I would like to include an herbal venom remedy, herbs to help stop bleeding, maybe a bottle of rinse water and an instant cold pack.
Would anyone like to chime in on this? Will herbal remedies stored in a little box outside make it through a hot summer?
Things that would keep well and serve your purpose are: activated charcoal powder as drawing agent, bottle of water for rinse or making paste w charcoal, yarrow flower powder as hemostatic, long strip of cloth to use as sling or tourniquet, Motherwort tincture (excellent for 'mothering' calming, decreasing panic). For me, I would also include an allergic reaction blend as that always seems to be my issue. My blend at present is Red Clover, Ragweed, Goldenrod, Lobelia and Licorice root. Ragweed works well on its own too (tincture of preflowering herb). Tincture and charcoal should keep well, salves will not in the heat thus the recommendation for charcoal instead of plantain. A sturdy stick to use as splint or cane in each quad might also be of use. 40 acres sounds huge! I just got done planting 2 city lots and it took me a week! 40 acres!!!
