So what to pack in your first aid kit this summer? Here are some of my personal favourites:
Essential oil of lavender is used for burns, bites, sunburn, stress and sleeplessness.
Use neat on burns, bathe, burn or compress for sleep and stress.
Whatever the situation, immediate or ongoing, Rescue® Remedy can help. Taken anytime, anywhere, Rescue Remedy is totally natural and contains five of the 38 Bach ® Flower Essences: Rock Rose for terror and panic, Impatiens for irritation and impatience, Clematis for inattentiveness, Star of Bethlehem for shock and Cherry Plum for irrational thoughts.
Painful cuts and wounds. A traditional, herbal product to help soothe and heal painful cuts, superficial wounds and abrasions. One of Weleda’s best-selling products – an essential part of any first aid kit.
Weleda Arnica Cream is Weleda’s top selling product and a must for the first aid kit and sports bag. Weleda Arnica Cream is widely used to relieve bruises, sprains and muscle aches. It promotes the absorption of bruising, reduces inflammation and has an analgesic effect that soothes both muscle and joint pain.
The European mountain flower, Arnica (Arnica montana) has been used for centuries in herbal medicine. Weleda Arnica Cream contains both Arnica flower and root extracts and essential oils. Made from natural and organic ingredients, it has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-bacterial properties. Relieves stiff and strained muscles and reduces muscle ache from over-exertion.
Helps support sports performance, minimise injuries and helps reduce the likelihood of recurring injuries. Relieves pain and reduces bruising from those inevitable knocks.
