For many people, summer is a time to get out and enjoy the open air with family and friends. And although outdoor activities can be a lot of fun, it’s always a good idea to be prepared ahead of time in case of injury. One safety measure is to have a comprehensive first aid kit available during the season. The diagram on the right outlines some of the main homeopathic remedies used when first aid events occur and adding these to your conventional first aid kit is an excellent idea.
Other items that you will want to have on hand during the summer are aloe gel (in case of sunburn), calendula cream (for healing cuts and scrapes) and apis gel (for mosquito and other insect bites).
And remember, you should drink plenty of water to stay well hydrated throughout these hot summer months! Adding electrolytes to your water will also help prevent heat exhaustion and muscle cramps.
