There are certain things I always try to keep in stock in my medicine cabinet. Here are the things I find most useful t have on hand for all natural remedies of ailments that come up quite often on our farm.
- Tea Tree Oil: I seriously buy this in bulk. I feel like it is good for almost anything. We use it on insect bites, to make all All Natural Bug Spray, I use it for fungal infections, cold sores and worts.
- Rosemary Oil:this is a good topical muscle pain reliever, which after a hard day working on the farm can be amazingly useful.
- Yarrow: I try to keep this dried herb on hand it is useful for bringing down fever and for healing wounds. Yarrow salve is also great to have on hand for eczema and poison ivy.
- Aloe Vera: I have an aloe plant. The aloe sap is great for burns and sun burns. Aloe is also good for eczema and dry scratchy skin.
- Peppermint and Eucalyptus Oil Blend: these are great for head aches, sinus congestion and cough and cold. For headaches you can put some under your nose or rub onto your temples. For congestion I put it in a humidifier or diffuser.
- Sage, Rosemary and Thyme Extract: I make an extract with these three herbs to have for cold and flu season. A few drops a day in glass of water can help you recover faster from illness.
- Echinacea: This is great to make into a tea or an extract for cold and flu season to help boost your immune system and fight off illness. It is also good if you have a cold sore or any type of infection. It naturally boosts your immune system and help your body heal itself.
- Dill: Dill is great for gas pains and flatulence.
- Peppermint: This is good for nausea and stomach pain.
- Ginger: This is another great nausea and stomach pin reliever, especially for indigestion and heartburn.
- Cayenne pepper: This can help stop bleeding quickly and it also helps relieve headaches.
- chamomile and lavender: This is a great stress reliever. My daughter has anxiety and a cup of lavender and chamomile tea when she gets home from school helps her unwind from a stressful day.
- Willow Bark: A natural pain reliever, similar to aspirin
- Apple Cider Vinegar: This is great for fungal infections, worts, and can be applied to sunburns to take the sting out.I also use it on my horses hooves to All Natural Thrush Preventer for Horses and mix it with my animals water to get rid of fleas, ticks and intestinal worms. It also makes a great DIY All Natural Face Wash (Helps Acne and Wrinkles) for my teenager.
- Epsom Salt: This is good for soar muscles, swelling and to soak out splinters.
- Hydrogen peroxide: I use this to clean out wounds, both on humans and my animals. It also can be given to animals to induce vomiting if they eat something poisonous. (Check with your vet before trying this) It can be put in the ear to aid with ear infections and swimmers ear.
- Herbal Head Pillow
