General: A rare flower native to high alpine slopes in Europe, Arnica has been used for hundreds of years to decrease bruising and swelling by stimulating the activity of white blood cells and dispersing fluid that accumulates around damaged, swollen joints. The name Arnica is derived from the Greek arni, "lamb", in reference to the soft, hairy leaves.
Skin Benefits: Boosts immunity. Accelerates healing. Fights inflammation. Helps speed reconstruction of connective tissues by stimulating circulation and bringing white blood cells to the area, which helps to minimize bruising and soreness. We use arnica oil infusion in many of our products, including Angelina's now-famous Skin Doctor, Naked Deep Tissue Massage Butter, Peppermint Pedi-cure and our Sore Muscle Rub.
Method of Extraction: Dried flowers infused in olive oil.
