Create Your Own Natural First Aid Kit

naturalfirstaid

Most of us have a first aid kit to reach for in emergencies, but for those who like to use natural products whenever possible, creating your own natural first aid and illness kit should be a priority.

Recently I found a great article over at Wellness Mama on how to create your own homemade natural aid chest, complete with recommendations for suppliers and a discussion of why certain items are included.

The kit includes a wide range of natural first aid supplies, including activated charcoal (to help treat food poisoning), arnica (for bruising and muscle pain), chamomile, Aloe Vera, epsom saltsĀ  and a wide range of other essential oils and other herbs to treat a wide range of illnesses and accidents.

Miniature Metal Watering Can Party Favors

miniaturewatercanA close friend of mine is getting married this Spring, and she recently asked me for some help in coming up with some cute wedding favors suitable for a Spring wedding.

As a gardener, I wanted something that would reflect love blossoming and spring time, and I came across the idea of using miniature metal watering cans and “love blooms” seed packs for party favors. She loved the idea, and we are now collecting supplies.

You can find out more about how to make these adorable wedding favors, plus many recommendations for where to find the cute watering cans and seed packs here:
