Have you used arnica? I don’t know of anything else that can do what it does. It has a prime spot in my medicine closet.
Let me tell you all about it.
Arnica has been used medicinally since the 1500’s. It’s a perennial with yellow-orange flowers similar to daisies. It’s the dried flower heads that are used in medicinal preparations. I think the dried flowers smell a little like chamomile.
Arnica is the best treatment I know for minor injuries that may cause bruising or swelling.
And living in a house with three males…we have plenty of opportunity to use it!
