Natural Wound Care at Home: 7 Products You Need for Your Homemade First Aid Kit

When you started living a toxic-free and natural life, you probably changed your diet first. But did you know the health and beauty products we use every day also pose a source of toxicity? When you’re sick or injured, it’s even more important to adhere to your natural lifestyle. When a cut, bruise, scrape, or other minor first aid injury arises, try these products instead:1. Witch HazelWitch hazel has long been known for its oil absorbing properties. For generations, women have been applying witch hazel to reduce inflammation, oiliness and other symptoms of acne. However, witch hazel can also be used to help disinfect wounds. Apply witch hazel to a cut or scrap like you would rubbing alcohol to disinfect and promote healing.2. Coconut OilSome say coconut oil is a superfood—but if you ask me it’s a total miracle food. You might be used to cooking with coconut oil, but it definitely belongs in your natural wound care kit. Coconut oil is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Because it’s become such a popular product, it’s also widely available. Look for organic, unrefined, and cold-pressed coconut oil. Coconut oil is particularly effective against nail fungus. Simply rub a little into the infected nail twice a day. Coconut oil can also help fade scars from scrapes and other cuts that have already healed.
