I am so inspired and passionate about herbal medicine solutions for everyone at home. We have been running our services for many years and now we are developing our concept of herbal first aid solutions that you can enjoy when you come to our free naturopathic clinics in Festivals and events. We also offer this service to surfing communities globally and want to share the love more. Come see us at Splendour in the grass for your herbal needs and supplies.
Today I want to share with you whats in our herbal first aid kit that we offer at Festivals and events. This service is now 100% by donation and you choose what you offer us in return for this wonderful first aid given to you by our team of well trained and qualified crew. This service runs alongside our free naturopatic clinics where we give you advice. Now you can have your small injuries seen to and reduce your risk factors for illness at events even more. Simple and effective.
What we do?
Our aim in these services is to offer a buffer zone between your injury and the need for conventional medical attention. So, we aim to get to your wounds fast when they are tiny and prevent further deterioration that may result in infections and painful inflammation. So, we help you mostly with the following injuries. Cuts, blisters, scrapes and small skin wounds. Rashes and abrasions on the skin. Bruises, painful and inflamed skin and injuries from being hit or falling. We also offer internal assistance with shock,stress ,food poisoning and nausea. We often mix and match the herbs to get a really specific result for the patient and thats why we have these choices in the range. Everyone is different and we like to look after you and help you feel better asap.
Of course we have our full range of herbal medicines, skin balms and sprays to use in this service too, So don’t be surprised if we give you a little shoulder massage, spinal massage or rub your knees or feet to help you feel better.
We are a service that works quietly and naturally to help you stay well in festivals and events. We have been running this service at Festivals we attend and also offer it in some surfing communities. We are always happy to train you and to supply you with any herbs that you need for your herbal first aid service at home or for your community.
We use padding, medical tape, bandages and thats about it. We compress herbs onto injuries and we seal injuries to reduce risk factors for infections, bruising and inflammation. We are not the only ones in these events offering first aid, You are free to go to the medics and regular services if you wish. We are offering pure 100% herbal first aid and old fashioned naturopathic techniques to help you stay well. We refer you to your Doctor or the medical teams in events if we know you need that. We have all networking in place to get you the best help fast tracked if needed and if its simple and a small injury then we can help you. If we offer you internal solutions then we will make a note of any medications you are on and we will offer you a small dose of the herbs to help alleviate the situation and make you more comfortable.
We have small 50ml bottles of these herbs available for $10 each in the events so that you can take some home and use later. Larger sizes are available in our formulas and we have our free naturopathic advice to help you too.
We will be at Splendour in the grass next week and hope to see you there for our free clinics and our herbal first aid service.
