I stopped by Yogi Tea Headquarters in Springfield, Oregon today.  After buzzing the doorbell I was welcomed inside, out of the rain.  They don’t give tours of the building, but offered me a handful of sample tea packets to try.  I took my time investigating each type, but ended up taking every kind I think.  Pictured are new varieties I’ve never seen on store shelves before.  You can find Yogi teas by the box at nearly every health food shop.  They are delicious.  I’m grateful for the hookup.  It paid off to stop, and inquire.  These will go into my EDC bag immediately for later consumption.  But I got two of their Roasted Dandelion Spice Detox formula, so I will have to drink that tonight.

Update:  I went back for this picture of the free sample bowl at headquarters.  I scored 11 more packets from Yogi.  Visit them in Springfield, OR for a hook up.

skin ointment“It rubs the lotion on its skin.  It does this whenever it is told.” – The Silence of the Lambs

Following my recent bike accident, I’ve used a few ointments to heal my skin, and relieve minor aches and pains.  Mostly I’m trying to minimize scaring.  I have enough, and bright pink isn’t a good color on me.

I’m covered in purple and green bruises.  For sore muscles I’m using Tiger Balm Red Extra Strength.  This pain relieving ointment really does work, so I don’t need to take any pills.  It helps my muscles relax, so I can go about my business.  Plus, the potent menthol smell is soothing.  A little dab of this stuff goes a long way.  Try it out.

To heal my road rash and cuts I’m using Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment.  I got it from my local health food store for $7.99.  It’s a good buy because it is blended with natural oils enriched with Vitamin E, and Lavender Oil.  I love this product.  It is fragrance/dye free too.  This product stays on my skin, and prevents my sexy scabs from falling off early.  Tea Tree oil heals dry, chapped skin quickly.

Finally, I’ve been using organic 100% Hawaiian Moon Aloe.  You can use this cream topically for many things, from sore muscles, to chapped lips.  Aloe Vera is a miracle worker.  It hydrates deep into skin.  According to their website, “natural Aloe Vera contains six antiseptic agents that fight infection;  three analgesics to reduce pain and at least three anti-inflammatory agents.”  I also drink Aloe Vera juice, and water regularly to help with digestion. 

These three products are dynamic.  See what they can do for you.  Thanks for visiting Survival Bros.  Your likes, comments, and shares are greatly appreciated.  It helps build this emergency preparedness community.  Peace.
