• Echinacea tincture
• Rescue Remedy
• Herbal salve
• Adhesive dressings
• Homeopathic arnica
• Lavender essential oil
• Tea tree essential oil

Survival Kit for the Car

A snowstorm strikes unexpectedly. A flash flood washes away the road. Ten people are injured in a multicar crash on the expressway. These are things that happen every day in every part of the world. To be prepared to handle them, here’s what you should keep in your car:

Ax. To chop wood. Can be of aid in constructing a makeshift shelter.

Blanket. In case you need to bivouac in the cold. Also useful in the treatment of shock.
