Think of it as “travel insurance”
Have you ever been traveling and had a minor health crisis? It might be jet lag, an allergic reaction, insomnia, car sickness, or even a blistering sunburn. It sucks when all your remedies are at home and your only access to a helpful remedy is a pricey 2 dose package of over the counter drugs in the hotel concierge. That is if you can even find the OTC medicine you need where you are.
I know because that happened to me. We were in Phoenix at a 3 day business conference in March of 2017. Many people were missing the conference because of a nasty flu bug that was going around. We thought we were safe. It was just a weekend trip. We hadn’t been sick for months.
We arrived at the hotel on Thursday afternoon and headed out to a Mexican restaurant just across the street. By 7pm we were sitting in a meeting and Mr. Joybilee became hot and itchy. His back felt like it was on fire. There was a red, blistering rash breaking out from waist to neck. I had a small tin of salve in my suitcase, but instead of helping, the salve increased the burning feeling. Within a couple hours he was vomiting. I didn’t have any ginger. I didn’t have any benadryl. The hotel concierge was closed. We were in a strange city without a car. Mr. Joybilee hardly slept that night. He was up retching in the hotel bathroom. I lay in bed praying and wondering if I should call 911.
In the morning I found a two serving package of Emergen-C for electrolytes and a 2 dose package of Dimenhydrinate (aka. Gravol) — $12 each. Once he had the dimenhydrinate the vomiting stop and the rash slowly disappeared. He didn’t need the second dose. But he was weak and exhausted and missed the first two days of the 3 day event.
That was the last trip we ever made without my herbal travel first aid kit. Today I carry this small herbal travel kit that includes ginger candy, Emergen-C, bandaids, herbal sleep tea, herbal sunburn tea, anti-itch salve, and several other easy to DIY natural remedies that fit into a small makeup bag.
This first aid kit has proven it’s usefulness on 9 trips since March of 2017. It’s been to Toronto, Jerusalem, Telaviv, Dallas, Austin, Niagra Falls, Vancouver Island, and even Vancouver. This DIY herbal first aid travel kit has saved us time, because we have all the remedies we need with us every time we leave home. Remedies that are familiar and easy to use. And easy to re-DIY as needed.
Plus this DIY herbal first aid travel kit has saved us money because we haven’t had to run to the store or the hotel concierge in an emergency.
These remedies also save us luggage space. Each remedy addresses several common issues you’ll encounter when you travel. So if you value packing light, this DIY kit will serve you well.
Having these remedies with us has actually reduced our need for herbal remedies because when you have what you need at the first sign of a problem you can prevent a small crisis from becoming an overwhelming emergency and a ride in an ambulance.
Even when I slipped on the ice and banged my head, on Christmas Day in Vancouver, we had the salves, tinctures, and tea with us and only needed to find a little ice for the bruise. Instead of heading to the hospital emergency with a concussion, we were able to apply herbal remedies quickly, stop the bleeding, and avoid a more serious problem.
If you’ve ever been caught away from home with a minor health issue, this DIY herbal first aid travel kit will help you resolve many issues quickly. It could help you avoid an emergency room visit. And you won’t have to recover twice — once from the injury and again from the remedy, because herbal remedies support the body’s own healing mechanisms.
