After a long day hiking or climbing, sore muscles, bumps and bruises are just part of the game. Soothing arnica salve can help speed recovery and get you back out to your preferred activity, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, and feeling your best. Whether you are recovering from a tough workout at the gym or just looking for relief from the aches and pains that come with age, arnica provides a soothing, natural remedy to address all your minor discomforts.
Our arnica, a native species to the forested hillsides that surround our home in southwestern Montana, is hand picked fresh every summer. There is nothing we enjoy more than spending a long, mid-summer evening wandering the hillsides to collect these yellow blooms! The blossoms are immediately set to steep, infused into olive oil to provide the base of this healing salve.
Beneficial ingredients including fair trade, unrefined shea butter and organic cocoa butter provide a wealth of antioxidants and vitamins to nourish and moisturize severely dry skin. Pure beeswax acts as a natural humectant, drawing moisture to your skin and providing a breathable, protective barrier.
Jojoba oil, high in fatty acids and Vitamin E, mimics the natural sebum of our skin, and imparts a non-greasy, silky softness. Nourishing sweet almond oil provides antimicrobial and skin-balancing properties and rose hip seed oil, long praised for its restorative powers, can help repair minor skin ailments and scars.
To give this salve it's unique scent we use a blend of pure essential oils that each infuse additional benefits. Lavender for its soothing and calming abilities, rosemary for it's anti-inflammatory properties and ability to improve circulation, eucalyptus for additional sore muscle and pain relief, and clove bud for it's warming properties and ability to reduce swelling.
Great for cracked, summer sandal heels and stubborn dry patches that arrive with cold northern temps, this salve will not disappoint!
