Arnica: Nature's Nursemaid

March 16, 2015 1 min read

Arnica is a cheerful yellow flower found high in the mountains, but did you know that it also packs a huge therapeutic punch?  It grows a staggering 3000 ft above sea level and the higher the altitude the stronger the fragrance. But we love it because it’s one of the star players in the world of homeopathy. The type of Arnica widely used in cosmetics and medicinal treatments is Arnica Montana.  We use the extract in our Transformative Cleansing Oil to help reduce inflammation and irritation of the skin.  It helps calm redness and inflammation as well as puffiness around the eyes. We also use it in our Sports Massage Butter to help reduce muscle soreness. Here’s a few other ailments it’s been known to help with:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Athletic pains and strains
  • Bruising and Swelling
  • Acne
  • Dandruff
  • Hairloss
  • Insect bites

Quite the laundry list don’t you think?  ....now is it too much to ask if it could also DO the laundry too?
