INCI name: Arnica montana

Description: Arnica is native to the mountainous regions of Northern Europe. The oil is made by infusing the Arnica montana herb in a vegetable oil. Our Arnica is infused in Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil and has a moderate to heavy texture with a soft herbal aroma.

History / benefits: The German folk name for Arnica literally means "mountain well-being". Arnica has been used for many years to heal bruised skin, rheumatic muscle and joint problems and swelling, as well as to help heal bone fractures. Originally the herb was made into a tincture. Today it is often macerated or infused in oil, and the root stock is often used for homoeopathic preparations.

Arnica is popular in making muscle and joint cream-type rubs. However, creams cannot penetrate past the epidermis level, thus it will take longer for the herb to reach the affected area. The straight oil, when blended with Wheatgerm or Rosehip, will absorb quickly and deliver much better results. Both wheat germ and rosehip are true carrier oils, which means they are transdermal and will carry other vegetable and essential oils along with them. Those with gluten intolerance should use rosehip oil instead of wheatgerm.

How to use:

For blisters, bruises and inflamed skin
10 ml Arnica infused oil
5 drops Helichrysum (everlasting) essential oil.
Apply 3 – 4 times per day

For swollen joints:
10 ml Arnica infused oil
10 ml Rosehip or Wheatgerm oil
10 drops Black Spruce essential oil
5 drops Ginger essential oil
Gently rub into the affected area. Do not massage as this will cause further inflammation. Apply a cold pack for 10 minutes, then a heat pack for 10 minutes. Repeat as needed.
