Dr. Nick Notes
Arnica montana is a flower commonly known as leopard's bane root ~ this flower is high in Sesquiterpene lactones, triterpenediol esters known to reduce inflammation and support recovery in injury. Traditionally used in rheumatism, inflamed joints & muscles, this Organic CO2 Extract of Arnica (standardized to 4% Sesquiterpene lactones) is top-shelf for therapeutic botanical ingredients. This Organic Arnica Oil we offer is truly categorized as a concentrated CO2 Extract of Arnica or Arnica CO2 Extract. We further take the Organic Arnica CO2 Extract and infuse into Fractionated Coconut Oil to produce an Arnica Oil or Arnica Infusion Oil as we care to call it!
Very popular homeopathic formulation called Heel (by Boiron) contains a succussion (shaking/dilution process) of diluted Arnica montana, amongst other anti-inflammatory plants. Heel is a licensed Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug which has even been accepted into the Olympics to help athlete’s recover pre/post injury. This is quite broad mainstream acceptance for such a robust, beautiful flower! Arnica montana has been historically infused into olive oil over weeks to produce a recovery product for Mediterranean families to speed healing of bruising, aches & pains.
The pure CO2 Extracted Arnica Oil is a gelly-like consistency that stains the clothing and is quite difficult to apply. We’ve taken the liberty to infuse our CO2 Arnica Extract into Fractionated Coconut Oil enhanced with monoatomic minerals extracted from Dead Sea Salt / Celtic Sea Salt over a 1-3 month period. The result is an easy to apply, extremely effective and cost economical Arnica Oil product for your application. Great to support aches, pains, inflammation, increased circulation and reduce bruising well.
