Place 2 drops into another bottle that contains ~250ml of water, less or more is fine. Seal and shake this bottle vigorously, as this will medicate the contents of the bottle, which can then be sipped for each subsequent dose. This is particularly effective for conditions where repeated dosing is required.
Repeat this process of preparing a fresh bottle each day, if required.
We recommend that you do not add to milk, juice, or breast milk. In this case and especially with infants, please create the remedy in the bottle as advised above. Shake and take a syringe or teaspoon to dose directly into their mouth.
The frequency of dosing is more important than the quantity of the remedy in Homeopathy. Enough to wet the mouth is considered a good dose.
Under the tongue:
You can dose 1-2 drops directly under the tongue. This means the doses won’t go as far as if diluted and sipped from a water bottle so keep that in mind for longevity of your kit.
When choosing a remedy, first note the important symptoms experienced by the patient and then select a medicine with a similar “symptom picture”. A very small dose of this remedy is then administered to stimulate healing.
How often to dose:
With homeopathy, we aim to match the frequency of dosing with the intensity of the condition. For intense conditions, such as a fever or a burn, dosing frequently, such as every 15 minutes to an hour is ideal.
For moderate conditions, dosing every 4 hours is preferred. As the condition starts to improve, slow down or consider stopping dosing.
Our first aid kits are designed for the treatment of simple and acute complaints. In the case of serious accidents or emergencies, seek professional help immediately. Chronic ailments (eczema is a good example of this we have come up often) will require a classical treatment with a Naturopath or Homeopath. Consultations with Paige can be made here.
The potencies of the medicines in this kit are typically stronger than those bought in a health food store or online. In a First Aid prescription, these stronger potencies are often much more effective. As these medicines are strong, they are not to be used for prolonged periods of time, except under the guidance of a homeopath.
These remedies are kept in a high concentration of alcohol, which will preserve them for a minimum of 2 years.
Please store out of direct sunlight, in a cool place away from electronic devices.
Homeopathic medicines are considered safe to use from newborn, pregnancy and of all ages and will typically not contraindicate the medicines prescribed by your doctor.
If you are concerned, please book an appointment with a Homeopath or seek medical advice. Consultations with Paige can be made here.
The TGA has not found Homeopathy to be safe or effective. It is a TGA requirement that each kit is dispensed with a consultation. Your FREE consultation must be booked at the time of your purchase.
How to take a dose:
Do not touch the remedy with your hands or fingers.
Remove the cap of the selected remedy bottle and carefully tip 2-3 pills into the lid, use that to tip 2-3 pills into your mouth. Let the pills dissolve under your tongue. Avoid eating or drinking for 10 minutes before and after the remedy. Repeat every 30 minutes until you see an improvement. Stop once symptoms improve.
Why should you not touch the remedies?
Do not take pills onto your palm before taking them, as touching medicines reduces the potency of the medicines. It also spoils the medicines by exposing them to any potential unhygienic conditions. Always take the medicines by using the cap of the medicine bottle or using a clean spoon.
