1. Sovereign Silver Colloidial Silver First Aid Gel
If you are looking for an all-around product for cuts, scratches, and more- look for colloidal silver. It’s kid-safe and sting-free, but it’s anti-microbial properties fight off infection and help with healing.
2. Dr. Nordykes Wound Honey
Manuka honey is FULL of skin-healing properties and helps to fight infections.
3. Christophers Black Ointment
Drawing salve is a great thing to have on hand especially for splinters!
4. Boiron Calendula
Calendula is a great ingredient to look for! It’s a multi-tasking herb that encourages healing all around. This ointment from Boiron has been around for years and can be used in many ways.
5. Organnons Oak & Ivy spray
Poison Ivy is the WORST- and it can spread fast and make summer miserable. Next time you see some growing, look around to what growing near it and you will find Jewelweed. Jewelweed contains compounds that help with the symptoms of Poison Ivy. Our spray contains a good amount of the extract along with other healing plant extracts.
6. Pharm-Aloe Gelly
We know that burns are soothed by aloe vera, but be careful when purchasing- make sure it contains actual aloe! We love Pharm-Aloe because its the REAL DEAL!
7. Boiron Arnicare
Arnica is homeopathy used for pain and swelling of all kinds. It’s gentle, it doesn’t have a strong smell. Use it on bruises, sore joints and muscle and more!
8. Boiron Oscillococcinum
You know that feeling: you just spent hours on a plane with people coughing and sneezing. Or maybe you got an email from the school that the flu is going around your child’s grade. Either way- you are looking for something to keep yourself WELL- Osillococcinum to the rescue! Easy to take- just dissolve the vial under your tongue.
9. Gaia Echinacea Supreme
We love Gaia because they make amazing, effective formulas, and they are transparent about their sourcing and manufacturing. So, of course their Echinacea is top-notch. Add it to your stay-well arsenal!
10. Quantum MigShield
Headaches can take a whole day down with them. It’s easy to grab a pain reliever to dull the pounding, but over the counter pain relief is hard on your system. Quantum’s MigShield is formulated using research and its simple formula helps your body fight off headaches at the source.
11. Olbas Oil Inhaler
Instant gratification! Try one of these little guys for stuffy noses, sinus headaches or even just fatigue.
12. Xlear Nasal Spray
A good saline spray can help with allergies and Xlear takes it a step further with the addition of xylitol. Xylitol has been found to help with the symptoms of sinusitis and help clear up issues faster than saline alone.
13. Organnons Elderberry Syrup
Elderberry syrup has gone from a crazy folk remedy to a science-backed supplement in the last 10 years. It’s so easy to take, and effective- especially without added sugar or flavors! Our brand is free of additives- you just get the good stuff, and the price is right-on!
14. Natural Factors DGL
Heartburn is a menace, but anti-acids only mask the issue. Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice soothes and calms the burn while helping to repair the lining of the stomach.
15. Solaray Activated Charcoal
Activated charcoal is showing up EVERYWHERE. Have you noticed? Its a hardworking ingredient that is extremely absorbent- which means its perfect for soaking up toxins after a questionable meal or for bloating and gas. We have it in capsule form and powder form. Don’t be scared away by the powder- it’s versatile and flavorless!
