Absolute MUSTS for First Aid Kits! Give us a call with any questions you may have.

Medihoney

This unique product whereby the bees harvest their pollen from the Manuka Plant is now a staple at surgical centers, and here’s why:  

  • The healing process is accelerated .
  • It’s antibacterial properties are far better than your OTC antibacterial creams. 
  • Instead of targeting only a few bacteria, it makes the wound bed inhospitable to all bacteria by dehydrating them. 
  • Unlike Neosporin, it is hypoallergenic. 
  • Doesn’t spoil
  • Keeps the wound sealed and moist, which promotes healing.

We’ve found the best price for this product here.

Benzoin Compound Tincture

Also known as a medical varnish,  this substance has several excellent applications.

  • For bandaging in areas that may get wet or moist, paint a strip of it on either side of the laceration.  Let it dry until it becomes tacky.  Your bandaging will stick well enough to allow the closing of the wound, should you so choose. 
  • When examining your feet during a hike for potential blister spots, if the skin is red, but not broken,  painting some BCT over that area will be like adding several layers of flexible skin.

Tweezers

Tweezers that magnify and light up where you need to use them.

You’ve no doubt had an irritating splinter that you could feel, but not see.  These tweezers will easily allow you to find and extract not only splinters, but any debris that needs to be removed from a wound. 

Sting Sticks

This product will the bite or sting from a yellow jacket, honey bee, scorpion, etc., etc. from a roaring pain to a dull thud instantaneously. We recommend removing the swabs from the packaging BEFORE you need them. That packaging does NOT want you to get inside!
