Let it Bee Natural Arnica Salve is a non-toxic skin-healing product made with the flower and sometimes the rhizome of the Arnica Montana plant. In Europe and Central Asia, Arnica has been used since the 16th century to soothe minor skin afflictions and muscle aches. Native Americans also used the flower for medicinal purposes.
When used on minor skin afflictions such as small wounds or bruises, Arnica Salve can reduce swelling and speed healing. Its healing properties believed to be due to constituents of the flower such as helenalin, an anti-inflammatory that helps prevent edema. In vitro studies have shown the flower also has some antimicrobial activity.
Arnica Salve is also effective at reducing muscle pain and aches from trauma, over-exertion, and sprains. Topical preparations reduce swelling and possibly increase the circulation around the area, which soothes the pain and swelling. Some marathon runners apply Arnica Salve before a race to prevent pain and reduce stiffness while running.
Let it Bee Natural Arnica Salve uses Kosher Arnica Montana Flowers infused in Organic Coconut Oil, Local Beeswax, Organic Rosemary Essential Oil, Organic Olive Oil, and Organic Cayenne Powder.
