I know there are thousands of you out there that will agree with me that this Today’s Special Value offer for 19th February, based on our top-selling Arnica, couldn’t have come at a better time. I thought I would tell you a few funny stories about how Arnica from SBC and I have been together for about 25 years.
The Arnica Bath Soak is essential for me as a foot soak. After wearing my ridiculously high-heeled shoes and I am craving my EMUs or Wellies, it helps my feet to feel much more comfortable.
The Arnica Bath Soak has many a time helped me have, in my opinion, a better night’s sleep when I have fallen off my horse or been kicked. Especially when the injuries include around the back area and it's even difficult to move or put on a jumper, a soak in Arnica really gets me going.
When I’m chilled to the bone and soaked through to my knickers, after working outside on the farm with the animals, the only way to get warm is an Arnica Bath to soothe me. I will sometimes mix it with an aromatherapy bath from Elemis for a special treat.
The Arnica Gel itself is definitely my most used item. I always have a spare one which is normally pinched by my in-laws or my parents who are in their 60s and 70s. They love to apply it to hands, thumbs, ankles and hips while I, who am supposedly dramatically younger, need it all over!
When I had a black eye from crashing into the wing of a jump, Arnica Gel with concealer still allowed me to work. Presently, my left hand is not moving very well because of a horse kick but you probably don’t notice as I’m using Arnica Gel as a hand cream at the moment. My knees are apparently ‘middle aged’ and Arnica Gel goes on them daily. When I am breaking one of my horses in (this year it’s 4year old Fina) I will inevitably be given cause to need it all over the body as I’m sure there is a tumble heading my way.
The Arnica Warming Gel, I find is essential for holiday packing because it’s smaller and in a tube so easier to travel with. It also has a more concentrated arnica extract which is very beneficial as most of my holidays include skiing which normally has me putting the warming gel with a hot water bottle on my knees and back every night so that I can get on the slopes the next day.
This year I have switched to boarding and although I haven’t fallen over skiing apart from maybe once or twice in the last 20 years, boarding, in the one lesson I had, had me wiping out approximately 15 times in two hours including somersaults and positions I didn’t know you could land in on the slope! With this in mind, the warming gel is definitely going to be needed on my upcoming, super cool boarding holiday (ski boots packed in case it all gets too painful!).
