Our family is a pretty healthy bunch. We try to eat right, exercise, and wash our hands often. As a seasoned mom of teenagers, I have a well-stocked medicine cabinet and travel bag. Both contain our family’s go-to creams, pills and medications for just about any ailment. I have my favorites (burn ointment is a wonder), but I’m always open to trying new things, like Boiron homeopathic medicines. I’m particularly happy if they come from natural sources and offer homeopathic solutions to life’s little ‘owies’.
Homeopathy fights illness by using natural substances derived from plant, mineral and animal sources to support and boost the body’s own built-in defence systems. Homeopathic remedies can help speed up recovery time from illness, and get you back up and healthy to face life’s many daily challenges.
Boiron Summer Essentials Kit
Boiron, a global leader in homeopathic medicine, was gracious enough to send me a kit filled with summer travel essentials. The box included their top picks for bumps and bruises, insect bits, and motion sickness – just the items we’ll need to include in our travelling medicine bag on our upcoming roadtrip this summer.
I’ve been a fan of Boiron’s Oscillococcinum medicine for treatment of flu symptoms during previous winter seasons, so I know they are a trusted brand with products that have worked for me in combatting illness. I’m excited to try some of the summer essential medicines, which we’re bound to use as a result of our busy summer plans.
On a recent hiking retreat in the interior of British Columbia, I learned much about the healing powers of plants and trees, including the pretty yellow Arnica flower. I’m keen to try Boiron’s Arnicare Gel for bumps, bruises and joint pain during our next hike, as my calf muscles and knees always seem the worse for wear. I also appreciate that the gel is paraben and fragrance-free, and will absorb quickly for fast-acting relief.
Road Trip Ready
Sometimes my hiking pain lingers beyond the usual few hours. If I’m still hurting the following day, the quick-dissolving Arnicare Tablets will offer relief for longer-lasting muscle and joint pain. These tablets are naturally sourced, and good for both adults and children.
Our summer roadtrip plans call for some camping nights under the stars. So I’ll be sure to pack the anti-itching Dapis Gel from my kit. The Dapis Gel 100% naturally sourced and paraben-free. It promises a sensation of freshness, which should soothe those pesky mosquito and bug bites.
While our children have not suffered from motion sickness in cars or airplanes, boats have been another matter entirely. I welcome the addition of Boiron’s Cocculine medicine for motion sickness and nausea to our travel bag. Preparation is a big part of sane family travel planning. What’s happened in the past isn’t a predictor of future experiences. We’re grateful to other travellers who’ve shared medicines on the road, and are happy to pay it forward as needed.
