Whether you’re on a hike or going for a swim in the ocean, active moments spent outdoors can lead to bruises and swelling that last for weeks. While these injuries require patience, and there isn’t an instant cure, topical treatments of Arnica help quicken the healing process.
Arnica is a yellow-orange perennial flower native to the mountains of Europe and Siberia. A member of the sunflower family, it is sometimes referred to as Leopard’s bane or Wolf’s bane, and it has been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years.
While Arnica is known for its various medicinal purposes, it is most recognized for its ability to naturally heal bruising and swelling. When one experiences trauma as a result of impact, a bruise (or contusion) may affect capillaries at different levels: in the skin, subcutaneous tissue, muscle or bone. Arnica’s ingredients—flavonoids and caffeine derivatives, for example—have the potential to penetrate and restore these affected areas. Potent anti-inflammatory agents in Arnica help protect damaged blood capillaries, and many of Arnica’s ingredients account for anti-bruising.
In addition, Arnica stimulates white blood cell activity, thereby improving circulation to combat swelling.[i] It diminishes the size of swollen body parts, reduces accumulations of fluid, and soothes the discomfort of inflammation.
