Arnica oil helps with muscle aches, spasms, pulled muscles or rheumatic pain.
It’s also beneficial for sprains, bruises and swelling due to fractures, insect bites and acne.
Most of arnica oils anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties are attributed to its thymol derivatives.
Thymol has been found to be effective as a vasodilator of subcutaneous blood capillaries, which facilitate the transport of blood and fluid accumulations and acts as an anti-inflammatory to assist normal healing processes.
Arnica oil also aids in stimulating the blood flow of white blood cells, which process congested blood to help disperse trapped fluid from the joints, muscles and bruised tissue.
