Arnica has been used medicinally for centuries. It’s used in salves, liniments, and ointments. Among other things, arnica is effective in treating muscle aches, strains, sprains, bruises, and arthritis. An arnica salve is a must-have in any natural remedy first aid kit.
This is a recipe by Andrea of Frugally Sustainable for an Herbal Sore Muscle Salve. It uses organic, dry arnica flowers, a base oil, essential oils, and other ingredients. Andrea provides a number of different ways to infuse the oil with the arnica, and then prepare the salve. It’s an excellent post.
One note about arnica: It’s appropriate for external use only. Don’t apply to broken skin.
