Arnicare Gel Review and Giveaway

Arnicare Pain Relief

Guess what?  Today I have a review for us moms!  I love reviewing kids items, but I am so excited to review something that moms could really use for themselves.  Arnicare by Boiron.

Boiron is a world leader in homeopathic medicines, and I got to try their pain relief gel Arnicare. 
Arnicare is an Arnica gel for neck, back, shoulder and leg muscle pain, also for stiffness swelling from injuries, and bruising. It's a homeopathic medicine, and is unscented, quickly absorbed, non-greasy, and paraben free.
Arnicare Ointment
I loved the idea of a natural homeopathic pain relief gel.  As mommies we spend our day carrying little ones, lifting up and down, and by the end of the day, our back is killing us!  Or how about us blogging mommies, and the pains we get in our necks and shoulders from being in front of the computer.  I've tried other gels out there, but you have to wait until the end of the day to feel better.  Who wants to walk around during the day with THAT smell?  Arnicare is unscented.
I will admit, I was a little skeptical about it working, because I was used to the cold feeling and the strong smells of other gels I've tried.  Arnicare had no scent, no "feeling" expect for a small cooling effect, and it was not greasy or sticky to apply.  I almost forgot I put anything on, but within a few minutes the stiffness in my neck was gone! 

Arnicare worked great, and since it's homeopathic you don't have to worry about what you are putting on your body.  I would definitely recommend it.

It is also recommended by doctors and plastic surgeons, and is used by professional athletes! 

BUY IT~ You can buy it from most chain stores, and online merchants.  Check HERE to find a store.

    We could use this because we are a very busy family.. between our two young kids and things like hiking or not getting much sleep, there are plenty of things we could use this for - sore/stiff necks, lots of bumps and bruises, etc.
