Soothe Heal Repair 


Arnica is a perennial flower related to the sunflower. It has a yellow-orange color and resembles a daisy, except that its flower has soft, furry leaves. It doesn't have a flowery smell, but a very pleasant sweet woody odour. 


Our Arnica Infused Oil is made in small batches from 100% Certified Organic Arnica Flowers. We infuse it in liquid coconut oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil and Vitamin E. Fractionated Coconut Oil is an odourless, non-greasy, non-staining oil. It contains the medium-chain triglycerides and is a good choice for face creams or any body care because of its light texture and long shelf life. Vitamin E is added because Vitamin E is both a nutrient and antioxidant, and the oil in its purest form is extremely versatile. Known as tocopherol, it has a light brown/reddish hue and can be found in many skincare products.


It is believed that arnica helps increase circulation and helps reduce both pain and swelling from minor injuries. You can apply it to your skin, add it to water for external use or use it internally. Arnica is a natural anti inflammatory readily available with out prescription from health food and organic products retailers as well as on the Internet. It is available in convenient forms including liquid, lotion, cream, gel and ointment. As with any herbal remedy, contact your health care provider prior to using arnica. She can determine whether it is safe for you. 


Applied to your skin it is said to be beneficial to reduce the inflammation and pain caused by muscle sprain and strains. It is also believed to be able to regenerate tissue and is used for treatment of injuries. Arnica is used to promote wound healing and reduce the symptoms of rheumatic pain, and swelling due to fractures and insect bites. 


Important Notes: Arnica is never to be used internally and it is important not to ingest any form of arnica. It is also not recommended to apply to broken or cut skin and some people may notice skin irritation from the use of arnica topically. Not recommended while pregnant or nursing.
