The Chasing Joy Brunch & Learn is less than 10 days away and I’m excited. Every brunch has a different theme. This time the theme is Homeopathic Essentials for Everyday Joyful Living. I’ve partnered with Boiron USA who is sending their Pharmacist Dr. Christophe Merville to give us the low down on Homeopathic health.
I first connected with Boiron years ago at my first Blogalicious conference. We have had a wonderful brand/blogger relationship since then. Boiron has been a sponsor at almost every Chasing Joy event and Brunch & Learn since then. It is awesome to actually partner with the brand this time.
The Boiron product that I have used the most is the Arnicare Gel. A couple of summers ago I hurt my hamstring really badly. I had been working out hard to lose weight in preparation for IVF. Of course, I overdid it. I found myself in the supermarket during my lunch break unsure if I’d be able to walk back across the street to the office. When I made it back I was in a lot of pain. I used the Arnicare Gel daily to help my recovery. It eased the pain enough so that I could stretch regularly. It was not greasy so I did not have to worry about it messing up my sheets or pants. The gel is also free of parabens, fragrances, and dyes which was super important for me when I was avoiding toxins while trying to get pregnant.
Baby Joy Chaser is only 6 months old so he has just started teething. So far he has not had any issues that a bib (for drool, ewe!) can’t handle. However, that is not the case for my friend’s son. As soon as she heard that Boiron was a #CJBL sponsor she told me how she likes the Camilia teething drops. She and her husband give them to her little boy to sooth his teething pain so that he can sleep at night. I already have some in my medicine cabinet should Baby Joy Chaser start to have a hard time when his teeth start to erupt.
We are in flu season already. Oscillococcinum is the Boiron product we should all stock up on. You can start to take it as soon as you feel symptoms coming on. Flu symptoms are headache, body aches, chills, and fever. Oscillococcinum is non-drowsy, has no preservatives, and comes in quick dissolving pellets. Also there are no known drug interactions however you should always check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking medications.
Boiron has some awesome products. I’m excited to learn more about them at the brunch. Mostly, I’m interested in how the different homeopathic medicinal products impact breastfeeding if at all. (I’m still breast feeding at 6 plus months. Yay me!!!)
What Boiron products do you use? Which ones are you interested in learning about? Which ones are you hoping to find in your swag bag at the Chasing Joy Brunch & Learn.
