Hi mamas!  I'd like to know: What do you consider the basics/fundamentals/essentials of your natural medicine cabinet?*


Right now I pretty much just keep on-hand colloidal silver, tea tree oil, activated charcoal, turmeric and coconut oil, which has been fine for me 'til now.  However, I have a baby now and want to have my medicine cabinet ready for any illnesses that might crop up along the way!   I live in Europe, and many natural remedy ingredients aren't easily available here, so I want to stock up on my next trip to the U.S.


*Disclaimer: My "medicine cabinet" is just a shoe box in my bedroom cabinet.  :)

I have eucalyptus oil for stuffy ness and congestion.   Lavender oil for rashes/bites.   Witch Hazel, garlic oil, a rice bag.  Plus I also do have pain reliever, cold med, benadryl, neosporin and bandaids, tapes, wraps.  Which aren't "natural" but a need IMO.  I also really love my "green stuff" from Burts Bees.  I put it on bruises and scrapes and bug bites.
