Baking soda, because it's good for pretty much everything, and Aloe is another of my fave. Let's say if I was on a deserted island, these are the two things that I would like to have with me.

Great podcast - I wish I'd known about the arnica two weeks ago! It was nice getting confirmation that eating onion and garlic helps keep the mosquitos away.

We always had aloe vera plants around when I was growing up for burns of any kind, but I have never heard of pepermint for sunburn! I will have to try that.

I always have aloe vera, arnica cream and tea tree oil around for a variety of first aid. We have a homeopathy kit that has also been helpful. I am always learning:-)

Great podcast! I believe honey can solve just about any problem. When I feel a cold developing, I use make tea (from tea leaves, not the packaged stuff), mix in the juice of half a lemon, and a big dollop of honey. It cures it almost immediately. I also take it for sore throats and it helps so much. Thanks! lovelyluckymegs@yahoo.com

We keep Aloe plants for burns. If you don't have expensive Kerlix wrap in an emergency, Saran wrap (or generic kind) is the perfect covering for a burn after it is cooled completely.
