Arnica Herb can be found in Central Europe and Russia, North America and Canada, in pastureland and wooded, mountainous areas. Arnica is most popular made into a salve, gel, or cream, and used externally on the skin.

This herb can be used externally in muscle rubs, massage oils, creams, or diluted tinctures for wounds, bruises, sprains, stretch marks, and swellings. It may be helpful in reducing infection, hair loss, dandruff, split ends, and premature greying hair when applied topically.


Common Name: Arnica

Precautions: Not to be taken internally or used on broken skin.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • Arnica is for external use only. Do not use it internally.
  • It's excellent in decoctions, rubbing alcohol or vinegar tinctures, salves/creams, etc.
  • Arnica can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and while nursing), children and animals.

    2. Fill the crock pot with water (but not above the jar's lid) and turn on warm for three days.
    3. Check the water level everyday to make sure the water hasn't evaporated, and fill as needed. NEVER pour cold water over a hot glass jar.
    4. After three days, strain off herbs from the oil with cheese cloth (while warm), and add grapefruit seed extract or vitamin E oil.

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED ~ For Shaving Cream

    • 3 tablespoons shea or cocoa butter
    • 2 tablespoons Vegetable Glycerin

  • Arnica Salve Recipe

    Making a salve might sound difficult, but it isn’t! The thing that takes the longest is infusing your favorite oil with Arnica. The best way for you to do this is in a crock pot on very low heat.

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED


    HOW TO MAKE IT...

    1. Stuff a mason jar 1/3 full with Arnica Flowers.
    2. Fill jar with oil of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, etc.), leaving at least one inch from the top of jar. Screw a lid on tight.
    3. Put a wash cloth in the bottom of the crock pot. Put jar in the center of the pot (on the wash cloth). Fill the crock pot with water, one inch below top of jar.
    4. Keep crock pot on low heat (oil needs to be very hot but not boiling) for 3 days. Water will evaporate out of the pot, so keep adding water as needed. NEVER pour cold water over a hot glass jar.
    5. With a Cheese cloth (cotton sheet or t-shirt will work too) strain herb solids out of oil. Now you have a herbal infused oil. It is a great massage oil!!!
    6. To make the oil into a salve you need Beeswax. You need approximately 2 oz. of grated beeswax for 8 to 9 oz. of infused oil.
    7. On low heat, warm oil and beeswax until wax is all melted. Add a drop of vitamin E oil for every ounce of oil. This is a natural preservative.
    8. While salve is still hot, pour into your favorite container or Tin cans, and let sit over night or until salve is hard. Screw a lid on tight and label with name and date. Voila!! You have a salve!!!
    9. Tips:
      If it is too soft for you, reheat and add a bit more beeswax. If it is too hard reheat and add a touch more oil.

      Salve is a thick oil that is used for cuts, bites, burns, rashes, boils, massage, and more. Salves can keep up to five years or more. Keep out of light and extreme heat.

      Precautions: Not to be taken internally or used on broken skin.
