Arnica Oil is an herbal oil , not an essential oil, and is made by infusing the flowers of the plant Arnica montana in sunflower oil at a ratio of 5/1. The genus name is thought to come from the Greek “arni” which means “lamb” and is a reference to the soft, hairy leaves of the plant.
Arnica is also known as Mountain Tobacco, Leopard’s bane and Wolfsbane. This infused Oil has been reported in herbal lore to be helpful in rubs and massages to relieve routine sprains and bruises and is sometimes used by those who participate in sports.
Other Carrier Oil, Body Oils & Lotions
We also have quite a few other carrier oils (aka base oils & vegetable oils) and lotions available: Carrier Oils & Lotions.
And we have also created many “ready-to-use” Body Oils & Lotions, each one containing just the right amount of essential oils blended into our special massage base (a combination of Sweet Almond, Grapeseed & Sunflower Oils).
All our Artisan Aromatics essential oils, aromatherapy blends and oil products are therapeutic quality. Using our 20+ years of experience, we’ve gathered the finest quality oils from around the world. To ensure that our oils are as fresh and potent as possible, our oils are bottled by hand here in the USA only after we receive each order.
