Take a look inside the average first-aid kit and you’ll likely find chemical-filled antibiotic sprays and ointments. While these products tend to be quite effective and cheap, they are far from natural and holistic. Fortunately, you can create your own first-aid kit with healthier products relatively easily.

If you have no first-aid kit, this list will be an excellent resource to get you started. This list is by no means definite but does cover all the bases of basic, natural first aid. If you already have a first-aid kit, don’t feel like you have to throw everything away and start over. It would be a better idea simply to phase in new products as your old ones are used up or reach their expiration date.

Let’s get on with the list:

1. An Air-Tight and Leak-Proof Container

A sturdy storage container is the perfect first-aid kit container, especially if it has a handle for mobility and a locking lid to keep children out. Typically, storage containers by brands like Sterilite or Rubbermaid are clear. But if you can find a proper-sized model in tinted or opaque colors, opt for those.

Opaque containers will be excellent for preventing light/sunlight from damaging your products and tinted containers will be more effective at this than see-through models. Either way, you should keep your first-aid kit in a cool, dark place that isn’t excessively humid.

2. Pure Essential Oils

If you aren’t already aware, high-quality essential oils are incredibly powerful. Not only do certain scents invoke emotions and feelings such as calmness or alertness, but many also have healing capabilities. (Read: A Beginner’s Guide To Essential Oils [3].)

Essential oil [4]Also try to purchase 100 percent pure essential oils. Be aware of cheap blends that use fillers or oils being sold as essential oils when they are in fact fragrance oils and should NOT be used.

Here are a few essential oils you should keep in your first-aid kit:

This is really just the tip of the iceberg in terms of which oils are useful for first-aid applications. I highly recommend investigating this subject further and deciding which oils are best for your needs.

3. Herbs and Spices

Chamomile [10]


Fresh herbs are usually the most potent, but it is still a good idea to have dried versions of these herbs in your kit.

Other Supplies

Here are some other useful first-aid supplies to have in your kit.

4. Activated Charcoal: Very useful for emergency situations in which a toxic substance has been ingested or if the person is experiencing stomach flu symptoms.

5. DIY Natural Vapor Rub: Traditional Vicks has nothing on the effectiveness of this recipe. Learn how to make your own natural vapor rub here [12].

6. DIY Healing Cream: You can replace traditional antibiotic ointments or sprays with this Natural Neosporin Alternative [13].

7. Natural Lozenges: Teas are wonderful for soothing a sore throat but sometimes lozenges are your best bet if you are away from your house. You can make your own (check out this [14] recipe) or buy all-natural lozenges such as Wedderspoon lozenges, which are as effective as they are delicious.

8. Vitamin C and Vitamin D Tablets: Taking extra vitamin C and vitamin D will help adults and children alike get through an illness more quickly.

9. Sea Salt: Sea salt mixed into warm water (one-fourth to one-half teaspoon dissolved in a cup) can be used to clean wounds as well as be swished in the mouth to sooth tooth pain or oral injuries like a burnt tongue.

10. Hydrogen Peroxide: Excellent for cleaning up abrasions and scrapes. Can also be swished in the mouth for oral trouble – just be sure to spit it out. This also can be dripped into the ears via a cotton swab or cotton ball to prevent or heal an ear infection. A cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide should not be left in the ear for more than 10 minutes. (Read: 5 Off-Grid Reasons You Should Stockpile Hydrogen Peroxide [15].)

11. Bandaging Materials

It is often much cheaper to buy these products, particularly the liquids, in larger containers or in bulk. To keep a tidy, compact first-aid kit, I recommend you use small bottles found in the travel section of drug stores or big box stores. By divvying up the product in smaller containers you’ll have some for your kit and your medicine cabinet at home.

This list is a wonderful starting point for a natural first-aid kit. Please keep in mind that these products are only for use in treating minor injuries and are not a replacement for medical treatment via a medical doctor.

While many people believe that natural remedies are safer than modern medicines, this is not an excuse to go about holistic health care without thorough research. Some people, particularly children and pregnant women, can be especially sensitive to essential oils, and extreme care must be taken.
