How Does Arnica Oil Work?
Most of arnica oil's anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties are attributed to its thymol derivatives. Thymol has been found to be effective as a vasodilator of subcutaneous blood capillaries, which helps facilitate the transport of blood and fluid accumulations and acts as an anti-inflammatory to assist normal healing processes.
Arnica oil also stimulates the flow of white blood cells, which process congested blood to help disperse trapped fluid from the joints, muscles, and bruised tissue
- Arnica oil is found to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties,11 and may be helpful for treating or relieving:
- Arnica oil benefits muscle aches, spasms, pulled muscles, or rheumatic pain – A 2007 study found that a homeopathic arnica solution has a positive effect on muscle soreness
- Sprains, bruises, and swelling due to fractures
- Insect bites – Homeopathic Arnica can help treat insect bites and stings, especially those that may lead to intense bruising and soreness
- Hair loss – a diluted form applied to your scalp can help increase local blood circulation, thereby promoting hair growth.
- There are also clinical trials suggesting that using Arnica oil or gel topically may be effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain
- DO NOT take Arnica internally or ingest
