151123 Emergency Supplies
was reading about emergency supplies. This is something that
interests me. Here is part of the list of things one needs for
to have on hand:
or paper medical tape 1-2 inch wide
x 4 gauze; it can be folded over when the injury is small.
bandages — 3-5 inches wide for the lower and upper extremities
remover to remove foreign bodies
I edited this list a little for my own needs, I had to totally scrap
his list of medications. We use essential oils, which have something
like a twenty year shelf life.
we need for common ailments and emergencies:
treats all viral and bacterial infections.
pain: equal parts copaiba, balsam fir, and frankincense. Place four
drops each into 00 capsule and take every three to five hours as
vetiver, marjoram, lemon, and coriander. Place three drops each
into 00 capsule and take as needed.
aches: cypress and lemongrass. Place three drops each into 00
capsule, add several drops of olive oil, and take as needed.
medications: Peppermint, Wintergreen, or eucalyptus. Smell one or
medications: Apply DiGize® to the
tummy area, or take internally.
medications: frankincense, lavender and carrot work well for skin
conditions. Mix with equal parts of carrier oil, and apply
topically. For sunscreen, add about thirty drops of lavender to
four ounces of sesame oil and apply to skin.
medications: Ha! Use Peace and Calming®,
Grounding®, or Common Sense®
or some other blend that address the specific complaint.
Frankincense is also good for improving one's mood, especially when
coupled with the Word of God!
medications: Common Sense® works. My
favorite blend uses four drops each of ocotea, clove, and bergamot.
now I have the ultimate list of oils to keep with me. I shall build
my supply. These oils keep for years, even decades, unopened, so
stockpiling is not the waste of money that chemical medications could
become. Plus, some of them can be grown locally.
short list of valuable oils:
guys are the ones I use on a regular basis. Other that I that would
be nice to have on hand would be:
is one I should probably have, because it provides emotional
grounding and sleep support. Frankly, I have no problem with my
sleep. I have come to like the cat naps I take instead of the one
long chunk. Insomnia is good for writing. On the other hand,
vetiver is a
vital ingredient in the alternative to acetaminophen.
