Arnica Rescue

After my sister told me about arnica, and I found it in an ointment for 50% off at Saje, I knew I had to try it.  Arnica Rescue is an acute injury ointment.  It is 100% natural and contains only arnica montana flower, olive oil, and beeswax.

Arnica is a homeopathic remedy used for swelling, bruises, sprains, breaks, soft tissue, tendon, and muscular damage.  It alleviates swelling and reduces healing time.  It has been used and recommended by homeopaths for more than 200 years and is also frequently used by professional athletes.

I am currently using it on my bruised and swollen calf from white water rafting.  Using it as quickly as possible after the injury is ideal, and it has already done wonders for the swelling in my leg.  My first use for it though was much more interesting.  I have prepatellar bursitis in my knee.  This means my bursa (tiny fluid filled sac) on my knee is inflamed which causes severe pain when any pressure is applied to the area (at its worst for me, even the weight of my pants touching my knee causes pain).  The doctor didn't have any treatment options for me other than taking about 2,500 mg of ibuprofen a day and using a prescription anti-inflammatory cream.  I avoid pills and prescriptions unless really necessary, so I opted for my Arnica Rescue along with some ice.  The arnica ointment  has really worked well in relieving the inflammation as well as speeding up my healing time.

What do you use to relieve swelling?


  1. I love arnica! I actually have it in a suger pill form. I got it for my son when he had all his wisdom teeth out. He had no problems with the surgery (no impacted teeth), but he came home and started taking them and I kid you not he was out eating steak the next day for lunch (28 hours after surgery) and I sent him back to school the next day. Miracle stuff!
    I recently had an eye laser treatment and didn't want to take the Rx for the pain and I took arnica and it took care of my eye.
    We also love birch essential oil for aches/pains/brusing when we can apply it to the skin.

  2. Arnica is awesome, I got mine as Arnica Oil with a roller ball, which is really great cause I can just put it where I need it and not waste any. It pretty much makes the pain stop as soon as I put it on. I use it anytime I hurt myself. The stuff I got is from It really works!

  3. I like arnica. It works well on bruises and swelling.
    Pineapple juice also works well with internal swelling.

  4. I don't know quite how to put it.
