William Osler, who was one of the founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital, once said, “The person who takes medicine must recover twice, once from the disease and once from the medicine.”
Herbal medicine has been around since the dawn of time, for it is the plants that have healed us and assisted in our evolution. Modern medicine is known for its quick acting effects, but equally as positive as some of the effects may be, it is the dark side that scares us, for it is the side effects that can sometimes be worse than the original ailment. We at Woodland Herbal focus on herbal medicine because it is gentler and kinder, yet it can be very effective without many side effects, if any at all. And, it was the original medicine, and to us, it still is.
We are very proud to announce that we have created a collection of six medicinal salves, known as Nature’s First Aid Kit, which includes some of our most potent and effective all natural topicals. This variety pack includes an Antibacterial, Antifungal, Anti-Inflammatory, Antiviral, Drawing, and Relief Salve, and they’re effective for a myriad of ailments, issues, discomforts, and situations that can arise in today's modern world.
Modern medicine has been around for 200 years, but herbal medicine has been around since the dawn of time. Each of our medicinal salves are infused with top quality herbs, extracted in moisturizing and healing fine oils, local organic beeswax, and are finished with a wide range of powerful essential oils. We always focus on medicinal strength, so a little goes a long way.
Below is a breakdown of what all goes into Nature’s First Aid Kit, with suggested uses and a list of ingredients. This all-encompassing first aid kit is small enough to be taken anywhere and versatile enough to help remedy hundreds of ailments. We thank Nature for every item sold by planting a local Ohio tree.
