Using Arnica to treat bruises?

Arnica is a yellowish flower that has been used for 100s of years in human history to reduce inflammation, especially muscle inflammation. Herbalists have used this to treat sprains and bruises.

 

Arnica oils and creams are used topically to treat sprains, bruises, and muscle pain. Diluted tinctures of arnica are used in foot baths (1 teaspoon of tincture to a pan of warm water) to soothe sore feet.

 

Arnica can be toxic when taken internally and should only be consumed with support from a knowledgeable herbal specialist. This product was packaged for external use only. Repeated application to the skin can cause irritation. Do not apply to broken skin.
