Arnica and Birch Oil is good for bruises, pain, and inflammation. It also makes a great base for massage oil. I use it in my own personal blend of essential oils for pain.
Applied to the skin, arnica has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s. Arnica oil contains helenalin, a potent anti-inflammatory, making it a must-have for any natural first aid kit.
Its ability to reduce pain and disease-causing inflammation when applied to the skin comes in handy for all kinds of bruises, aches, sprains and even arthritis flare-ups. It can even be applied to insect bites to reduce irritation and inflammation. Arnica oil can also be used to relieve areas of stiffness resulting from flying or long-distance driving.
Birch is a natural pain reliever containing salicylate, the compound found in aspirin. Salicylate relieves the inflammation and pain associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and generalized muscle pain. Salicylate deters the body's production of certain prostaglandins that are linked to inflammation, pain, and fever among other things. An other reason birch calms arthritis and gout is it's cleansing diuretic action that eliminates toxins and excess water. Sweet birch can have good results against cellulite.
The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions of birch bark support it's traditional uses in skin disorders such as eczema. Traditional healers have long considered the leaves of the white and silver birch effective for skin rashes and hair loss.
