So far this summer I’ve been dealing with a fair share of maladies, from colds to aches and pains, cuts, scrapes, skin & eye irritation, bruises and raw skin around my nose as a result of a cold. I’ve replaced the products I usually use to treat and heal during these times with homeopathic solutions from Boiron, a family-run worldwide homeopathic medicine company that’s been around since 1932, and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Arnicare Gel ($8.69) has not only eased aches and pains, but helped to dissolve the discoloration of bruises rather rapidly. Calendula Cream ($12.99) on the other hand, has been my catch-all for everything from little cuts around my cuticles to that aforementioned uncomfortable and unsightly raw nose look, razor burn, and sunburn. Even though I’ve only been using it for a few weeks, I’m having trouble figuring out how I’ve survived up to this point without it!
Boiron’s Optique 1 Eye Drops ($9.19 for 10 doses) have really come to my aid in combating itchy, dry eyes as a result of allergies and overall, the sensation of dryness and feeling uncomfortable from being sick, while taking the Ruta Graveolens ($8.99) pellets has given me hope of lessening the exhausting eye effects of staring at a computer screen all day long. I’ll always take a homeopathic solution from Boiron over anything else in the medicine aisle of the mass food and drug store, which have fortunately begun to carve out space for some of these products there. You’ll easily find Boiron in natural product stores, such as Whole Foods, and online at BoironUSA.com.
