Home Remedies for First Aid

If your like us, at some point or other, you've had to come up with a "Home Remedy" for things like :
  • upset tummies
  • sunburn
  • bug bites
  • toothache
  • etc.....

Over the years, I've tried different home remedies.

Mostly because we were camping or traveling and I had forgotten to include that one item  in our First Aid Kit, that I now needed.

A few things that I've tried are:

  • baking soda for bug bites (mix with a little water and apply as paste too bite)
  • wet tea bags for sun burn or brew up some tea, ice down and apply with wash clothes
  • an eye wash using salt and bottled water(be sure to boil water if possible with salt,than cool down before using)
  • for bruises-grab the tea bags again, soak in water and apply tea bag to bruised area.
These are my stand by's for basic home remedies.

What's your go to home remedy?
