My Favorite Homeopathic Remedies for Home Use

Everyone has some amount of emergency first aid supplies in their home, band aids, first aid cream, etc. But you may consider expanding the content of your first aid kit by adding some homeopathics.

Homeopathy is a safe, effective and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, assist with restoration and improve your overall health. Homeopathy uses highly diluted herbs, minerals, or animal products (such as bee venom) in minimal doses to trigger the body’s natural ability to heal. Remedies are available in numerous forms such as pellets, tablets, and liquids with either an alcohol or glycerin base.


Why you should have a kit at home

  1. Illness and emergencies seem to strike at the most inopportune time…in the middle of the night and on weekends, when doctors’ offices are closed. Emergencies by definition are unexpected. Having a homeopathy kit at home means immediate access to a remedy when you need it most.
  2. Whether you buy a ready-made kit, or gradually build yours over time, you will find it is worth the investment. Having what you need on hand at the time you need it, also means you can get a jump start on treating an illness before it takes hold.
