Arnica Montana Extract is a folk remedy that helps with daily struggles such as bumps, bruises, aches and pains, swelling,

Arnica in its natural setting 

Arnica is popular with athletes, and especially massage therapists. Laboratory experiments on Arnica Montana oil have shown that it can kill bacteria and decrease inflammation. This amazing flower infused oil is commonly used to produce salves, balms and massage oils and is known to relieve lower back pain and stiffness from overexertion, minor trauma from long drives and more. It’s known to help with arthritic symptoms of the hands, wrists and knees as well as assisting in the reduction of swelling with positive results easing muscle pain and creating a great environment for muscle recovery. 

Anyone who bruises easily will appreciate Arnica Montana’s ability to reduce bruise discoloration. It’s not known exactly how it works but so many reports of this are abound. It’s my opinion that Arnica is a must for every folk medicine cabinet.  Whether you are an active baby boomer, a weekend warrior, or a professional athlete, it is a perfect answer to many of life’s little injuries.   

Arnica is a folk remedy that many say works amazingly. 🌼🌼🌼 

The internal and external preparations are made from the flowering head of Arnica which is a bright yellow daisy-like flower in the Asteraceae family that blooms in July and August. Arnica Montana is related to Chamomile and Sunflowers so it’s natural to extract these flowers' natural properties with Sunflower oil. It has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. It is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. 

Arnica is used extensively in European folk medicine and in Germany it’s known as Wundkraut; note that it’s not edible. Today, Arnica has grown to be one of the most popular homeopathic medicines throughout the world.  It is trusted by professional athletes to relieve sore muscles, by prominent cosmetic surgeons to relieve post procedure pain, and by savvy parents to treat playground bumps and bruises. 

Arnica is indigenous to sub-alpine regions of western North America but can also be found in arctic regions of Europe and Asia, Romanian Arnica Montana is very well respected. 

What makes Arnica Work?

So we know that Arnica is a flower, we also know that it has a multitude of uses. It’s not fully understood how Arnica Montana works. The constituent Helenalin is known to be part of what makes this beautiful oil so magic. It’s known to make bruises go away fast which may have something to do with increasing blood flow to the problem area. Some say that Arnica helps with hair regrowth; maybe it’s worth a try. Here are some great bits of  Arnica Knowledge. 

Arnica Heals Bruises, at least it seems like it does. 

A study out of Northwestern University’s Department of Dermatology found that topical application of arnica was more effective at reducing bruises than low-concentration vitamin K formulations. Researchers identified a number of ingredients in arnica that account for anti-bruising, including some that are caffeine derivatives.

Some say Arnica Oil Treats Osteoarthritis.

Arnica has been shown in studies to be effective against osteoarthritis, making it an effective natural arthritis treatment. The use of topical products for symptom relief is common when it comes to osteoarthritis. A 2007 study published in Rheumatology International found that topical Arnica was as effective as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-like ibuprofen in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the hands. 

Arnica was also found to be an effective topical treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. A study out of Switzerland evaluating the safety and efficacy of topical arnica had both men and women apply arnica twice daily for six weeks. The study found that the arnica was a safe, well-tolerated and effective treatment of mild to moderate osteoarthritis of the knee.

Arnica for Carpal Tunnel may be a thing

Arnica oil may be a great natural remedy for carpal tunnel which is inflammation of a very small opening just below the base of the wrist. Arnica oil could help with the pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. 

In a double-blind, randomized comparison of arnica administration versus placebo post-surgery in patients between 1998 and 2002, the participants in the group treated with arnica had a significant reduction in pain after two weeks. Arnica’s potent anti-inflammatory effects make it a smart choice for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Arnica is great for athletes. 🏋🏽🏂🧗🏻🚵🏼‍♂️🥇

Arnica oil is a potential remedy for various inflammatory and exercise-related pains. The positive effects of topically applying Arnica have proven to be effective in reducing pain, indicators of inflammation and muscle damage, which in turn can improve athletic performance. Study participants who used arnica had less pain and muscle tenderness 72 hours after intense exercise, according to the results published in the European Journal of Sport Science.

Arnica Montana roll ons with CBD 

Arnica Oil Solar Infused by Exalted Naturals🌲☀️🌼

It’s amazing what the Sun can do. It keeps us warm and makes plants grow through Photosynthesis. The Sun provides us with the Vitamin D necessary for a healthy mood, strong bones, strong muscles and more. It’s my belief that the energy from the sun becomes part of our extra potency Arnica Montana Oil during the Solar Infusion process. It takes patience since it’s a process that lasts over a month. 

Exalted Naturals Arnica Solar Infusion Process

Since Arnica is a genus of perennial herb belonging to the sunflower family we naturally choose Sunflower oil due to its close relation to Arnica. It is pure and organic, solar infused with Sunflower which withstands the multi week process and extra vitamin E to increase its stability and overall shelf life. 

The infusion takes place in tightly sealed glass jars in the warm Eastern San Diego Sunlight and is later strained and filtered of most sediment and packaged in Dark Blue Glass. We will soon be offering two versions, both highly concentrated and the same oil we use in our Active Recovery CBD Balm.  This great oil will be available by mid May in 4 Oz concentrated bottles to be blended in a carrier oil. This oil is useful for the following:

  • Massage
  • Bruises
  • Muscle soreness
  • Joint stiffness
  • Arthritic conditions 
  • Some say Arnica helps with hair loss
  • General topical pain relief 

  • This product is for external use only. Arnica is currently being used in products such as Exalted Naturals Hemp CBD Roller and Active Recovery Balm. Solar infused Arnica Montana Oil is packed in a tinted glass jar and full of sunshine in a bottle made and based out of San Diego.
