Arnica infused oil may be anti-inflammatory and analgesic, and is known for its effective external treatment of injuries where the skin is not broken. Arnica may be useful for injury trauma, bruising, and rheumatic pain, and is also know to be effective in providing relief for strained muscles, tendons, contusions and swellings. Arnica may be used as soon as possible after injury for maximum effect. Only apply arnica topically as it can be poisonous when ingested. Our arnica oil is infused in extra-virgin olive oil and is most effective when used at full strength, or as a base for making healing ointments.
Arnica may be customized with other healing and anti-inflammatory essential oils such as helichrysum, plai, lavender, marjoram, rosemary, black pepper, german chamomile or spike lavender.
