Keep These Boiron Homeopathic Products In Your Family Toolkit (Giveaway - CLOSED)


Cuts, scrapes, bruises, muscle aches, dry skin - unfortunately all of these are inevitable parts of living. Especially when you are living life to the fullest - which we tend to do in summertime, when the air is warm and the possibilities for outdoor activities broaden.

I try to use homeopathic and natural remedies whenever possible. My dedication to these less "conventional" products heightened when we started a family over 13 years ago. I became very conscious about the need to put less chemicals in our bodies. (And, let's not forget, we absorb chemicals through the creams and cosmetics we put on our skin.) My family "toolkit" has always included Boiron's homeopathic products. They have a number of products that are vegan-friendly, such as Arnicare creams and gels and Cicadermine.


Cicadermine is helpful for healing of skin and nasal irritations like red and chapped skin. I have been using it regularly to speed the healing process of a scrape on my daughter's knee (which she got as a result of a fall off of her bike).



Cicadermine (which also goes by the name Homeoplasmine in other countries) is a great product to keep around not only for summer scrapes but also for winter-ravaged skin. Recommended by Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop.com, Homeoplasmine/Cicadermine can soothe skin irritations and relieve dry patches, chapped lips, sunburns, ailing cuticles and cracked heels (I call them flip flop heels!). It's free of antibiotics and can be applied up to three times per day.


My children tend to have "growing pains" like I did when I was a child. In addition they get muscle aches and pains from sports and dance activities. We always check with the doctor if any pain lasts for an extended period or seems out of the ordinary. But for everyday muscle and joint aches and pains, plus bumps and bruises, we use Boiron's Arnicare gel and cream to provide natural relief. Arnicare helps us to reduce the need for pain relief medications, which can stress our bodies if overused.

Most recently I used the Arnicare cream to massage on my daughter's back after one too many cartwheels and attempts at acrobatics left her with a sore back. How I know that it provides relief is that often the pain comes at bedtime - once I've applied the cream or gel she is able to fall asleep. The Arnicare line is made with Arnica Montana - this little flower was discovered in the mountains of Europe in the 16th century and is known to have medicinal properties. Its analgesic properties can help relieve muscle aches and reduce swelling and bruising. Both the Arnicare cream and the gel absorb quickly and provide relief without nasty ingredients that could harm us. They are also not greasy and they're free of fragrance.
