How To Build An Herbal First Aid Kit

Herbal Prepper Live150A prepper’s first aid kit is a basic kit that’s often found in a bug out bag or stashed in the car. There may be a larger kit in the house. Sure, you can build a quality kit with a visit to your local pharmacy. But, what if that local pharmacy weren’t there? If we have had a societal collapse, and you run out of your bottle of ibuprofen, clotting agent, or tube of triple antibiotic ointment after just the first month, how will you resupply when there is no pharmacy?

Over the past couple of months, I have been giving my herbal kit a makeover. We have been taking more trips to the bug out location lately, and I feel the need for a kit that would do more and last longer. For this episode, I want to give you a bit of insight into what I currently include in my own kit.

7-26-15 horsetail-close-up-PDThis isn’t your typical first aid kit. First aid kits, such as those found in the workplace or ready for purchase at your local drug store or Walmart are woefully inadequate to take care of anything more than a paper cut. If you are going this route, you are better off building your own kit with quality equipment. First aid itself is intended to be only the first level of care, a stop gag measure, before being treated by someone within the medical field, either an EMT, nurse, or doctor. That is not what this kit is designed to do.

7-26-15 aloe-very-amongst-dry-leaves PDThis kit is designed for the individual who has made the choice to use herbal medicine as part of their primary health care. Currently, 80% of the world’s population uses herbal medicine as their primary form of health care or as part of their primary health care in conjunction with conventional medicine. This is a very different standard of care as compared to the United States that ignores studies on the efficacy of herbal medicine from Europe and Asia.

7-26-15 arnica PDThankfully, you do not need to have a degree in Botany or any medical degree to make and use herbal medicines safely and effectively. However, that doesn’t mean that herbal medicine is automatically safe, and caution can be thrown to the wind. If you are going to use herbal medicine as part of your primary health care, you have to do some homework. Get to know the plants, learn their traditional uses, and understand how the body functions.

7-26-15 Plantain and Comfrey 009One of the concepts I try to impress upon my students is to work with herbal medicines now. This is not something that can be learned over night. Many remedies cannot be made overnight either. So, by going through the contents of my Herbal First Aid Kit, which is more of a trauma kit, hopefully it will give you some ideas on how to work with herbs to build something very practical, and get you started with hands on uses of herbal medicine.

Herbal Prepper Live: Herbal Medicine for Emergency Preparedness

5-31-15Tune in live every Sunday evening for Herbal Prepper Live! Join herbalist and host Cat Ellis as she discusses herbs, oils, and other natural remedies tailored to preppers and survivalists.

Herbal Prepper Live is one herbalist’s opinion on alternatives to modern medicine during a total collapse of our way of life. In this hypothetical scenario, there are no doctors, EMTs, hospitals, or pharmacies. Medical help is not an option and pharmaceuticals are unavailable. If you or your loved ones need health care, it’s up to you to provide it.

What can you expect to learn by listening to this show? Here’s a sample of what you can expect:

• How to grow and craft a renewable supply of plant-based medicines that will be available to you, even if the trucks stop running.

• All about herbal first aid and making your own herbal first aid kit.

• What herbs you need to start growing and stocking up on now.

• Basic herbal skills, like how to make herbal remedies like tinctures, teas, poultices, infused oils, oxymels, infused honey, syrups, and more.

• How to address chronic conditions that often require maintenance medications if pharmacy shelves are empty.

• How to stop a postpartum hemorrhage without Pitocin.

Ask yourself, could you care for your and your loved one’s health care needs if The End Of The World As We Know It, such as an economic collapse, an EMP, or a breakdown of society and services happened tomorrow?

Or, what if you were suddenly faced with a layoff, a lapse of insurance, denied services by Obamacare- are you equipped for a more personal collapse? Emergencies aren’t always catastrohpic, and personal-level emergencies also need preps and a plan.

If you answered no to either quesiton and you’d like to know more, you are going to want to tune in.

Remember to join us live in the chat room. This show is for you!
