Contains 5% Arnica Montana Extract in a vegetable sorbolene base. Prepared from the extract of organically grown Arnica plants along with infused Arnica oil. Long history of traditional use indicates that Arnica, applied topically, helps in reducing bruising, pain and inflammation and shortens healing time. Arnica cream is considered essential item for the first aid cabinet by the natural therapists.
Most commonly available as a cream or ointment, arnica is used for bruises, sprains and strains, muscle aches, leg and joint aches, rheumatic pain, inflammation from sports injuries, hematomas, contusions and fracture-related oedema. Considered by herbalists as one of the primary first aid remedies, arnica is never taken internally, unless it is a homoeopathic preparation. Homoeopathic preparations are used for similar conditions, as well as pre and post surgery to prevent swelling and other side-effects.
