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 Ointment 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.

i love all boiron calendula products
Great for cuts, helps heal quick. Also use for severe chapped lips.
I love this ointment - I've been using it for years and it soothes and helps heal all the scratches, slashes, and scrapes I get. I use it on my dogs, too.
Love the size of the package because I can carry it in my diaper bag! The product itself is great for scrapes and cuts, which have been experiencing alot lately!!!
Only used it once but it worked really well.
A bit too thick for some applications but a good product overall
