ESSENTIALS FOR THE WELL-STOCKED MEDICINE CABINET

the well-stocked medicine cabinet

Cooler weather is just around the corner and flu season has already arrived. Is your medicine cabinet ready? Ours is… getting there. Our medicine cabinet is actually in a bit of a transition. While we still have some traditional medicines I am adding in more natural remedies and supplements. Here are what I believe to be the essentials for my family’s well-stocked medicine cabinet.

Traditional Medicines and Supplies

We still have traditional over-the-counter pain relievers and fever reducers for ourselves and the kiddos. I use them less often than in the past for myself and the children, but they are there when needed. There is also the typical stock of band-aids and thermometers. I don’t mess around with cheap bandages; rashes due to cheap adhesive are no fun. And like I said before, frugal isn’t cheap. Blogtober day 11 is here and we’re talking about my goals for well-stocked medicine cabinet.

Vitamins and Supplements

My husband is big on supplements; he takes a multi-vitamin, Aleve, glucosamine, Vitamin C (recently upgraded to Super C courtesy of Essential Rewards), and an OTC allergy medicine. The kids take multi-vitamin gummies, and recently I added these DHA gummies, which I need to replenish. I take these hair, skin, and nail gummies and Essentialzymes-4, which is wonderful, but I am terrible at remembering to take vitamins and supplements.

All-Natural Remedies for the Well-Stocked Medicine Cabinet

Since last winter I am a big believer in black elderberry, and try to keep it on hand as it never seems to be in stock at the local Neighborhood Market when we need it most! Any time I feel like cold-like symptoms appear I start popping those dissolvable tablets!

My husband has been taking apple cider vinegar daily for about a year now and swears by it. I have tried it a few times but just can’t seem to get over the taste and smell. Seriously considering the new gummies for myself. No sick days for this mama!

Oils for a Well-Stocked Medicine Cabinet

I love Thieves® for immune support and the smell! We have a roller in the oily shelf and keep a roller on the kitchen counter diluted with almond oil for the kids. I try to make it a habit to roll some down their spine on a daily basis.

There is also a roller of diluted lavender I use on boo-boos and behind their little ears at night. If you’ve read the blog or my Instagram for long you know that my son cut his hand this summer requiring surgery. He is healing well and I massage the lavender into his scar to help it stretch and continue to heal well.

I keep TummyGize™ (and am stocked up, again thanks to Essential Rewards) on hand for when the little ones have upset tummies. I use it on myself as well! This stuff works! We also give them MightyPro drink mix a few nights a week to help things in that department as well.

I also have R.C.™ and Ravintsara on-hand on the oily shelf. There are way too many oils on my wish list to mention them all, but I have a good, basic supply this frugal oiler feels confident using to support my family’s health with our modest budget and plan to add more every month.

I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t mention that new oilers no longer have to buy a starter kit to take advantage of the discount! You can simply place your first subscription order and get started earning loyalty rewards.
