Arnica Oil

At the soap conference this year one of my roommates introduced me to the arnica plant.  I’d never heard of it until then!  She had a slave she used for sore muscles (I’d hiked up a mini mountain the previous day, prior to the conference starting and was sore!)  She let me use some and I was sold on the amazing qualities of arnica.

Arnica is reputed to have anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe sprains, bruises, arthritis, insect bites, aches and pains. It relieves pain and provides an overall soothing experience.

I got to work formulating a balm and salve recipe.  I also use arnica in my Itch Relief stick.  I love my salve (a butter) and the itch relief stick has kept me from itching bites raw this summer.
