Not a day goes by where we doesn’t experience cuts, wounds, minor injuries, bruises, and the like. It can happen anytime, whether during vigorous activity or even while just hanging out with others. This is why having a basic homeopathic first aid kit is so necessary.
At the very least, it’s important to have the right homeopathic remedies with you as often as possible. These remedies will greatly encourage healing for any bruises, wounds, or other minor injuries.
I personally have used these remedies in many instances where I had an acute incident, such as a minor injury or a wound. These really came in handy when I needed them!
Don’t Forget Band-Aids!
No matter remedy you decide to use, always remember to use band-aids for small wounds. For larger wounds, go for butterfly bandages. If a wound is more serious, then obviously stitches may be necessary.
And don’t forget to wipe the wound outward, not inward, and always use sterile bandage.
My Recommended Homeopathic First Aid Kit Remedies
Here are some homeopathic remedies you MUST have on you whether in your home or on the go. I usually take these with me at all times, and when I don’t, I usually regret it…
Here are some of the most valuable homeopathic first aid remedies that you should know about:
Aconite is a key remedy for early stages of wounds, injuries, fevers, and other ailments. It’s specifically for when the person feels a sense of shock or trauma in the early stages of a wound, injury, fever, etc.
The person needing this remedy will tend have a lot of body heat, as well as dryness and thirst. Mentally, they will feel restless, fearful, and panicky. He or she may even predict their own death.
Arnica is the #1 remedy for injuries and bruising. It’s the first remedy to turn to in situations like that.
The person needing this remedy will have a traumatic wound or injury that feels like a bruise. It will look brown and blue, and it will also be infected.
The injured person needing Arnica will look hurt, yet he or she will not want anyone touching them. The person will claim that “I’m okay” when they really aren’t.
Arnica also comes in a gel form, which is useful in many acute situations.
Like Arnica, Bellis Perennis is another awesome remedy for muscular and bruising pains. Consider this remedy for traumatic pains to the trunk of the body and to soft sections of the body such as the abdomen.
Calendula is a great and sought after remedy for helping knit the skin back together. Use Calendula when skin comes off in pieces.
In other words, consider Calendula for repairing…
- big cuts.
- painful wounds.
- skin irritations.
- bug bites.
- razor cuts.
- other localized routine cuts and wounds.
These symptoms may also be accompanied by nervousness and twitching.
Calendula also comes in gel form, which has worked very well for me and many others. It’s definitely a must!
Hypericum is the best remedy for violent nerve wounds, especially in areas rich in nerves such as the fingers. This is useful in cases such as crushing your fingers in the door or getting a splinter.
It also happens to be a great remedy for getting scratched by an animal, such as by cats.
It’s the #2 best remedy for puncture wounds after Ledum, the next remedy on the list.
Ledum is the #1 go-to remedy for puncture wounds where there is purple abscesses, swelling, and coldness on the wounds.
Phosphorous is a commonly used remedy for various chronic mental, emotional, and physical ailments. It’s no different when it comes to acute cases like wounds and other minor first aid injuries.
Phosphorus treats small wounds that have a lot of bleeding involved. The bleeding coagulates after it leaves the body. The blood itself tends to be bright red, a keynote for Phosphorous.
In addition, when dealing with wounds that heal, but then they break open again – think of Phosphorus.
Staphysagria in well known first aid therapeutics for treating wounds and injuries resulting from sharp, cutting instruments on the skin, such as knifes and glass.
This can also include injuries from surgical incisions and abdominal or genital operational injuries. Ouch!
You can tell if Staphysagria is necessary if the wound produces a discharge is greenish and is exquisitely painful.
On the more mental and emotional plane, the person will wonder how this injury happened ot him. He or she may even feel indignation over getting hurt.
The person will also be hypersensitive from the pain, worse from touch, and better from warmth.
