8 Natural First Aid Remedies for Summer


Summertime in Southern Idaho means outside, camping, fairs, rodeos, boating and a fun. With an active outdoor lifestyle, bumps and scrapes are bound to happen – especially with the kids. Here are some simple natural remedies to meet some of your first aid needs while you are having fun this summer.

Insect Bites and Stings: Wet leafy chewing tobacco and rub over bite, allowing the juice to stay on, or apply poultice of ground Comfrey leaves and water, or apply Lavender oil.


Spider Bites: Rub lavender oil and/or tea tree oil on bite until symptoms disappear. Clay poultice will draw poisons. Lavender oil neutralizes poisons.

Snake Bite: Rub lavender oil over whole limb that was bitten and get medical help as soon as possible.

Poison Ivy/Oak: Aloe vera gel is very helpful when applied to affected area. Apply lavender oil to rash. Apply equal parts apple cider vinegar and water to skin. Yarrow made into a strong tea can be rubbed on body and taken internally for symptoms.

Burns: Apply aloe vera gel, tea tree oil, or run cool water over burn. Or use equal parts vinegar and water.

Stinging Nettle: Wherever stinging nettle grows, burdock grows close by. Take a leaf of burdock or cottonwood and rub on the sting of the nettle and it will go away instantly.

Insect Repellent: Citronella oil and bergamot orange oil and lavender oil, equal amounts.

Ticks: Drop 1 drop of thyme oil and oregano oil on the tick and it should release.

A friend came to visit the other day and when it was time for her to leave her parting words were, "What has happened to you? I have known you for years and you have been so ill. What are you doing to get your health back? You look better than I have ever seen you." Those were welcome words. What is the difference? Procedures from The Healthy Way have changed my life. I am so grateful for the ability to sleep again, to walk, to have removed the terrible pain that was with me 24 hours a day. I am grateful to have my life back again. How can anything so easy work? It just does!
