It is important to keep a natural first aid kit on hand for your family. Little ones often get a cut or scratch that needs tending to. With our DIY first aid kit and roller bottle recipes, you can treat even more aliments comfortably. From bug bites to seasonal allergies, these remedies are must-have.

DIY First Aid Kit for Natural Families

When Mama Z walked people through our home in the Toxic-Free, Healthy Home Makeover tour, one area we made sure to touch on was the first aid and medicinal products we use for our family. When it comes to living a toxic-free lifestyle of course this naturally extends to how we treat minor bumps, bruises, skin scrapes, and illnesses.

In addition to healing essential oil recipes for roller bottles we share below, there are some other trusted items we always have on hand in our medicine cabinet or homemade first aid kit.

  • Beta Kids Beta Glucan – At the first sign of a sneeze or a sniffle we break out our favorite beta glucan supplement, Beta Kids. Beta glucan has tremendous benefits for kids and immune support is top of the list at our house.
  • Sovereign Silver – This must-have product is in every DIY first aid kit we put together and you can find Sovereign Silver in gel, liquid or spray to cover a multitude of application needs.
  • Prebiotics and Probiotics – Any time we have digestive issues or are fighting off a bacterial infection, we want to make sure we are keeping our gut health in mind with a broad probiotic. We like RAW Probiotics Women.
  • Terminator Comb – An essential part in naturally treating lice, we hope you will never need to use. But if you ever need it you’ll be glad you have it in your first aid kit. Use the Terminator Nit-Free Comb.
  • Roll-on Blends – We recommend making the following four roll-on recipes ahead of time as we find these are the most frequent complaints we deal with at our house. We always keep our DIY first aid kit stocked with the following: Roll Away the Itch, Breathe Easy, Immune Booster, and Burn No More.

Why Essential Oils in Your First Aid Kit?

So many essential oils have healing properties which make them effective in these blends. Essential oils for healing have been used for decades and studies are showing more and more benefits.

  • LavenderLavender essential oil is used for brain health, soothing skin irritations, relieving stress and anxiety, and more. The antioxidant levels in lavender essential oil help your body manage oxidative stress. And when it comes to relieving depression, anxiety and insomnia, there’s a reason lavender is so popular. For our first aid roll-ons the pain relief and skin irritation relief are key.
  • Peppermint – In these first aid roll-on blends, we use peppermint for the pain relieving properties it has. It’s respiratory support and anti-tussive effects are also helpful for the breathe blend.
  • EucalyptusEucalyptus essential oil features in both the immunity blend roll-on and the breathe-easy roll-on. In breathe-easy, eucalyptus brings it’s power as an expectorant to help the body clear out mucus and support respiratory healing. Studies showed the antibacterial capabilities of eucalyptus essential oil as well, making it welcome in our immune blends.
  • Lemon – We love lemon essential oil for it’s many uses around the home, but in our breathe easy blend it’s something else we are after. The immunity boosting benefits of d-limonene support healing in respiratory ailments.
  • Tea tree – This is one of the most flexible essential oils so it’s in more than one of the diy first aid roll-on recipes. The antibacterial properties may be able to help you avoid unnecessary antibiotic use. Tea tree essential oil also has analgesic properties to help manage pain issues.

These DIY first aid kit roll-ons will help you begin to transition your home to more natural remedies. Check out the Toxic-Free Healthy Home Makeover for more ideas in our free, 5-video series.
