We love Arnica!

Having kids means I always have a tube of arnica around. When I travel it comes with us, on camping trips it is especially useful. Arnica in it's topical form is remarkable. At first sign of bruising or sprains, apply arnica cream and viola, pain gone!
Arnica ( Arnica montana) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s and remains popular today. Applied topically as a cream, ointment, liniment, salve, or tincture, arnica has been used by both Europeans and Native Americans to soothe muscle aches, reduce inflammation, and heal wounds. Arnica should not be used on open skin or taken internally.
