Arnica Montana - A herb, commonly just called Arnica, that has been used for centuries by herbalists and medicine folk for its beneficial effects in reducing pain and bruising associated with common injuries. Arnica is properly one of the most widely known and prescribed herbs, particularly in placed like Germany where over 100 drug products are available with Arnica in the formulation. It was not long ago that many pharmacies in New Zealand still dispensed Arnica based cremes for such complaints but this lost popularity with the availability of easily prepared and cheaper synthetic anti-inflammatories. Arnica has gained much popularity I Homoeopathic circles for it's use as the first remedy for any trauma. (In Anti-Flamme we use the pure herb extract and it is not subject to the homeopathic principles of destruction by strong aromatic substances such as peppermint.)

Again we use a pure herb extract in our preparation. Calendula Officinalis : Calendula is known for its soothing action on irritated tissue.
