Arnica oil Organic

Arnica is the classic herb that is widely used for before and after sports and to reduce swellings, bruises, sprains, pulled muscles and torn ligaments. The Arnica plant is recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties, stimulatory effect on blood circulation and action against fatigue and muscle pain. It is high in calendulin, carotene, waxes, tannins, phosphorous, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Arnica Montana contains 10 different constituents (including the immuno-stimulant helenalin, its most active sesquiterpene lactone), which can have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. The plant’s essential oils contain thymol and various ethers of thymol. These are mostly found in the roots and root stock and are antiseptic and are thought to have anti-inflammatory properties. The essential oil may stimulate the “mopping up” and re-absorption of blood from the bruised tissue and hastens the replacement of damaged tissue with new cells. The content of carotenes may promote healing.
