Labor Day is right around the corner and with it, the unofficial end of summer. You can make the most of some well-deserved time off by keeping a few key homeopathic medicines on hand.
Watching what you eat over the long holiday weekend can be tough when there are so many temptations right in front of you. Use Nux vomica 6C if you feel nausea and cramps from indigestion, especially after excessive eating of spicy food or drinking alcohol.* If you have gastric discomfort caused by eating too much fatty food or sweets like cakes and ice cream, with bloating, belching, and slow digestion, try Pulsatilla 6C.* For bloating and gas in the stomach with belching, then the right medicine is Carbo vegetabilis 6C*.
Bug bites are never fun and the itchy bumps left behind are just plain annoying. Calendula Gel can help soothe skin irritations like bites or stings (and it’s great to keep on hand for razor burn too!).* If your skin is itchy and swollen from a mosquito bite, try Ledum palustre 30C.* If it’s a chigger bite or bee sting, Apis mellifica 30C can help relieve the swelling, itching, and burning.*
Wearing a hat and applying sunblock can provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays when you are enjoying some outdoor fun. But what if you miss a spot or forget to reapply your sunscreen? For a red-hot sunburn, one that leaves a pulsing sensation in the skin, use Belladonna 6C. It’s the main remedy used for red, painful, hot, and swollen skin.* Cantharis 6C can also be used for sunburn or just about any kind of second-degree burn that is very painful and with blisters.*
