The more oils you have at your disposal the better. But this might not be practical for those who travel and would like to have some on the go, or those on a limited budget.

  • Do not leave your first aid kit in the car. The heat will affect the potency of the oils.  Try to treat it like a phone or wallet and leave by the door, take it with you, bring back inside.
  • Keep plenty of sterile pads in your kit, for applying the oils.
  • Consider also adding a carrier oil such as apricot kernel oil, avocado or coconut oil, so that you are not applying essential oils directly to the skin.
  • As with all first aid kits, please routinely check that you have everything that you need in it and replace if necessary.
  • Consider doing a first aid course to enhance your first aid skills.
