Earlier this week we talked about homeopathic first aid remedies (as well as several herbal ones, if you missed that post!). That post, however, may have been overwhelming for some: there are so many options out there! How do you know where to start?
Luckily, that’s where Naturokits comes in.
Naturokits is a company that is dedicated to homeopathic first aid. They’ve actually created a “Basics” kit exactly for these types of situations! This totally simplifies knowing which remedies to choose, because you don’t have to choose. They’ve done it for you, providing you with several remedies (and a handy little insert on how and when to use them).
Here’s some information from the company:
NaturoKits® presents the Basic First Aid NaturoKit®: an innovative first aid kit created by two Portland naturopathic physicians and moms.
Let’s face it; moms and dads are busy nowadays. They want their families taken care of; they want peace of mind; they want to feel smart and prepared; they want things to be easy, effective, and quick. Our Basic First Aid NaturoKit® delivers!

A couple weeks ago, Naturokits sent me their basic kit to try. I haven’t gotten a chance to try very many remedies yet (thankfully; my son had a bee land on his hand over the weekend but luckily he just sat and stared at it and didn’t move so it didn’t sting him!). I did use the Wild Weed Salve when my daughter was complaining that her hand hurt. I believe this made her feel better. (It’s hard to tell with her sometimes…!)
Honestly, I’m happy just knowing that as we go into the summer, we’re covered if anything happens. I know that if we do get any bee stings, I’ve got a remedy (Apis) plus salve that can help my kids feel better, fast. We’ve used arnica (also in the kit) before on bumps and bruises with great results. We’ve used activated charcoal (also in the kit) for nausea and vomiting also with very good results. These are the types of products you just don’t want to be without!
With this kit, they all come in a heavy-duty, yet small canvas bag, nicely organized, with a piece of paper explaining in detail exactly which remedies are for which conditions. In fact, it’s listed both by remedy and by condition, in case you don’t know where to look!
If you’re still uncertain about how or why to use some of this stuff, Naturokits is holding a FREE webinar this Saturday, April 16th, from 10 – 11:30 am PST. You can register here. If you can’t attend, the podcast will be available online for a few weeks after.
