Listen, I know Spring just got here, but just admit it that Summer will be here before we know it! And of course, with the warmer days we’re spending a lot more time outside! We love to go visit the creek or just play out in the backyard! But I’ve already killed too many ticks to count, pulled out a couple of splinters, dealt with scraped knees from falling, and the mosquitos are already out. So today I’m sharing 8 natural first aid kit supplies for the car!

8 Natural First Aid Kit Supplies
- Active Skin Repair: We use this for all the minor cuts and scrapes. Comes in gel or spray form. I keep the spray in our car.
- Motherlove Green Salve: This is used to help with any insect bites and other skin irritations.
- Green Goo Poison Ivy: If you do any hiking this is a must for poison ivy, oak, and sumac.
- Arnicare Gel: Use this for any muscle pain or stiffness when you’re out hiking.
- Arnica Montana: This is taken orally to help relieve any swelling from injuries.
- Insect Repellent: An easy, natural, effective insect spray repellent from Kindling Wild.
- Tweezers: We use these to remove splinters and ticks.
- Bandages: Keep these handy for the ones that need something to cover a scrape or minor cut.
There’s multiple ways you can store all of your supplies in your car. I usually shop my house first before I purchase anything new. I had a clear pouch from Old Navy one year that works great for this because I can see through it and it’s easy to clean if anything spills.
This pouch is small enough I just keep it in the console of our car. If I need to I will grab and toss in our diaper bag. It’s small enough that it doesn’t take up much extra space.
Here’s a few ideas of similar items if you don’t already have something on hand.
