Stick with Arnica!

Why Parents Should Speak Softly and Carry a “Little Stick” …an Arnica Stick!

Speak softly and carry a big stick.  Indeed, President Roosevelt was focused on keeping our country safe and strong when he said that. Today, we’re flipping his thoughts around just a bit – to celebrate the power of a little stick – the Hyland’s 4 Kids Bumps ’n Bruises with Arnica Ointment Stick.  It packs so much punch, we think even a president would find it worthy of carrying around!

When kids are being kids, bumps and bruises happen all the time. Hyland’s developed this special ointment to be at the ready when accidents occur. Its container is as mobile as lipstick or keys! That’s important because there’s a small window of time that all parents know so well. Just after a fall, your child may be a bit scared. Sometimes tears don’t come until a child figures out what happened and whoosh! They experience a rush of fear, excitement, and agitation.  These are all natural responses to physical injury. They’re emotional and there’s nothing more soothing than a big, long hug from a loved one.

But what should you do after the hug to heal the physical pain and minimize your child’s bruising and swelling?

There’s no app for it. But there’s a stick, and once you have used it – you’ll carry it around all the time, everywhere.

Any young body’s physical response to pain from an accident is all-systems go! Blood wants to rush into the injured area to clean out all the toxins and start the natural healing process. Arnica helps this process happen fast and efficiently. It’s the #1 homeopathic remedy for bruising and swelling. It helps the body do what it does best – repair, heal and find its natural balance.

So that’s the idea behind Hyland’s 4 Kids Bumps ’n Bruises with Arnica Ointment Stick.

But let’s not bury the best part of the story. Imagine your child in distress just after a fall.  You know what to do – apply first aid as soon as you can. In this case, gently applying Bumps ’n Bruises is the first order of business. But the biodegradable paper ointment tubes are not just containers – they feature characters of note!  Kids are delighted by the Splat! faces on the tubes. Hyland’s is on double-duty for you! First, the stick brings fast comfort and relief. But it also offers a distraction that turns tears into laughter. We’ve seen it firsthand.

That’s why you should stick with Arnica!

It’s worked for centuries and now it’s being delivered to you with packaging that’s good for your kids, better for the planet, and might even cause a few giggles to erupt during the most unlikely moments!
