    Okay, how deep does your medical supply cache go? I have a little over 2 months of my prescription drugs on hand and if I ever felt the need to have more i can just go pay cash for them up to the limit of my prescription. How about emergency medical supplies? I have bandaging materials and things like peroxide, bacitracin and other creams and salves. No surgical stuff though. As an EMT I could have much more advanced equipment but i do not.

    Prescribed is tough. Other meds can be found at farm supply stores. Bandaging and peroxide are easily available. Go natural.

    plus the usual assortment of ibuprofen, tylenol, aspirin, NYQUIL, flonase... we do have a HUMUNGUS supply of that stuff.

    Oh we have plenty of natural my wife makes a dandelion salve, a habanero salve, an arnica salve, and a replacement for commercial vapo rub. As well as soaps, lotions, bath bombs, shower steamers, sugar scrubs and laundry detergent. Other than dish soap and stain remover for laundry you won't find commercial soap products in our house.

    Sometimes I think Ivory soap and homemade soap from wood ashes might be why the hairline recedes so much.IDK.

    In order to make REAL soap you have to use lye and fats like lard or vegetable oils. Without lye you don't get the chemical reaction of saponification and then you don't really have soap.

    Take a look at the ingredients in most commercially manufactured soaps, how many of those ingredients seem natural to you? Most are chemicals created in a lab. In homemade soap most are made of ingredients that most people know what they are.
