It started when I packed for my honeymoon. My mother told me I could not take my own sheets. So I didn’t. Big mistake!
From then on, I always packed everything I would need to be comfortable.
When I had kids, though, the ballgame changed. Forget comfort. I needed to be prepared for accidents.
If you customarily use antipyretics or antibacterial ointment, then usually a drug store is just around the corner and open 24-7 to meet those needs. But for the homeopathic family, remedies are often unavailable.
What’s a homeopathic mama to do?
I pack the house! Well…almost. 🙂
I always include my basic top 100 and top 50 kits. I also include any remedies that my family may get a lot of use from on a regular basis. Then, I make a list of ailments that may befall us at the particular destination. For example, going to the beach, we may get stung by a jelly fish (urtica urens). Or up in the mountains of Peru, somebody may experience altitude sickness (cocoa). I make that list and research what the best remedies are to have on hand, and into the bag they go! I take a lot of remedies.
My husband, though, is not going to lug all those remedies around when he travels for business. The best I can do is put together a top ten pack – and that’s hard to narrow down!
I throw my index card of instructions and all those remedies into an old film bag to protect the remedies through x-ray (although the remedies are very hardy and would likely withstand x-ray), and he’s off.
So far, he hasn’t had need of any remedies. But I feel much more at peace knowing he’s protected and prepared in the event something comes up.
