Arnica Oil

Posted on


INCI name: Arnica Montana extract and Oil



Arnica oil is made by infusing the flowers in plant oil. Arnica is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is excellent for healing bruises. Apply arnica oil or gel to the affected area as soon as possible after the injury has occurred, and the swelling will reduce quickly. Do not apply arnica to broken skin.


You can make your own arnica oil by infusing arnica blossoms in soya oil – use 50ml flowers to 500ml oil. Place the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid and leave on a sunny windowsill for one month, shaking the mixture once each day.


Strain the mixture and bottle. Keep stored in a cool, dark place. Do not consume products containing arnica without guidance from a practitioner.
