Arnica & Calendulu: Natural Healthcare Products – For a Beautiful You!
I’m at an age that makes it seem like aches and pain are my constant companions. From muscle soreness to arthritis pain, it’s something new everyday – knee pain, back pain, neck ache – you know what I’m talking about. Aches and pain also seem worse at night, which doesn’t make getting a full nights beauty sleep easy! You wake up tired, cranky and definitely not feeling very beautiful!
I’ve tried several over the counter remedies with little to no success for my aches and pains. With my daily aches and pains, I also hate resorting to pain relieving pills as I would be swallowing them all day long! I would much rather go the natural route. And, what about rashes, scrapes, burns, etc.? I would also rather have natural products that will aid in their healing.
That’s where Boiron comes in! I was recently given the chance to work with Boiron and their natural products, Arnicare and Calendulu.
Boiron was established in 1932 and has been providing consumers with their homeopathic products and committing themselves to finding better ways to feel good while living a happy life. As one of the world leaders in providing all natural goods, Boiron’s passion is your total health and their promise is your 100% satisfaction with their products. Whether your treating a child who’s teething, looking for relief from arthritis or stiff muscles, Boiron has you covered with their wide assortment of gels, ointments, tablets, etc.
From Boiron’s assortment of gels, creams and lotions, I was able to try out Boiron’s Arnicare Cream and Gel, along with their Calendulu Cream, Gel, Lotion and Ointment. Let’s check them out!
Arnicare: Cream and Gel
Arnicare is made specifically for achy joints and muscles, along with arthritic pain. Arnica Cream and Gel is used to temporarily relieve muscle pain and stiffness due to minor injuries, overexertion and falls. It also aids in reducing pain, swelling and discoloration from bruises.
Both the Arnica Cream and Gel are used the same way, it is only a matter of preference. While I liked the cream the best, my hubs liked the gel.
I particularly liked the Arnica Cream because it seemed to be more suited to massage. I have arthritic joint pain in my knees and ankles and I liked the fact that I could massage it in like a lotion. The Arnica Cream was very soothing and provided relief directly where the pain was. I loved being able to relieve the pain with an all natural product!
My hubs preferred the gel for his aching back. He works on concrete all day and suffers from chronic low back pain. He has been enjoying the Arnica Gel. It provides him relief of the muscle aches, which helps him get a good nights sleep. We won’t go so far as to say beauty sleep for him, but you know what I mean!
Arnica Cream and Gel has now became a staple in our medicine cabinet!
Calendula: Lotion, Cream, Gel and Ointment
Boiron’s other product, Calendulu, is made from the Garden marigold. It has compounds that have been shown to promote healing and is used for skin ailments such as sunburn, razor burn, dry skin, chafed skin, rashes, etc. Calendulu is a common, and popular, homeopathic medicine.
I have been trying the Calendulu products on my dry skin, razor burn and on my cheeks where I got wind burned from being out in the cold blowing wind the other day. It is very soothing!
The Calendulu products come in an assortment such as: Calendulu Cream, Gel, Lotion and Ointment. Which one you choose depends on what the symptom may be.
The Calendula Cream is great for use on dry or chafed skin and helps promote healing of cuts, scrapes, minor burns and sunburn.
The Calendulu Gel helps promote healing of skin irritations such as razor burn and insect bites or stings.
The Calendulu Lotion is wonderful for a hand and body lotion, especially for healing of sunburn and rashes. It also soothes dry skin. The lotion is best if you have a large area of skin to cover.
The Calendulu Ointment is thicker and for lack of a better word – stickier. It adheres to the skin longer and promotes healing by moisturizing. It promotes healing of cuts, scrapes and minor burns. It’s also great on chapped hands, lips and nasal irritation from colds.
I think the best thing for me with using the Boiron Arnica and Calendulu Creams and Gels is that they don’t interfere with my daily medications. When you take daily medications for other health issues, you have to be careful about what over the counter drugs you swallow or use. With the Boiron natural products, I don’t have to worry about it! A definite plus for me!
As you can see, Boiron has an arsenal of products for both pain and skin conditions. I would go so far as to say they should be in every home’s medicine cabinet! You really cannot go wrong with natural healthcare products!
