Arnica Oil

Arnica cordifolia

Our wildcrafted Arnica Oil is made on site, right here at Aromatics International, using handpicked heartleaf arnica Arnica cordifolia. We find the perennial herb in the mountains of Montana, growing in beautiful patches among subalpine conifers, often alongside another yellow-flowering herb from the same Asteraceae (sunflower) family, balsamroot. We infuse our arnica into cold pressed organic olive oil and process it in the sun for 8 weeks. The final result is a rich oil with a gorgeous golden color. Arnica is popularly used as an ointment or salve for relieving sore muscles, treating sprains and strains, as well as diminishing bruises. It also makes a wonderful salve for helping with joint pain and arthritic conditions.

Benefits and uses

Arnica is a rubefacient, meaning it stimulates and dilates blood vessels, bringing more blood to the area. Because of this, your skin may appear red where it was applied and you might experience slight irritation. Be sure to only apply externally and on unbroken skin. Also, arnica’s effects don’t happen immediately. It usually takes a few hours or sometimes even overnight. So for this one, you might need to be patient. But the wait will definitely be worth it!
