The best thing about my traveling medicine cabinet is that there is not a single harmful ingredient in any of it!! Why administer medicines that contain ingredients that are harmful and can compromise your health, when there are natural, effective alternatives? 🙂
I always give my family some sort of immune booster once a day starting a week before we plan to leave for our trip. This can be colloidal silver, echinacea, elderberry syrup, etc. Giving the immune system an extra boost before we leave prepares our bodies for the trip. For the trip I usually bring the colloidal silver with me and administer one dose a day. Silver not only boosts the immune system and does an amazing job to fight and prevent any sickness, it can also be used as a remedy for ear infections and food poisoning.
On this trip I brought along my cough medicine because the baby was battling slight congestion and occasionally coughing. The properties in this cough medicine work wonders in breaking up and getting rid of congestion! You always want to be aggressive when the slightest cough or raspy breathing is heard. Doing this will keep the situation from becoming serious! You can give this homemade cough medicine every 15 minutes if needed, whereas over-the-counter medicine can only be given every 2-4 hours because of the unsafe ingredients it contains.
Cayenne pepper is my favorite remedy for headaches. I have not had to use pain relievers since using it. It is also used to stop bleeding, heartattacks, strokes, shock. This is a must to have on hand!
This ointment can also be used for headaches. I normally drink the cayenne and rub this ointment on the area of pain for headaches. It can be rubbed on the sinus areas of the face to relieve pressure and drain clogged sinuses. I rub it behind ears for ear aches and infections, and also on the chest and back for congestion and coughs. It’s great stuff!
This is my favorite salve for cuts and bug bites. It heals and fights infection, plus it does a great job of taking the itch out of the bites!
Great to use for stomach aches. Breathe the oil in deeply and place a few drops on the stomach throughout the day to ward off nausea and stomach aches. If pregnant, do not use the oil until the last trimester!
This oil is my favorite for removing ticks, breathing in to protect against viruses and sicknesses, and relieving congestion. Can also be placed on the head for headaches, and used to kill infections.
