One of the things I always have in my bug out bag, hiking pack, tackle box or range bag is a good first aid kit. You never know when you will need it or someone near you might. Recently I was turned onto a new spot of first aid gear to check out. Green Goo First Aid Salve.
According to the Green Goo by Sierra Sage web site, “Green Goo First Aid salve is a power packed homeopathic formula that helps aid the body's own healing abilities. Replacing over 20 traditionally used first aid items, this salve is the first defense for cuts, scrapes, blisters, sunburns, chafing, poison ivy and cracked hands & feet. It helps to relieve the itch and sting of insect bites and can be used as a wound dressing. First Aid salve is a perfect all-purpose, carry-it-with-you powerhouse. It helps with Insect Bites, Cuts and Scrapes, Cracked Hands, Poison Ivy, Cold Sores, Sunburns, Chapped lips, Blisters, Ingrown toenails and Chafing.”
I have used it on some scrapes and small cuts and it does seem to help and relieve the discomfort. While this is not a one fix for all first aid kit it is a great addition to any outdoors kit and handy to keep in the house. Green Goo first aid salve replaces over 25 items in your First Aid kit like Neosporin, Hydrocortisone, Calamine lotion for Poison Ivy, any anti-itch, anti-fungal creams. We all know space is a premium in the pack so having a product like this really helps out lightening the load.
Green Goo is safe for you, your children and your pets including but not limited to dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, horses, cattle and I am sure ferrets and hamsters probably do ok with it.
Made from natural and organic ingredients like olive and sunflower oil, plantain, chickweed, chaparral, St. John’s wort, yarrow, sage, beeswax. It also includes essential oils of lavender and rosemary, it even smells good.
Besides first aid products Green Goo has a line-up of other products to fit every aspect of your life. All natural soaps, natural deodorants, skin care products, sunblock, tattoo care and even stuff for pets are some of the products they offer.
I have been pretty happy with the samples I have used. I thought it was just for first aid but realized that while it is a great first aid kit addition it has many other uses. You should head over to the website, check out their offerings and give them a try.
