Homeopathic Remedies For Bug Bites and Stings

One thing we like to keep in our first aid kits are various homeopathic remedies so we are never caught off guard while camping, traveling or enjoying the outdoors.

"Homeopathic is a system of medicine who's principles are even older than Hippocrates. It seeks to cure in ordinance with natural laws of healing and uses medicines made from natural substances: animal, vegetable, and mineral." ~ Homeopathic Medicine At Home (We really recommend having this book on hand along with your remedies)

If Homeopathy is new to you we encourage you to learn more about it. Our two families have used it for years and years. We love the results, it works well for us and there's no side effects. Disclaimer we are not doctors, we advise you to follow your intuition and if you feel you need to check with your doctor then please do so. Follow the directions on the bottle.

Bug Bites - Carol's son Josh is a delicacy to mosquitoes. They love feasting on him. We have found through the years if he keeps Thuja on hand when he is out hiking or fire fighting if he needs to he can takes a few to alleviate the itch and discomfort from his bug bites and help keep the mosquitoes at bay.

Bee, Hornet and Wasp Stings - Apis, Calendula, Hypericum, Ledum & Cantharis.
Note: On bee, hornets and wasp stings: If victim is allergic to insect stings rush to nearest hospital emergency room. Meanwhile, give Apis in the highest potency you have (Homeopathic Medicine At Home)

Spider bits - Carbolicum acidum, Crotalus horridus, Echinacea, Lachesis and Oxalicum Acidum.
Note: On poisonous spiders apply an ice pack to the bite to slow the spread of poison and rush victim to nearest hospital emergency room. Meanwhile, give one of the remedies mentioned here. Once again this warning is from Homeopathic Medicine At Home.

If you use homeopathy in your home what are your favorite remedies?
