With the start of a New year we are all looking forward to positive changes and better developments in ourselves for the year ahead.
This process of renewing ourselves or looking ahead for the best takes on many forms, for some it could be new year’s resolutions for weight loss and staying fit, for some it could be to stop drinking and smoking it could be becoming healthier naturally or it could be to give away old stuff and give way for newer and better things.
If you have made a resolution to give importance to your health, there is never a better time to replace your medicines and get yourself a Natural medicine cabinet makeover. You can start off by taking a closer look at what sort of medicines is inside your cabinet. Even what may seem to be the most safest items can contain chemicals that would be doing you more harm than good.
Given below are my four tips for a Natural Medicine Cabinet Makeover.

2. Arnica – Do yourself a favor by making sure your new Natural medicine Cabinet Makeover contains Arnica. Accidents, bumps and bruises are a part of everyday life, to take care of these severe mishaps Arnica is a gem that everyone should become familiar with and have them readily available.

The Calendula plants healing powers even extend to healing different wounds and burns. One way that it works is by reducing inflammation in and around the wound and speeding up healing.
