HOME REMEDY   

                                           Natural First Aid Kits 

My friends often laugh, but I have always had some form of a first aid kit with me at all times. It must be the combo of part mother (though I am not a mother - the instincts are strong :), and part healer. In addition to your usual first aid kit items , there are some amazing herbal and natural items you can add to your kit at home, car, day trip packs and purses that can make a huge difference! Click on the item to see where to buy it.
