How are homeopathic medicines presented?
Many homeopathic medicines are presented as specialties in packaging like other over-the-counter drugs you're familliar with.
Specialties are very convenient as their indications and directions for use are very clear and specific to a condition. They are available in a variety of dosage forms such as tablets, gels, ointments and creams, syrups, eye drops, and suppositories.
If you are not yet familiar with homeopathic medicines, specialties are a great way to discover their benefits.
Specialties, like Arnicare Gel or Calendula Lotion, may contain one single medicine although most of the time they combine several active ingredients within the same product. Another very common presentation for homeopathic medicines is the multi-dose tube. This presentation is usually used for medicines containing only one active ingredient.
When should I choose a single medicine?
In some instances, symptoms are so specific that it is easy to select one single medicine. Many self-medication books are available to help you in your selection. One of the most popular is the Family Guide by Dr. Alain Horvilleur. Boiron offers more than 80 of the most commonly used single medicines, packaged in our signature "multi-dose tubes" to select health food stores and pharmacies. These stores may also special-order other single medicines from the 800 stocked by Boiron.
How can I get more familiar with homeopathic medicines?
Boiron CareKitsTM provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about homeopathic single medicines. Each kit contains the two or three most useful single medicines for a particular condition, individually packaged in multi-dose tubes.
For minor cuts, scrapes and skin irritation, first gently cleanse the area with mild soap, rinse and dry. For minor burns, first run cool water on the burn and dry. Then gently apply a thin layer of Calendula Gel to affected area 3 times a day as needed.
For external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes. Do not use if tube seal is broken. Consult a doctor in case of deep or puncture wounds, animal bites or serious burns. Stop using this product and consult a doctor if condition persists for more than 3 days or worsens. Keep this and all medication out of the reach of children. In case of ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a poison control center immediately.

My mother-in-law and one of my friends have skin that cracks in the winter (already starting in October this year). The cracks are painful and go so deep they sometimes bleed.
They both "tried everything." Boiron Calendula gel is the only thing helps them. (I'm so proud I recommended it to them.) Recommend rubbing a tiny dab into the hands a few times a day, or more if you like it.
More than a dab, and your hands get greasy. Probably not a problem for the skin, but a dab is all that's necessary, anyway.
At work, I sometimes splash isopropyl alcohol on my fingers. It leaves my skin with the oil sucked out in spots. A dab a few times works for me, too.
This product is great to put on mosquito bites.
When looking for natural pet care products, calendula was recommended to help soothe itching. Boiron is a top of the line company for homeopathics and such. I appreciate your availability of such high grade products at reasonable prices.
always works to clear up a rash, quickly. I love this product.
Seems to calm down skin irritations. Not greasy or sticky.
