The KISS Kit: A Complete Herbal First Aid Kit with only Ten Remedies
Host: Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live”
So, you want to put an herbal first aid kit together. Great! A solid, herbal first aid kit provides effective natural medicine for the most common injuries, aches, and infections. However, there are so many wonderful herbs out there to choose from, that putting an herbal first aid kit together can feel overwhelming if you’re new to herbalism. And for those more experienced with herbs, it’s tempting to try to pack your entire collection into your kit.
To help people put together an herbal first aid kit, I put together a functional, well-rounded herbal first aid kit based on the navy’s KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) design principal. Using only ten natural substances, this kit covers everything from bumps and bites to bacteria and burns. Headaches, intestinal discomforts, and stress/emotional trauma are also covered as well.
Each element of the kit was chosen to be as multipurpose as possible, giving the greatest number of uses with the fewest number of ingredients. This meant eliminating many of my favorite herbs, which was necessary to keep this a true first aid kit, and not a more involved trauma kit.
All of the skills necessary to make a kit like this are straightforward, keeping with the KISS design principal. Making teas, tinctures, and salves are basic herbalist skills that anyone can learn to do in a very short period of time.
Ready to get started making your first, herbal first aid kit? Be sure to listen to the live broadcast on PrepperBroadcasting.com, Sunday, August 17, 2014 at 7pm EST and 4pm PST. I will walk you through the entire process, plus give you some space-saving, cost-saving tips on assembling the kit to store in your bug out bag, everyday carry, or as your car kit.
