Arnica Oil is a, stabilized, oil soluble, extract of Arnica montana flowers in Sunflower Seed Oil. A powerhouse of skin healing actives, Arnica Oil, Arnica montana, has been used for thousands of years to treat everything from muscle and joint pain, to osteoarthritis, to damaged skin. The extract of Arnica is well known for it's ability to treat traumatized, and injured, muscle tissues, and skin, due to a complex of natural lactone compounds, and helenalin, which give the herb powerful anti-inflammatory, and anti-swelling, activity. These compounds are shown to improve peripheral circulation, reduce swelling and inflammation, and trigger the immune response. A great choice for any work out or, post work out, treatments, and massage, products as well as for any inflammatory skin treatments.
