Arnicare & Calendula

Your day at the beach doesn’t have to end in misery if you keep your first aid kit stocked with natural summer essentials like Arnicare and Calendula medicines. These multi-purpose products are available in easy-to-apply topical forms such as gel, cream, lotion or ointment. Arnicare works on muscle aches, stiffness and bruising, while Calendula helps heal cuts, scrapes, bug bites and minor burns and soothes irritated and sunburned skin. Be sure to look for great deals on these Boiron products at our store(s).


Active families that love summer sports rely on Arnicare Gel because it absorbs quickly into the skin and provides cool, soothing relief. The gel contains Arnica montana, a popular homeopathic medicine, so it works naturally with the body to relieve muscle pain, swelling and bruising. The paraben-free, non-sticky gel does not contain artificial colors or perfumes. More information can be found at

Arnicare Cream, made from Arnica montana, a mountain daisy, can relieve bumps and bruises after a day of digging, pruning and weeding in the garden. You can use the cream on sensitive areas such as the face, but always avoid an open wound. Also, women who bruise easily will appreciate that the cream can reduce unsightly bruise discolorations on exposed legs and arms while offering a moisturizing effect. Visit or ask for it at our store.

When an injury occurs, rest and minimize your physical activity, apply ice to the injured area, elevate the injured arm or leg, and relieve pain naturally by applying a topical like Boiron Arnicare Gel or Cream. Both contain homeopathic Arnica montana, which works naturally with the body to relieve muscle pain, swelling and bruising. More info can be found at or ask one of our in-store wellness experts.


Small burns that occur around the grill or outdoor fireplace may need more time to heal than minor sunburn. Immediately place the skin under cold water for two minutes to reduce damage to the tissues and the pain. Then apply Boiron Calendula Ointment because it adheres to the skin longer for prolonged action. Visit for more info.

The mid-afternoon sun can turn exposed skin tender and red even with precautions like wearing sunscreen or a hat. Boiron Calendula Cream, made from Calendula officinalis, a garden marigold, can help moisturize and heal sensitive burned skin. Visit for more info or stop by our store.

Is your skin taking a beating this summer? Skin can be exposed more to the elements during the warmer weather so we have some natural solutions in stock. You can rub Boiron Calendula Cream into cracked heels or apply Calendula Ointment to chapped lips dried out from the sun or wind. More info can be found at
