My Crunchy First Aid Kit – for my purse!

When Annabelle was a baby I always carried around a diaper bag packed with anything and everything. As she’s gotten older the diaper bag has disappeared as we’ve needed fewer, and fewer things (I’ve learned the hard way to always keep an extra change of clothes in the car because you just never know when something might spill!).


As I’ve ventured out into carrying purses that accommodate less and backpacks (I can’t even tell you how happy I am these are fashionable now!) I’ve had to pick and choose what makes the cut. Bumps and bruises happen more nowadays to my more adventurous 4 year old then they did before so having a portable first aid kit has become important. It may not look like your average first aid kit but it’s everything we need- for now.


Here’s what’s in my crunchy first aid kit:


Lycopodium Clavatum by Boiron

This homeopathic remedy works wonders for upset tummies – especially for bloated tummies and gas. Eating out doesn’t always agree with us so this is a great one to keep!


Arnica Montana by Boiron

Another homeopathic remedy that’s a must have for kids that fall a lot. It works well for pain to it’s great to have on hand for a scraped bloody knee or falling of while climbing a tree! As a matter of fact it even works well for muscle and back pain.


Nux Vomica by Standard Homeopathic

Thankfully we haven’t had to use this one on my daughter yet but I keep it handy just in case. It helps relieve nausea pretty quickly.


Lavender Essential Oil by Young Living

Lavender is considered by many to be the Swiss Army Knife of oils because it’s so versatile. It works well for calming an anxious child, rubbing a little bit on a scrape can help prevent infection until you get somewhere where you can properly clean it, it helps calm spider bites- it helps with almost anything you can think of.


Stress Away Essential Oil Roll-On by Young Living

Ok so this one might be more for mommy that for baby but it’s still nice to have. Just rub a little on you earlobes, temples and neck or if you have a very anxious child you can try it on them too to help them relax. Try applying up and down the spine and on wrists for a little all natural stress relief.

I don't think the title of your article matches the content lol. Just kidding, mainly because I had some doubts after reading the article.

Can you be more specific about the content of your article? After reading it, I still have some doubts. Hope you can help me.

As someone who is also Mexican and white with a lighter skin tone I resonated with this story deeply. I always was terrible at speaking about my experiences and my family’s experiences, the discriminations they faced was something I never even wanted to talk about, but this story put those perspectives in perfectly. There were so many similarities I saw in my life, the day of Trump’s inauguration I spent the day crying in my father’s arms and the very last passage, “On the day of Trump’s inauguration, my mother looked at me tearfully and said, “I’m so glad you look white.”” although very different from my experience and one of your own personal ones, it resonated so deeply in a way which I cannot explain. I can only imagine that it would resonate at least in a similar way to others without such experiences, giving way to a different perspective for everyone.This article was written so perfectly overall.
