Apple Cider Vinegar – must be organic/raw/”with the mother” (will appear cloudy). Can be used to disinfect wounds or surfaces. Do not use full strength, dilute 1 part ACV to 4-5 parts distilled water.
Aloe Vera – used topically to soothe burns, cuts and scrapes. Also effective on insect bites and hot spots.
Hydrogen Peroxide – can be used to induce vomiting if necessary (check with poison control on when to induce vomiting, it’s not always appropriate).
Grapefruit seed extract – GSE – great as a disinfectant and a natural antibiotic. If taken internally, be sure to dilute it (roughly 8-10 drops in a glass of water).
Slippery Elm and Marshmallow Root – each of these herbs will coat the digestive tract and soothe; great for digestive issues such as diarrhea.
