Arnica Relief Salve
Arnica is a plant of the daisy family that bears yellow daisy like flowers. Arnica flowers and roots have been used for hundreds of years as an herbal remedy.
Folklore tells us that humans learned the value of Arnica by observing mountain goats, who would search to find the Arnica plant after falling or stumbling. Following the animals’ lead, locals began to apply the herb for bruises, mostly in the form of external salves or steeped in teas.
Arnica oil, the main ingredient in our salve, contains helenalin. Helenalin is known to be a potent anti-inflammatory
Most of arnica oil’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties are attributed to its thymol derivatives. Thymol has been found to be an effective vasodilator of blood capillaries. This helps facilitate the transport of blood and other fluid accumulations and acts as an anti-inflammatory to aid normal healing processes.
