Help Remedies was created to make solving simple health issues, well simple. The packaging is made of molded paper pulp and a bio plastic made primarily of corn, which are not only interesting to look at, they are compostable—which means one day, they might become part of a large tree. They have remedies for everything from headaches to blisters to allergies. Check out their “Help I’m bored” section. It got me chuckling.
