Arnicare Arnica Gel by Boiron Review

I love natural, homeopathic alternatives for use by myself and my family and I have been very pleased with all of the products that I have used by Boiron® in the past. Therefore, I was particularly excited to try Arnicare® Arnica Gel that is designed to provide pain relief for trouble spots such as the neck, back, shoulder, leg muscle pain and stiffness or swelling from injuries or bruising.

My husband was born with shoulder dystocia and it causes him chronic, daily pain. He has elected to suffer through the pain instead of undergoing painful shoulder surgery for a complete replacement of the joint because it is a risky procedure. He reluctantly agreed to try Arnicare® because he had tried numerous products in the past that either didn’t work, left a greasy residue or a heavy medicinal scent. I applied the gel to his shoulder and it absorbed quickly with no residue and he was particularly pleased that it is unscented. After a few minutes, he indicated that he didn’t really notice any difference but about an hour later he commented that the “nagging ache” and “throbbing pain” was definitely diminished. He now requests that I apply Arnicare® to his shoulder every day and we are pleased with the results.

I have used just a dab of this product on my children’s infinite bumps and bruises and the tears seem to vanish. I also tried it myself on my foot where I have excruciating heel pain from plantar fasciitis. It gives a pleasant sensation to the area where the gel is applied similar to a light tingling sensation and the pain is more manageable. Arnicare® is our new “go to” product for multiple uses and it has been effective for my family in relieving pain and stiffness.

You can learn more about Arnicare® by Boiron and how it works by visiting the website. I also recommend using the helpful “store locator” so you can find Arnicare® products nearest to you. I appreciate that I can use a homeopathic alternative that really works on the targeted area and is consistent with our natural lifestyle.
