Arnica oil from arnica montana is extracted from the blossoms and is in the Sunflower family. It’s aroma is closer to a herbal or pine smell than a flower. Arnica is a powerful healer and has great benefits:

  • eases muscle and rheumatic pain
  • good for bruises
  • calms inflammation
  • reduces swelling
  • helps heal wounds

Arnica is usually combined with Lavender or Helichrysum and must always be diluted with a carrier oil.
