care first aid will become the norm for millions. Your life may one day depend on it.
