Course Description

While most first aid kits on the market come equipped with a few pharmaceutical remedies, there simply aren’t equivalents for many natural first-aid remedies for home health needs.

Think how often you wished that you had the right healing remedy at hand. Something that could have helped heal a wound, alleviated an illness or even saved you from going into a clinic. You can have this right at your disposal, and it's easier than you think!

In this course you will learn remedies essential for health and to have on hand for several common situations including nausea, cough, toothache, sunburn, burns, diarrhea and infections just to name a few. Many of these health remedies are as simple as knowing to put honey on a burn.

Remedies include teas, powders, tinctures, essential oils, as well as creams, oils and salves. Most can be purchased. A few you will have to make but you will be glad you did! We’ll even cover a few ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen.

Being prepared is essential!
