Product Review/ Giveaway: Caledula Cream First Aid Cream

** THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED *** 

 back to school logo
Boiron is a company that I have used and promoted before on this site. I love that their 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. I have used them on my young daughter and myself and trust them immensely. So when they offered me the chance to review their Calendula First Aid Cream, I was more than happy to include it in my Back to School promo (cause as you know, going back to school means the onset of scrapes, bruises and miscellaneous bobos)!

Your skin is your body’s largest organ; it is responsible for protecting your muscles, bones, and internal organs. Life takes a toll on this protective shield every day, with cuts and scrapes, burns, rashes, sunburns, and constant exposure to the elements. For soothing relief of these skin irritations, there is Boiron’s Calendula Cream.

Calendula is made from its namesake: the Garden marigold (Calendula officinalis). A native to Southern Europe and cultivated widely throughout North America, the Garden marigold has been used for centuries as a natural healing and soothing substance. Likewise, homeopathic preparations of the flower have been used safely for generations to naturally speed the healing process.

Calendula Cream’s light texture is safe to use on delicate and sensitive skin. The cream has no medicinal smell, and no artificial colors or perfumes. It is also available in gel and ointment versions as well.

Luckily (unluckily?) I scraped my left hand knuckles up while helping my date defrost the large freezer this past week and the Calendula Cream came in the same day, so waala-perfect testing opportunity! Lucky you, huh?  The cream was very soothing to the open wounds and literally within hours it seemed like the wounds were trying to heal up and by the next day they were scabbed and healing! I kept using the cream and there was no soreness like there normally is when you have cuts on the top of your knuckle. I was very impressed!

My daughter also got some bobos, so we tried it on her and she had the same results as I had! AMAZING! I am definitely keeping this in the medicine cabinet to use first on minor scrapes and sunburns!

Boiron was nice enough to send along a second tube of the Calendula Cream for a lucky reader to win!!
