Natural families like natural remedies and non-toxic ingredients. Typically their medicine chests look a lot different than one you find in a more mainstream home. I have yet to see a Natural First Aid Kit at my local grocer though so if you want to make your own…here are a few ideas. You will be prepared and you will be using only natural and safe products on your family.
Most people carry five to 10 keys with them whenever they go out. On your key ring you might have several keys for the house, one or two more for the car and a few for the office or a friend's house. Your key ring is a clear demonstration of just how ubiquitous lock technology is: You probably interact with locks dozens of times every week. The main reason we use locks everywhere is that they provide us with a sense of security. But in movies and on television , spies , detectives and burglars can open a lock very easily, sometimes using only a couple of paper clips. This is a sobering thought, to say the least: Is it really possible for someone to open a lock so easily?
Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Creek Stewart of Willow Haven Outdoor. The term ‘Bugging Out’ refers to the decision to abandon your home due to an unexpected emergency situation–whether a natural disaster or one caused by man. A ‘Bug Out Bag’ is a pre-prepared survival kit designed to sustain you through the journey to your destination once you’ve decided to ‘Bug Out’ in the event of an emergency evacuation. Typically, the Bug Out Bag (BOB) is a self-contained kit designed to get you through at least 72 hours.

DIY Kit Price varies An easy way to think about the necessary contents of a first-aid kit is to break it up into two categories: it should have bandages and it should have medicine. For a bare-bones kit, Wedmore recommends plenty of gauze, including at least one roll of Kerlix bandages and some non-adhesive gauze. A handful of butterfly bandages, different-size bandages and an ace bandage should be included as well. As far as medication goes, Tylenol or a generic equivalent, an anti-inflammatory such as aspirin, an antihistamine such as Benadryl and diarrhea medication would be sufficient for most short-term needs. A few pairs of rubber gloves, paramedic's scissors, alcohol pads, Neosporin, lots of duct tape and a CPR face shield should finish the kit off.
A bandana is another one of those things that is useful for a thousand things but nothing specific. It’s right up there with duct tape and rope. The things only weigh a couple ounces, they are dirt cheap , and are a must have in your Bug Out Bag or Urban Survival Gear . Here is just a short list of possible uses for a bandana . 1.

This is a guest post from NF community member Dakao, who trains in all kinds of awesomely nerdy things like weapon making, martial arts, and parkour. I’m fascinated with the concept of parkour but haven’t tried it yet, so I asked Dakao to put together a guide for people who want to get started but don’t know how. Take it away Dakao!

During a road trip last year, I spent a night at a hotel in Richmond, Virginia. I hadn’t exercised in a few days, and had no desire to go find out if they had a gym on site…so I made up my own workout while IN the hotel room, using nothing but myself and the room’s furniture. In just 20 minutes I had warmed up, exercised my entire body, and stretched out afterward. Now, although I did this in a hotel room, it doesn’t mean it won’t work in other places, like your own bedroom for example.
