Thank goodness for Arnica

SBC Propolis with Arnica and Collagen GelsIn my hurry to do the school run, I slammed the boot of the car whilst forgetting to lean back and, yes you guessed it, the big heavy boot of the car came crashing down on the bridge of my nose!

It was a pure Tom and Jerry moment (although at that moment I didn’t find it funny)! I am convinced there really were stars floating around my head as the whole world went dark and I thought my nose had been spread from ear to ear. 

With what must have been a surge of adrenalin, I managed to pick up the children, get home, struggle through the front door, get to my bathroom and find my SBC Arnica. This I liberally and VERY tenderly applied!

Afterwards I sat there feeling very bruised and sorry for myself – but now all you can see is the cut. All I can say is thank goodness for Arnica!

Love Pipa x

    I too fell at a petrol station on an oily patch and managed to scratch up my knee and leg with about 8″ of cuts and grazes – after a shower snd TCP, Arnica gel applied very liberally then and over the following few days – no bruising whatsoever!

    I have Rheumatoid Arthritis which is particularly painful in my hands and feet. If I don’t apply SBC Arnica gel before going to sleep i guarantee I will wake up in the night in pain.

    Hi there Pipa, hope you are feeling much better know but I can remember when Imbought my youngest son hope from nursery when he was 3yrs old..he is now 13.time flies! And like a mad pup he decided to do a sprint down the walk, a little path that we took, he bering faster than me also went down like splat on the ground and ended up with a wicked bruise on his forehead. On getting home I just bathed him with some warm water on the injury gently patted dry and applied the arnica which also calmed him down and what was a fair old bruise with a swelling effect it went down just like magic and within a few hours you couldn’t tell even if he’d fallen over or not.

    Hi Pipa, I also think you look ‘Gorgeous’ whatever colour you wear – BUT!! – would you and the whole of the QVC team try ‘bald’ with me and my mates, for the London Marathon next year.- we’re walking as opposed to galloping?! – (Charity of your choice).
    Lots of love – Heather Clark xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx – x ( p.s- (extra kiss for fabulous ‘Stacey S’ my favourite designer!)- please can she join us too?!

    Dear Pippa i was sorry to hear and read that you had that terrible mishap, hope that your feeling better now, yes i too use arnica bath soak and the gel, i have very bad spondylosis both in the neck and the lower spine, even with other products i still use the arnica in the bath and i can’t tell you it is a great soother, it’s like your mother when you were little saying there there it’s going to be o.k., i do hope that you improve and get better, i also hope that your husband and children weren’t too shocked to see you in pain and discomfort, take care and look forward to seeing you on air again.
