Most of us will agree that the best parts of our Fourth of July celebrations are the food we eat and the time we spend with our families. This year, most of us would also agree that celebrating this patriotic holiday on a Wednesday isn’t an ideal situation without a day off to recover. But don’t worry—homeopathic medicines are here to help. Keep a few of these must-haves on hand (and some right next to the hot dogs and potato salad probably isn’t a bad idea), so when you wake up for work tomorrow morning, you’re not feeling sunburnt, sore and achy, sluggish or a little hung over from all the festivities.
Sunburn happens easily, especially if you’re not wearing sun block or protective clothing. To soothe your skin, try Calendula Lotion. Its moisturizing effect makes it ideal for covering large surfaces such as your legs, arms or back. If it’s a rough game of beach volleyball that’s making you wince, Arnicare Gel relieves muscle pain and stiffness, and reduces pain, swelling and discoloration from bruising. This non-greasy, odorless gel is absorbed quickly by the skin for fast pain relief. And if an upset stomach is your problem, try Nux vomica. Nux helps to relieve nausea, acid indigestion, hangovers, and most importantly, an unhappy tummy from overdoing it with food and drink. To locate these medicines, try our handy store finder.
From everyone here at Boiron, we wish you and your family a safe and healthy Fourth of July!
