Homeopathic Medicine Cabinet Makeover for the Holidays from Boiron

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I have been down with a nasty cold this week, which is more than a little disconcerting during a pandemic, but it naturally had me running to my medicine cabinet for relief. This also got me thinking about the arrival of cold/flu season, and the upcoming indulgences associated with the holidays, and the types of products that I stock in my medicine cabinet this time of the year. I have selected products that I use when I get a cold/flu, seek relief for sore muscles, and this season I have a few products that I will try in case my holiday food indulgences cause any discomfort. The fine people at Boiron sent me old favorites, and product that I have never tried, and I thought that I would share my medicine cabinet makeover featuring their products.

I have always had a few Homeopathic remedies on hand, since I grew up using some of them, but I also use traditional over-the-counter cold medications when needed.

I should note that I am neither a medical doctor, nor am I suggesting that you use these products. They are simply some of the products that I have on hand this season. Furthermore, if you are not feeling well, you should consult your medical doctor. Additionally, since we are in the midst of the Covid pandemic, it is a good idea to reach out to your doctor if you have any symptoms since there are lots of cold and flu symptoms that these regular seasonal illnesses share with Covid. The second that I caught my bug, I contacted my doctor.

Additionally, the products featured here from Boiron, include the following disclosure:

Overall Assessment: So far, I have been finding relief from ColdCalm, Oscillococcinum and Arnicare. Thankfully my cold is starting to go away, and with any luck I will get through the holiday season without the need for any of these products, but I have them on hand, just in case.

  1. I am not familiar with this brand, but I am considering trying the acid meltaway tablets for the acid-induced bad taste I sometimes get or acid reflux at night before bed. They sound interesting

    1. Boiron is a wonderful French brand that makes homeopathic remedies of all sorts. I know about them because my mom always had lots of their products in the house when I was growing up. Unsurprisingly, she still uses their products and so does my whole family.

  2. So sorry you're feeling ill! My husband is in the same boat! That arnica gel is something I've used before! I smashed my finger at the gym and used that to help reduce the bruising and swelling! ive seen the Oscillo product before and almost bought it but havent yet

    1. Thanks, Claudia! It is very disconcerting having a head cold amid a pandemic! I am sorry that your husband has it too. For some reason my husband doesn't have it, and I hope that it stays that way!

  3. I just put the Sleep one and cold one in my Amazon basket. I like that the sleep one starts by saying melatonin free since I'm unable to tolerate meltonin.

    1. ColdCalm is excellent, and has worked wonders for me. I haven't yet tried SleepCalm yet, but definitely will as soon as I need it! It's great that it is melatonin-free since, like you, many people do not like using melatonin (or tolerate it).
