Arnica comes from the Arnica montana plant and is used topically for:

• inflammation and pain associated with muscular and rheumatic disorder
• reducing bruising
• sprains
• strains of the muscles and joints

Arnica acts as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic aid. Its anti-inflammatory activity reduces swelling time in injuries, and also quickly reduces bruising. Arnica’s anti-inflammatory activity is due to a compound known as helenalin. The analgesic properties are what make it valuable for relieving the pain of sprains, bruises and other injuries.

Comfrey also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that help in much the same was as arnica. It is known to help ease the symptoms of arthritis and reduce pain for both muscles and joints.

These herbs are slow infused in olive oil for no less than 2 months to allow the medicinal properties to be extracted from the plants. Then the oil is combined with the other ingredients to create a smooth and quickly absorbed, non-greasy salve.

To use: Apply a small amount to area in need and rub in completely. Do not apply to face or eyes. Do not ingest.
