This 2 ounce glass jar of arnica balm is handmade, in small batches, using dried, organic arnica flowers, olive oil to first create an infused oil. It is then warmed with bees wax, and combined with a touch of the gentle warming verve of white thyme essential oil, and LoVe.
Arnica has a long herbal tradition as a botanical-based topical soother, offering relief to bruises and swellings, sprains and strains, muscle and joint aches. It's not intended for use on broken skin, so keep it away from cuts and scrapes.
Back Story: I was asked to make this balm for a client. I was reluctant, having only made balms using oils infused from fresh plant matter, and only having access to dried arnica flowers. But I figured I'd give it a go and the resulting balm was very well received.
I make this oil and balm sparingly and in limited additions, and use it with grand respect, as this plant is on the United Plant Savers (UPS) "To Watch" list which "includes wild medicinal plants that are proposed for the “At Risk” list but are in need of further research. UpS is watching these herbs and collecting information on levels of commercial usage while monitoring the viability of these plants within their current range."
