Some essential oils that may be used in place of, or in addition to this formula are (pain and inflammation oils such as Birch, Peppermint, Wintergreen, the blends LePaine, LeDeeper, LeTendaCare, or LeWarmDown)

I like to tincture this formula in almond oil since it cannot be taken internally anyway because it contains Arnica. Using the oil tincture, you can make a salve that would be less runny. A salve is particularly effective. These same herbs can be put together in dry pack form, then made into a strong tea and used as a soak or as a poultice. Remember, if swelling is present, cool the mixture before placing on the area or soaking. Be sure to label the bottle as “External Use Only”!
