How Often to Use Homeopathic First Aid Creams

How Often to Use Homeopathic First Aid Creams


Some people are helped by a single application of the needed cream. Other people may need to apply the creams frequently. Here is a good guide on how to use the creams: if the affected part feels much better or significantly worse after an application of the cream, that is a sign that you need to pause from it and wait. If the part felt better do not reapply until the symptoms that were relieved start bothering you again, or you feel there has been a relapse. A wise thing to do may be to apply the cream once and then wait two to three days and see how you feel. If your pain is gone, then you should not reapply. Only use the cream again, if the pain returns.

If the part felt significantly worse after an application of the cream it means that the cream has found the symptom and it is working on it. With homeopathic remedies and creams, there is often an intensification of the symptoms (or aggravation) where the remedy finds the symptom and tries to push it on through. The medicinal reaction has to be stronger than the patient’s own symptoms in order to overcome the patient’s symptoms.

After an aggravation of symptoms, an amelioration, or gradual improvement of symptoms should follow. You do not need to reapply the cream until the process has gone full circle – that is the aggravation has been followed by an amelioration, and then a return of symptoms, indicating that it is time to redose. If the symptom does not return you do not need any more of the cream.

If the patient does not experience a strong aggravation or strong amelioration after applying the cream, then he or she can continue to apply the cream one, two, or more times a day, until they experience either the aggravation or amelioration of the symptoms, indicating that it is time to stop. If there is no response, the cream may not be homeopathic to the case. At this point it is advisable to consult a homeopath for further guidance. I hope that this will bring some clarity as to how to use the creams.

  2. Hi,
    Two years ago I injured both of my hands from falling on pavement. I called firstaidcreams in desperation where I was guided to Ruta graveleones cream. I was immediately helped. Seriously this is a miracle in a jar. I am very thankful to Deborah, the Homeopath for her compassion, extreme knowledge and experience. Thank you from my heart!💞

  3. Dear Tatiana,
    Thank you for your question. Here is a list of some of the differences:

    1. The most important difference is that all but one of our creams are made with one active ingredient, so we don’t put everything but the kitchen sink in the creams, which is what Traumeel and many other manufacturers do.

    2. We use amber glass jars for the creams, so as to minimize the customers’ exposure to carbons from petrochemicals.
    3. The creams are hand made with love in the United States, and the person making the creams, Donna Lang, is paid fairly for her work.
    4. We use tinctures for all the creams purchased from reputable homeopathic pharmacies or herb suppliers. All the tinctures we use are organic.
    5. The feel of the creams is wonderful, and they do not stain clothes, nor or they difficult to wash off, as olive oil based creams are.
    6. We do our best to educate our customers as to the uses of the creams.
    7. We give a free sample of a different cream from the one purchased as a gift, in order to expose the customer to other creams, and also if the first cream does not help, they have a second one to try.
    8. We have great customer support. I am here and to answer any question the customer has, and will do my best to help them select a cream that is homeopathic to their case.
    9. We do not put perfumes in any of the creams.

    These are the points I could think of now. Thank you for your kind comment about our website. I wish you all the best.

  4. Hello, what a wonderful site, and the products to die for! We are using Arnica gel (Boiron) for my son’s sports injuries. How do your creams differ in their production from these creams and gels on the market?

  5. Dear Anne,
    I am sorry for my extreme delay in responding. I did not notice this blog comment until today. None of our creams have Sulfur in them. Thank you for your question.

    Warm regards,

  6. I am severely allergic to sulfur. Do you carry any first aid creams that do not have sulfur in them? Thanks, looking forward to your reply. Anne
