They say 3 is a magic number and if we're talking about the combination of arnica, yarrow, and helichrysum for healing bruises..that just might be true!

Arnica is one of the longest-used remedies for speeding up the healing of bruises and reducing pain. One study done in 2007 showed that arnica gel was equally as effective as ibuprofen for pain relief in patients suffering from osteoarthritis in their hands! It is also rich in a phenol called 'thymol' which causes blood vessels to widen thus allowing more blood to flow and rapidly increasing the healing and absorption of a bruise.

Yarrow contains powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and is so adept at healing skin wounds and bruises that it was often carried in medics' bags during WWI. It helps to reduce swelling and fight off infection. (It is also the yellow flower in our business logo!)

Helichrysum is a strong anti-inflammatory as well, contains potent antioxidants, stimulates blood circulation, and can even reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles thanks to its skin-regenerative abilities. It's a must have herb for anything involving skin healing!

Be sure to avoid large open wounds and fresh scapes as arnica is not meant to be ingested unless under the supervision of a certified herbalist or homeopathic doctor. Wait until the wound or scrape has scabbed over before applying. 


DIRECTIONS: AVOID BROKEN SKIN. Apply on bruised area 2-3 times daily until the affected area heals. May also be applied to sprains and achy muscles.

INGREDIENTS: beeswax, Olea europaea (pure olive oil), Achiella millefolium (yarrow), Arnica Montana (arnica), Helichrysum italicum (helichrysum) EO
