1 Comment on "Natural Remedy Kit – Outdoor Survival Kit – 8 parts"

  1. Burt’s Bees has wonderful sample sizes to introduce you to natural remedies. These items relieve the discomfort of minor skin irritations from gardening or outdoor adventures. You may also want to keep a kit around for burns, bruises, stings and scrapes.

    Lavender Mint Toothpaste – A tingly vegetable and chalk based toothpaste with ingredients like the oil of peppermint, spearmint and clove. Cranberry extract purifies and refreshes the gums while the bentonite clay scrubs and polishes your teeth. Worth trying if you are allergic to regular toothpaste. The addition of geranium oil and lavender was a pleasant surprise.

    Res-Q Ointment – One of my favorite soothing remedies with a slightly medical scent. You can use this on bumps, bruises, burns, stings and scrapes. It is made with sweet almond oil, olive oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, wheat germ oil, vitamin e, lavender oil and comfrey extracts. Lavender heals the skin faster and vitamin E helps to prevent scars.

    Lifeguard’s Choice Weatherproofing Lip Balm – Perfect for outdoor sports in the summer or winter. Made with beeswax, coconut oil, sunflower oil, vitamin E and delicious things like peppermint oil. Also contains comfrey root extract and rosemary extract.

    Hand Salve – This product produces feelings of elation for some reason. I think it must be the flower extracts. Ingredients: Sweet almond oil, olive oil, beeswax, vitamin E, comfrey extract, rosemary oil, lavadin oil, flower extract, eucalyptus oil. This is a greasy product that will seal in moisture and you can apply it at bedtime or before gardening.

    Rosemary Mint Shampoo Bar – I’ve used this as a soap because of the oat protein that seems soothing to my skin. I also like the scent of the rosemary in the shower.

    Feeling Flaky Shampoo – A total scalp and hair cleanser that is perfect to use every few weeks to wash away residue from other products. Makes your hair and scalp feel super clean and nourished. Especially good for a dry scalp in the winter.

    And now for the highly scented product…

    Poison Ivy Soap – A strong smelling soap, so best to keep this in a plastic soap container you would use for travel. This soap is perfect if you are outdoors in the summer and your skin gets irritated. Definitely a must while camping or after gardening.
