Arnica for soothing and healing. A panacea for all kinds of inflammation, Arnica is a remedy for bruised souls helping to soothe deep hurt, as well as literally reducing the swelling caused by sprains and other injuries. Also, good for insect bites, easing the pain of arthritis and soothing tired, aching muscles.
