DIY Family-friendly First Aid Kit + Win 1 of 3 $100 VISA Gift Cards

Brought to you by Mundipharma®.

I’m one of those people who likes to be prepared. Probably a little overly so. I overthink everything and like to write lists. So, it will probably come as no surprise to you that I also am all about the first aid kit. We have one in the garage and another in the laundry. {I do need to buy a fire blanket for the kitchen though, been meaning to do that one for a while. I’m not perfect, forgive me! ????}.

I didn’t have one for my car though, and I’d been meaning to do that for a while, so I put this one together with some advice from the team at mundicare and put it together in a blog post for you. It’s just a small kit with the essentials for any mishaps that might happen while you’re out and about. This would easily work for at home too.

If you’re not familiar with the mundicare brand, let me quickly give you the run down; they make a range of natural first aid products with Australia’s natural healer, Melaleuca Oil {also known as tea tree oil}. I can remember as a kid that my Mum would use tea tree oil for pretty much anything. It removed stickers from things we shouldn’t have stuck them on. It was used to get rid of the dreaded nits. And it was even used when we’d had a spill and scraped ourselves. mundicare’s Melaleuca oil comes from plants that are harvested and refined only once a year in Byron Bay.

You don’t need a fancy box or anything special for your kit, I’ve used something that most families have lying around at home; an empty wipes container. I grabbed some alphabet stickers from the local bargain shop, and simply stuck Fix It! on the side, cos that’s what a first aid kit does, right? It FIXES all the things.

Take a look inside…

Here’s what you can put inside your kit:

    • Plasters {you need around 20, in different shapes and sizes}
    • mundicare Burnaid Gel
    • Cotton tips {place these in a little snap-lock bag}
    • Gloves {powder-free if possible}
    • Wipes
    • Scissors
    • mundicare Itch Relief {this is my personal must-have because kids get itchy!}
    • mundicare Antiseptic Spray
    • Antibacterial hand sanitiser
    • Cotton swabs
    • Instant cold pack
    • mundicare Skin Relief {for chafing that happens when you’re at the beach or exercising}
    • Tweezers
    • Saline
    • CPR barrier kit

mundicare ITCH RELIEF

| This itch relief comes in both a gel and spray. We love the spray, because we live in an area with a lot of mozzies and midgies, so it’s essential for the kids. The spray means we can treat the itch really quickly {no touching required!} and the kids can go back to playing.

mundicare ANTISEPTIC | This comes in the gel and spray, but also in a purified 100% Melaleuca Oil {nature’s antiseptic}. These antiseptics all help cleanse, soothe and support healing. They’re a must have for first aid kits, and the Melaleuca oil is actually sourced near to me at Byron Bay {fun fact!}.

mundicare BURNAID | Unfortunately, I’ve had to use this one personally when I’ve burnt myself cooking, and they help a whole lot, so I won’t ever be without them in future. The Burnaid comes in a gel, spray, and also in a handy dressing. They cool burns, while soothing them, and help relieve pain.

mundicare SKIN RELIEF | Tell me you’ve done the surf to car walk and ended up with chafing too? My kids often get it after a long time in the water, so this product is a great one to have in the car or at home. It comes in a powder to absorb excess moisture, which helps protect against chafing, or a cream which is great for soothing any skin irritations.

  1. Hugs, hugs always make me feel better. Its the first thing my kids want when they hurt themselves too

  2. I’d pop a lollipop or three in the box too. As much as chocolate makes me feel better, lollipop’s would survive being stuck in the car for months and not be all slodgy. Hopefully I’d never have to use the kit for real emergencies, but for fixing scrapes and itches, a lollipop alongside the Mundicare products would be a winner with my kids.

  3. Medically I can’t go wrong with Pawpaw cream! Personally hugs from my 6 year old make the world suddenly a better place!

  4. When someone asks me ‘is everything fine’? It suddenly feels me better and I feel like a lot better with a strong support system behind.

  5. When walking in town with worries on your mind and you make eye contact with someone walking passed and they smile at you….. that brightens my day every time. A smile a day keeps the worries at bay.

  6. What always makes me feel better and takes all my worries away? Simply being with my family with lots of cuddles all round! <3

  7. Speaking to my neighbour Angie. She brews me a hot cup of espresso and listens patiently for hours sometimes. I take her flowers, and a diamond brooch for Christmas. What a gal!

  8. i always feel good helping people reach for groceries on the top shelf that can’t reach I get my lanky husband to get the required items for shoppers down we have a chat with people and keep shopping helps them and we feel happy afterwards. Actually talking out worries have a flip a coin heads or tails for decision making and no over thinking once decision is made.and a cuddle always helps hurts and worries

  9. A family cure all Chicken and vegetable soup with loads of fresh herbs and celery leaves. Passed down for 5 generations, my adult children still expect it at the first sign of illness. Comforting and the touch of love makes the difference.

  10. The sound of one of my cats purr,
    As I softly stroke their fur,
    A playful bite dont make me scream,
    For I have my Manuka wound cream.

    A loving hug from a dear friend,
    Always helps my heart to mend,
    Gentle words of comfort spoken,
    Are forever given as more than a token.

    The small things I find mean the most,
    Like melted butter on warm toast,
    They all add up at the end of the day,
    Healing my heart in a special way.

  11. A cup of tea, a warm hug and a fresh cupcake. If you could combine those things and turn it into a medication, it would bring peace to the world!

  12. What always makes me feel better? So many things…petting my cat, or any cat or dog for that matter! Hugging my husband, going for a walk, a nice chat with a friend or even a friendly stranger, a good glass of red wine, simply thinking about all the wonderful things that are my life.

  13. When I see my son smiling looking at me, his boundless energy makes my soul fill with glee. When hubby does some chores without me asking, gives my body time to relax without multi-tasking. They make me feel loved and better everyday, as well as some cheese with wine to wash it away.

  14. A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down..
    A good laugh and shiver helps the smiles go around..
    And a good ALOE vera helps the swelling go down…

  15. A coffee ground and coconut scrub, not only a great way to use up left over coffee grounds but your helping the environment as well! Plus you smell amazing afterwards!

  16. I need my grandchildren in my first aid kit – they fix all my worries and hurts and always make me feel better. A smile, a few gibberish words, a hug, a posy of weeds, even using my hairbrush to brush the dog, these all make my woes disappear.

  17. A Cuddle from my dogs, as they love me unconditionally, my adult kids only love me if they want money off me

  18. Giving my furball canine mate, Otto, hugs, belly rubs and kisses. That works wonders for my mental health and outlook.

  19. A walk on the beach no matter the weather somehow puts whatever ails me into perspective and a windy day can even seem to blow my cares away….

  20. A big fat Jack cuddle.(my 23year old son). He gives the most loving hugs I’ve every had and they always make me feel cured. Even if there is nothing wrong to begin with.

  21. The company of a good friend who can just sit with me in silence or offer a willing ear always makes me feel better. A smile, a laugh shared is the best medicine.

  22. A nice hot cup of tea
    makes me feel better instantly
    maybe its a magical drink
    tea makes me stop, relax and think
    My family fix my worries and hurts by loving unconditionally
    so grateful to have them there for me
    life is great
    tea and family to celebrate

  23. I always feel better after a walk at the beach – is as if the waves wash away anything troubling me. If I’m actually sick, I make an amazing chicken noodle soup and snuggle up with my hubby and/or my cat and and binge on netflix and tea.
