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.

Aloe works on almost everything. But when I was a kid, I got in a wasp nest and my dad's chewing tobacco was the only thing that made it better.

Never heard of peppermint on sunburns. I have tried the aloe vera on sunburns. My grandma used to put vinegar on sunburns. She also used to blow smoke in my ear if OI had an ear ache. lol.
