Please note, this herb is not for internal use. Numerous studies support the longstanding traditional use of Arnica in topical form as a powerful aid in healing bruises and swelling, easing inflammation, and relieving pain.
This flower is our star ingredient in the Pure Arnica Oil we manufacture onsite. There is no better Arnica flower found on the market. Use this oil for your own massage practice, or add it to a blend of other oils and scents for a personal touch. Also available is our Pure Arnica Salve.
