    Prepping basics: Essential tips on how to prepare for a long-term water supply disruption

    05/28/2024 // HRS Editors // 20 Views

    Having an assortment of survival gear is nice, but when SHTF, you will also need clean drinking water in your stockpile.Before disaster strikes, learn how to store and purify water for your daily needs. (h/t to BackdoorSurvival.com)
    Clean water is something that many people, especially non-preppers, take for granted. When dealing with an emergency, you will have one less thing to worry about if you know that you have access to clean drinking water, so it's essential to learn how to find, store and purify water for your stockpile.
    The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends storing at least one gallon of water per person and pet, per day, for a minimum of three days. However, preppers know that you might need more than that when SHTF.
    A more reasonable recommendation is that you store enough water for at least two weeks. That means if you are prepping for two people, you would need 28 gallons. This much water should cover your basic needs for drinking, food preparation and hygiene. (Related: HRS solutions: Must-have survival drinks for your pantry.)
    DIY water storage

    To save money on water storage, you can start your stockpile by filling thoroughly washed plastic or glass containers with tap water and sealing them tightly.
    Follow these steps to store water for emergency use:

    1. Thoroughly clean plastic bottles and jugs with dishwashing soap and water. Rinse them well to get rid of any residual soap.
    2. Sanitize the containers by adding a solution of one teaspoon of unscented liquid household chlorine bleach to one quart of water. Make sure that the bleach you are using is fresh.
    3. Swish the sanitizing solution in the containers to cover all interior surfaces. Sanitize the lids and caps as well.
    4. After sanitizing the containers and caps, thoroughly rinse out the bleach solution with clean water.
    5. Wear latex or nitrile gloves to maintain sanitation and avoid contaminating the caps by touching the inside of them with your fingers. Fill all sanitized containers to the top with tap water.
    6. Add two drops of non-scented liquid household chlorine bleach to the water, then tightly close the containers using the original caps.
    7. Label the outside of the bottles with the date using a permanent marker.
    8. Store the containers in a cool, dark place.

    As a precaution, rotate your water supply every six months to a year. Dump the water, re-sanitize the jugs and start the process all over. If you have the space, mark the jugs as "non-potable" and save the water for non-drinking emergency purposes.
    Where to get high-quality water filters

    The Health Ranger Store is committed to helping you prepare for any emergency and ensuring that you have a convenient means of filtering water after SHTF.
    That’s why we’re proud to introduce products like the AquaPail Water Filter and the Berkey PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements.
    The AquaPail Water Filter is a must-have for your prepping stockpile.
    AquaPail is the world's only Gravity-Fed Emergency Water Filter with "end-of-life" testing. This means that the DuraFlo™ Water Filter used in the AquaPail has been tested and certified by top U.S. independent laboratories to establish the water filter’s "end-of-life," or its actual usage capacity.
    Aquapails are available in 3 sizes:

    • Small - 1,100 gallons = Equivalent of one person's total water needs for one year
    • Medium - 3,300 gallons = Equivalent to three people's total water needs for one year
    • Large - 5,500 gallons = Equivalent to five people's total water needs for one year

    Berkey PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements (Set of 2 Filters) are designed to be used with Black Berkey water purification elements to adsorb unwanted elements found in drinking water such as fluoride, arsenic V and pre-oxidized arsenic III, along with other residual heavy metal ions.
    Note that high levels of fluoride, arsenic and heavy metals may reduce the capacity and efficiency of Berkey PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements.

    DIY survival solution: Create activated charcoal at home

    05/29/2024 // HRS Editors // 120 Views


    Tags: Activated Charcoal, alternative medicine, Charcoal, detoxification, emergency stockpile, goodhealth, homesteading, how-to, natural cures, natural health, natural medicine, off grid, preparedness, prepper, prepper pantry, prepping, prepping supplies, remedies, SHTF, survival, survival stockpile, tips



    Activated charcoal has many survival uses, such as filtering water. You can buy activated charcoal for you survival stockpile. Alternatively, you can make it at home.One pound of activated charcoal costs $12 to $15 at the grocery, while making your own costs less than $1 per pound. For $20, you can have enough activated charcoal on hand for bartering or personal use after disaster strikes. (h/t to PrimalSurvivor.net)
    You can make your charcoal to activate, but the extreme temperatures it takes to burn hardwood down to charcoal make it very time-consuming and energy-intensive. Instead, it's better to buy and use a 20 lb. bag of hardwood charcoal.
    Supplies you need to make activate charcoal

    Here are the items you will need to activate charcoal at home.
    Calcium chloride/Pickle Crisp
    If you're making a lot of activated charcoal, it's more economical to buy calcium chloride in larger tubs. Alternatively, you can use the Ball Pickle Crisp sold at grocery stores, but it might be more expensive. If you don't have calcium chloride, you can use lemon juice as an alternative.
    Charcoal
    You can use your preferred brand of hardwood charcoal briquettes. You will need pure hardwood charcoal, so don't get charcoal that has been soaked in lighter fluid or has other additives.
    Glass jar
    If you don't have a glass jar, use a non-aluminum mixing pot with a solid lid or a regular canning jar. This is important because mixing the calcium chloride causes a reaction that releases heat, and aluminum is a reactive metal. You don’t want to get this on your hands, so you need a glass jar or a sturdy container that won't leak. (Related: Prepper essentials: What to include in your SHTF first aid kit.)

    You will also need eye protection such as safety goggles; cheesecloth or white sheet; cookie sheet or flat pan; water and measuring cup; and storage container for the finished activated charcoal
    Activating the charcoal

    Follow the steps below to activate charcoal.

    1. Get your charcoal and powder it. Do this by smashing it carefully with a hammer or using a mortar and pestle. Transfer the powdered charcoal to a glass or stainless steel bowl.
    2. Make a 25 percent solution of calcium chloride with water. Note that one hundred grams of calcium chloride should be dissolved in 300 mL of water. This equals 3.5 ounces of calcium chloride and 1.3 cups of water in ounces.
    3. Make a paste by carefully adding the calcium chloride solution to the powdered charcoal. Stir until you have a spreadable paste. Drain any leftover solution.
    4. Let the mixture dry in the bowl for 24 hours.
    5. Spread the dried material on a clean white sheet or several pieces of cheesecloth. Don’t use materials with detergents or scents.
    6. Rinse the dried material with clean water and catch all the water that goes through. Filter this water through a coffee filter to recover the carbon you would otherwise lose.
    7. Put the coffee filter on a cookie sheet with the rest of the activated charcoal.
    8. Bake the rinsed charcoal at 250 F for 30 minutes or until all moisture is gone.
    9. Once done, cool and break apart the charcoal. Store it in an airtight and waterproof jar.

    Check guides online to find out how you can use DIY activated charcoal to filter water, as a remedy for ingested poisons or to treat insect bites.
    Where to get Ozonated Activated Charcoal for your stockpile

    The Health Ranger Store is committed to helping you prepare for any emergency and we’re proud to introduce Ozonated Activated Charcoal - 60 capsules.
    Ozonating activated charcoal greatly enhances its surface chemistry, making it 10 times more effective at absorbing toxins. This can make it even more powerful at absorbing substances that produce gas to help keep your gut healthy.
    Use Ozonated Activated Charcoal to improve digestion, reduce toxic overload and support overall health.
    The Health Ranger Stores' Ozonated Activated Charcoal is made with high heat and activated with steam, not solvents. This unique chemical-free process results in a binding surface area that is up to 10x larger than most commercial activated charcoal and millions of pores with the superior ability to absorb toxins and remove them from the body.
    Ozonated Activated Charcoal is made with clean, pure and premium ingredients.
    You can trust that Ozonated Activated Charcoal from the Health Ranger Store is vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free and not tested on animals.

    Five Natural Garden Pesticides That Really Work

    Written by: Byron Berger Survival Gardening Comments Offon Five Natural Garden Pesticides That Really Work Print This Article

    Natural Garden Pesticides That Really Work

    Nothing’s worse than watching pests munch through your garden like it was planted for them. While we try to avoid pesticide use through companion planting and attracting natural predators , sometimes it’s not enough and we need a targeted and limited application of natural pesticide.
    The right pesticide for those living off the grid is a combination of two things. First, it has to be easy to produce from readily available materials. Second, and most importantly, it has to be safe to your family and to the carefully balanced ecological system in your garden. The pesticide mixes below meet these criteria. (Some of them aren’t technically pesticides; they’re deterrents, but the effect is the same — keeping the bugs of your plants).

    Before getting started, please remember the following:


    1. Many of the plant extracts below can irritate your skin. Make sure to wear gloves and eye protection when mixing, handling and spraying. Keep them away from children and pets.
    2. These are not industrial-strength solutions designed to eradicate any and everything in their path. They are natural, and therefore need to be applied more frequently than commercial pesticides, and after rain as well. They won’t be effective if you frequently apply water to the top of your plants.
    3. A couple of the mixes call for natural-based detergent. This means detergent without dyes or anti-bacterial agents added (which can harm the plants). If you’re a diehard homesteader and make your own soap, you can use that instead.


    1. Chili Peppers

    This mix works against aphids, grasshoppers and other larger insects that love to devour your plants. Put three or four halved chili peppers, a coarsely chopped large onion, and a bulb of garlic in a food processor. Add 1/2 cup of water and mix until finely shredded. Cover the mix with one gallon of hot but not boiling water.

    Use This As A Potting Medium, Insecticide, Or Even A Household Substance…Without Dangerous Chemicals!

    After 24 hours, strain and spray on where needed. For areas where need is greatest, follow the same directions, but blend everything to a fine purée and then work it gently into the soil surrounding the affected plants.

    2. Basil

    Aphids are a constant source of irritation in my garden. If you have the same problem, try a basil pesticide. Bring three cups of water to a boil, and then add a cup of fresh basil. Let the mix cool and strain. Then add a teaspoon of natural-based dish detergent. Spray onto affected plants.

    3. Tobacco

    While much maligned for other reasons, nicotine is a natural pest repellant. Aphids, caterpillars, and other pests avoid it. Mix one cup of tobacco in a gallon of water. Let it sit for 24 hours. Spray the solution sparingly where needed, but don’t use on members of the Solanaceae family (tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and others) or on potatoes. Nicotine is lethal to these plants.

    All-Natural Pest Control For Your Heirloom Garden - Off The Grid News (youtube.com)

    4. Chrysanthemum Flowers

    Pyrethrum is a commercially available, natural insecticide used by organic gardeners. It works by destroying the insects’ nervous systems. Pyrethrum is particularly effective against aphids, spider mites, and cabbageworms (which is why chrysanthemum flowers are a great companion plant for broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage).
    To make your own, boil four or five ounces of dried flowers in a quart of water. Strain and let cool. Spray where needed.

    Get Rid Of Unwanted Insects Without The Use Of Dangerous Chemicals

    5. Horseradish

    This mix deters many common garden pests. Take a handful of spearmint leaves, two horseradish roots (with tops), and a few scallions. Chop roughly and cover with water. The next day, strain the mix and add a tablespoon of cayenne pepper and two tablespoons of natural-based dish detergent. Spray where needed.
    Insect pests are a natural part of the garden, but with healthy plants, companion planting and using natural predators, they often are not a problem. However, if you do get some bugs helping themselves to a free dinner, try these natural pesticides.

    Mastering food preservation: A quick guide to air-drying fruits

    05/30/2024 // HRS Editors // 2.6K Views


    Tags: Air-dried food, emergency food, emergency stockpile, food freedom, food independence, Food Preservation, food science, Food storage, food supply, goodfood, homesteading, how-to, nutrients, off grid, preparedness, prepper, prepper pantry, prepping, prepping stockpile, prepping supplies, SHTF, survival, survival stockpile, survival supplies, tips



    Dehydrating fruits is a great way to preserve food that you grow in your home garden. This method is also a healthy way to make tasty fruit snacks for your family.However, this method can still be used even if you don't have a dehydrator. (h/t to MyRecipes.com)
    You can either dehydrate fruits and other kinds of foods in the open air or use or an oven.
    Open air dehydration

    Open-air dehydration or air-drying is best for low-moisture items that don't need the added heat to draw out water. Things like citrus peels and herbs are great for this method.
    To air-dry food at home, spread the items on a rack over a sheet pan and put in a cool spot out of the way in your kitchen, or inside your turned-off oven. Just make sure you don't accidentally turn it on while they are in there.
    Citrus peels might take several days to dry out fully, while herbs can take one or two days.
    The citrus peels are done when they turn hard and snap if you bend them. Meanwhile, herbs will change color and crumble if you rub them between your fingers.
    If the peels are bendy or the herbs don't crumble, continue to dry them. Store the dried citrus peels and herbs in an airtight container or zipper storage bag in your pantry or the freezer. (Related: Canning, drying and more: The art of food preservation across cultures.)
    Oven dehydration

    Oven dehydration is ideal for foods with more moisture like vegetable scraps, jerky or water-filled fruit that need some heat to help them along.
    To oven-dry food, place the items on a rack over a sheet pan. If needed, cut them into slices or smaller pieces.
    Heat your oven as low as it will go. Most ovens start at 150 F, but 200 F is fine.
    Place the items in the oven for several hours or overnight, depending on the thickness of the items and how much water they have. When the fruits reach the texture you want, turn the oven off and leave them inside, letting the items and the oven cool to room temperature together.
    Vegetable scraps for stocks or sauces should be completely hard and fully dehydrated. Meanwhile, fruits and jerky for snacks should be slightly pliable, meaning they're dry but not brittle.
    Store the dehydrated items in airtight containers in the pantry, fridge or freezer.
    Where to buy lab-verified freeze-dried food

    The Health Ranger Store is committed to helping you boost your intake of nutrients and providing you with lab-verified products. That’s why we’re proud to introduce these products, all of which are freeze-dried and lab-verified.

    Prepper pharmacy: 17 Medicinal plants you can grow indoors year-round

    01/08/2024 // Olivia Cook // 2.9K Views


    Tags: alternative medicine, goodhealth, goodmedicine, green living, herbal medicine, Herbs, home gardening, homesteading, indoor gardening, natural cures, natural health, natural medicine, off grid, phytonutrients, plant medicine, preparedness, prepper, prepper pharmacy, prepping, remedies, survival, tips

    Here is a list of medicinal plants, herbs and spices that you can grow indoors throughout the year. You only need a windowsill, vertical spaces on walls that get enough sunlight or a gardening table set up beneath grow lights to grow these medicinal plants in your home.
    These plants are the same ones that you would snip off a sprig or two in an outdoor garden to toss into your casseroles, homemade sauces, salads or soups. Use these plants for their essential oils or to make poultices, salves, teas and tinctures for your medicinal needs.
    Basil

    Mothers can use basil both before and after giving birth to enhance blood circulation and facilitate the flow of breast milk. Native Americans use basil to treat insect bites and draw out venom from snake bites. Basil can also be used as a natural deworming aid for both humans and animals.
    When applied topically, basil can treat minor burns and wounds and help remove warts. It can also help with kidney issues, loss of appetite and stomach spasms, as well as reduce swelling due to fluid retention. Basil can also help relieve cold symptoms.
    Chamomile

    This medicinal herb can be used to treat ulcers, hay fever, rheumatic discomfort, muscle spasms, minor wounds, muscle and tendon inflammation, menstrual pain, hemorrhoids, insomnia and gastrointestinal disorders.
    Chamomile is an excellent natural base ingredient for salves, creams and lotions for dry skin and sunburn.
    Chives

    Boasting high amounts of vitamins A and C, chives are great for supporting bone and immune health. Chives also contain folate and choline, which can promote good-quality sleep.
    Research has found that the phytochemicals in chives, such as ajoene, flavonoids, quercetin and S-allylmercaptocysteine, have potent anticancer properties.
    Echinacea

    Echinacea is a medicinal plant with brightly colored flowers that can easily brighten up any room in your house. You can use echinacea to make an herbal tea that can prevent and treat respiratory illnesses and boost your immune system.
    Garlic

    An active base ingredient in many home remedies, garlic is excellent for removing toxins from the body. Garlic can naturally prevent and treat gum disease, respiratory issues and symptoms associated with the common cold and flu, cold sores and yeast infections. It can also help draw out venom from spider bites.
    Lavender

    Known as a calming and relaxing herb, lavender has been shown to help relieve anxiety and other mood issues. Lavender can also be used as a natural remedy for fungal infections, hair loss, insomnia and skin problems like acne, dry skin, minor wounds and eczema.
    Lemon balm

    A medicinal herb from the mint family known for its lemon scent, lemon balm is commonly used as a natural medicine for liver and bile issues as well as gastrointestinal problems. When combined with valerian, lemon balm can help relieve restlessness and can even be used as a natural sleep aid. (Related: Lemon balm helps improve gut motility, says research.)
    Marjoram

    An aromatic herb from the mint family, marjoram has been used to make home remedies for thousands of years. Marjoram has medicinal properties that can be used to treat cough, depression, dizziness, gallbladder problems, muscle and nerve pains, nervous headaches and migraines, runny nose, stomach cramps and many more. (Related: Marjoram can prevent gastric ulcers while showing promise in fighting breast cancer.)
    Oregano

    Another potent medicinal herb with a long history of use as medicine, oregano can be used as a natural remedy for skin sores, aching muscles, asthma, cramps, diarrhea, indigestion and the common cold. Studies have shown that oregano can also help relieve inflammation, treat bacterial infections, regulate blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels, and fight cancer.
    Parsley

    A flowering plant whose leaves are widely used as a culinary herb, parsley is a great source of antioxidant vitamins, such as vitamins A and C. It is also rich in vitamin K, which is needed for blood clotting and maintaining strong bones. Parsley boasts powerful antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer properties, the latter of which is thanks to the flavonoids, myricetin and apigenin.
    The antioxidant carotenoids in parsley, namely, lutein, beta carotene and zeaxanthin, can also support optimal eye health and prevent age-related macular degeneration. (Related: Parsley is a blood purifying superfood.)
    Rosemary

    Aside from seasoning food, rosemary can be used to fight halitosis and naturally freshen one's breath. Because of its beneficial properties, rosemary is often added to all-natural homemade toothpastes and mouthwash solutions. According to studies, rosemary can also enhance brain performance and helps improve digestion, mood and sleep quality. It has natural pain-relieving properties and can also help boost immune function.
    Sage

    This herb from the mint family can be used to treat bloating, dyspepsia or stomach upset, diarrhea, flatulence, heartburn, hot flashes and memory loss. When used to make tea, sage can also help reduce inflammation, lower blood sugar levels and even fight cancer. Gargling with sage tea is also said to be a good remedy for mouth wounds, sore throats and bad breath.
    Spearmint

    A pleasantly sweet-tasting herb from the mint family, spearmint is a common ingredient in chewing gums and oral care products. Spearmint is high in antioxidant compounds and is a great natural remedy for digestive issues, such as indigestion and gas. It can also help treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women, such as excessive hair growth, or hirsutism.
    According to studies, spearmint has antibacterial properties that can help get rid of bacteria in your mouth that cause bad breath. Drinking spearmint tea is also said to help lower blood sugar levels in diabetics.
    Stevia
