Why you need Arnica in your Routine

Let’s unlock the secrets of this powerful botanical extract that belongs in the spotlight of your self-care regime.

What is Arnica?

Arnica is the botanical extract, derived from the flower heads of the Arnica Montana plant which is a perennial herb belonging to the sunflower (Asteraceae) family. With bright yellow flowers resembling daisies and vibrant green leaves, Arnica is more than just a pretty face – it’s your ticket to a world of tranquillity and comfort.

What does Arnica do for the body?

Arnica Montana is one of the oldest and most widely used forms of herbal treatment in the world today. Believed to contain anti-inflammatory compounds, that may help alleviate muscle tension and feelings of fatigue. Arnica also has well-being benefits and is often used in homeopathy to restore a sense of tranquillity.

Researchers have been so impressed and intrigued by its benefits, that they have taken a closer look at its chemical composition to get to the bottom of the ‘magic’ within.
