Boiron USA Calendula Cream Review and Giveaway!

Hi Neighbors!

A beautiful day out At the Fence! My son is out mowing a friends lawn, we are catching up on laundry, and just doing some general cleaning. I saw you out here and thought I would run out and share this Calendula Cream by Boiron USA. My husband has some really dry spots on his elbows, so he was the first to try the cream. He has been using the Calendula Cream for a short time now. (Not as regular as he could, but still using it.) It seems to be helping. Then my 9 year old has had a few dry spots we have been applying it to also. It comes in a tube and goes on like a lotion. It is not greasy feeling.

Calendula Cream is recommended:

"For minor burns, first run cool water on the burn and dry. For scrapes and skin irritation, first cleanse the area with mild soap, rinse and dry. Then apply a thin layer of Calendula Cream to affected area 3 times a day or as needed."

Boiron carries many other homeopathic products. They have more than 800 medicines approved by the Homeopathic Pharmcopoeia of United States (HPUS).


From Boiron:


"Homeopathic medicines are one of the safest
choices for self-treatment. They have no known
side effects including drowsiness. Nor do they interact
with other medication or contraindicate pre-existing
conditions."





Additionally, because homeopathic medicines do
not mask symptoms, doctors and patients can easily
detect and respond to symptoms of serious illnesses
should they arise. For these reasons, homeopathic
medicines are an ideal first choice for parents,
children, seniors, busy professionals, drivers,
equipment operators, athletes, and others."


Boiron USA sent me 2 tubes of the Calendula Cream and one of them to be sent to the winner of this giveaway.

I love this brand. That teething medicine I use for Mary Bethany comes from them and it works AWESOME! I would love to also try some of their homeopathic medicine for a variety of things.

I'm leaving for England in September, so I'd love to try their jetlag care kit! I have terrible jetlag every time I fly over the Atlantic.

I haven't tried calendula cream before, but calendula is an ingredient in a Weleda product I like.
