The Arnica & Wintergreen Spritz can be applied as often as required also.

Can I use the Arnica & Wintergreen Targeted Thermal Rub on my face? No, Arnica & Wintergreen is not suitable for use on the face, that goes for both the Rub and the Spritz.  The Thermal Rub is not a body cream and should not be applied as a moisturiser but applied to targeted areas.  Please wash your hands after the application.
  12. Do I need to patch test? We would suggest that you patch test new products, particularly if you have a sensitive skin type.
