Winter Medicine Cabinet

It’s about time to be sure the wellness supplies are on hand.

I was thinking through this today.

We always have

Calendula ointment–for scrapes and skin issues

Dr. Christophers Bone and Tissue –a type of ointment I learned about before my surgery last fall

Arnica ointment–for bruises–not open skin

Homeopathy tablets for various issues (not sure going into which ones and how to use would be a good idea. It’s one of those things you have to learn on your own to have a handle on it.)

Vitamin C


Elderberry Syrup–I’ve been making it the past couple of winters. We take it every day in the winter–a teaspoon or two. If we’re sick or are going out in public we take more!

I need to get some more collodial silver and I want to get the silver ointment.

I also love to have some essential oils on hand–frankincense, thyme, oregano, a thieves type blend, and some blends I found at Hopewell. We really like this company and have had an excellent experience with them.


I like to keep fresh garlic around in the winter too. Here’s some great ways to use it to promote health.

I feel like I must be missing something that I like to have around. If I think about it, I’ll update this post.

Oh! Activated charcoal is something I forgot to include. We use it if we feel something like a flu coming on or if something we ate is disagreeing with us very badly.

What do you like to have on hand?

    Thank you for linking to the fresh garlic uses. We often swallow a spoonful of minced garlic, but I had never heard of using a press, like a transdermal application. Can’t wait to try it! I was diagnosed with one of the 150 autoimmune disorders in January and am looking for immune-boosting tips like this. Thank you!
