Arnica Oil

Arnica oil (at least the one sold by Butterfly Express, llc) is made by soaking arnica blossoms—fresh, whenever possible—in almond oil. Arnica oil is used with amazing result for injuries where bruising, swelling, and/or inflammation are present.

Arnica oil is said to cause swelling in exposed muscle tissue, so it is not used on open wounds or deep abrasions except in homeopathic form. Arnica is one of my favorite healing plants and should be in every first aid kit!
