This warm oil blends Arnica, traditionally used by herbalists for muscle soreness, with camphorous Rosemary, Basil and Bay Laurel for deep relaxation.
Wild-crafted from Alpine meadows, Arnica has been used since the 16th century to soothe muscle pain and bruising. Perfect for all skin types.
ARNICA EXTRACT: Arnica has been shown to be an immuno-stimulant, as both the sesquiterpene lactone helenalin and the polysaccharide fraction stimulate phagocytosis. Sesquiterpene lactones are known to have anti-inflammatory activity and their biological effects appear to be mediated through immunological processes. As helenalin is one of the most active, this might help account for the use of Arnica for pain and inflammation.
ROSEMARY, BASIL and BAY LAUREL ESSENTIAL OILS: These oils contain high camphor content, which warms tissue and increases local circulation.
SUNFLOWER, APRICOT and GRAPESEED OIL: These light and easily absorbed emollients help skin retain elasticity and suppleness. Rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
