We’re active in our local communities and engage in projects the world over that help transform disadvantage into self-reliance and economic sustainability.”
That was a longer than usual introduction for a Daily Dish review, but today’s review is Part 1 of a three-part series on Dr.Hauschka Skin Care, a company whose products I’ve come to love and whose mission and business practices are in inspiration. “When it comes to any one action we take, any one decision we make, we take the time to look at the repercussions and ramifications on the earth, our clients and customers, our communities and our company.”
Today’s review focuses on Dr.Hauschka Holistic Home Remedies, which were introduces to the United States this last fall. (WALA Heilmittel, which manufactures Dr.Hauschka, has been producing natural medicines fro biodynamic and organic ingredients in German for over 70 years.) The remedies include eight medicines designed to offer a homeopathic and anthroposophic approach to healing. I’m sure you all know what “anthroposophic” means but I had to look it up. It’s all a little deep for me, so the question is, do these remedies work?
I received samples of the new Holistic Home Remedies line and with the help of my family, we were able personally test a couple of the first aid medicines. (Fortunately for us but unfortunately for this review we didn’t have a chance to review the cold & flu or women’s health medicines.) The Mercurialis Wound Rescue is my family’s new best friend and miracle worker. This product treats infected and poorly healing cuts and helps reduce inflammation. I used the Wound Rescue on those painful splits under my fingernails that I always get each winter. I usually go through a few days of throbbing pain even with the hydrogen peroxide and antibiotic ointment. With the Mercurialis Wound Rescue the throbbing ceased almost immediately and the next morning my finger felt 100% better. The same thing happened when we used it to treat my daughter’s infect pierced ears. They were a mess and I worried we might have to let them heal up and pierce them again, but her ears were rescued by Dr.Hauschka. One application at night and the next morning they were as good as new—and I’m not exaggerating!
I also personally tested the Arnica Bump & Bruise Relief, which helps speed up recovery from bumps, bruises and muscle strains. I had some aches and pains in my back part due to stress and part due to trying too hard at yoga. I dissolved the small (and tasty) pellets under my tongue and in just a little while the aching had mellowed and I found I didn’t even need the ibuprofen I planned to take. I admit, when it comes to medicine I’m not holistically inclined. I’ve used some remedies here and there but without much success. I am now a changed person thanks to Dr.Hauschka and my faith is restored in homeopathic and organic medicines.
Other remedies in the Dr.Hauschka Holistic Home Remedies include Ouch! Aid Arnica Compress, Calendula Wound Cleanser, Agropyron Cold Relief, Apis Belladonna Sore Throat Rescue, Nicotiana Cramp Relief (buying a case of that one!), and Borage Varicose Vein Relief. You can find Dr.Hauschka’s Remedies online or at exclusive retail locations like Whole Foods and select pharmacies. Look for Part 2 of my Dr.Hauschka series in May when I feature their fabulous skin care and sun care lines!—Emily
