Arnica Oil Plus
Multi-Purpose Soothing Relief*Seven of the ingredients in ARNICA OIL grow in our garden and are used as fresh herbs in this preparation. Arnica is one of the most famous herbs used in first aid. It is excellent for inflammation, sports injuries, sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, contusions, arthritic joints and rheumatic conditions. It has proven itself useful in circulatory conditions including phlebitis and bruises. It can be massaged into the affected area as often as desired, however do not apply to broken skin.
Most arnica preparations consist of only arnica. To improve upon this, we added willow, poplar and meadowsweet to enhance the acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) content and pain relieving effect. Gugul, boswellia and erythrina are used in herbal tradition for skeletal pain. Comfrey was used by Dioscorides, a Greek physician of the first century, to mend broken bones and promote wound healing. Passion flower, rosemary and lavender are calming. Pseudoginseng is useful for pain and increasing circulation.
Arnica Oil Plus uses an oil delivery method for the chi- and blood-moving herbs to reduce pain in acute situations when touching the injured area creates too much pressure for comfort. Instead of rubbing in a salve, it is easy to soak a bandage with the oil and wrap it around the injured tissue. Arnica Oil Plus backs up the comfort afforded by arnica with eleven other herbs.
"When a patient has an injury or is mending post-operatively, I usually suggest they experiment with several herbal topicals in addition to herbs used internally. One or two for pain and inflammation and another to speed cellular repair and decrease the likelihood of scar tissue and adhesions all can work together at different stages of the healing process or in a rotation to bring greater comfort and a more rapid rate of healing." -Martha
