Arnica Montana Flower Extract, well known bruise and swelling recovery herb. Highly anti-inflammatory – helps rapidly heal bruises, swelling, aches & strains . Known immuno-stimulant to speed rate of healing and aids recovery of muscle and joint injuries.Arnica is a very well researched herbal extract. We use the hydro-alcoholic extract which contains the unique, effective anti-inflammatory chemical helanin. Other muscle rubs which use Arnica infused oil or homeopathic extracts will only contain oil soluble constituents or vibrational energy of the plant and will not have the full range of anti-inflammatory & immuno stimulant properties.For a very small number of people (usually those with a Ragweed plant allergy such as German horticulturists who have had significant exposure in the past), Arnica can cause some low level allergic skin reactions such as red bumps or itching. If this occurs discontinue use. If you have any concerns about the possibility of skin reaction, we recommend you patch test on the skin of your inner wrist. NB: A slight temporary reddening on very delicate skin, such as the facial skin of babies or toddlers, can occur particularly if this is where a bruise or bump has occurred. As long as there is no little raised red lumps, this is normal – it is the healing and immuno-stimulant action of Arnica (increasing the blood flow to the injured area, which works to speed healing, reduce bruising and remove damaged blood cells.)
Arnica Methyl Sulfonylmethane(MSM) Fast acting natural mineral support for recovery of muscle fatigue and injury.Natural mineral powder, found in many leafy plants & vegetables. It is a natural component of human body & skin cells. MSM originates in deep water algae, and forms part of the earth’s sulphur cycle, rising from the sea to the higher atmosphere in the form of DMSO, before returning to Earth dissolved in rain water in the form of MSM, to be absorbed by plants, especially those in the Brassica or Pine families. The mineral MSM is a highly bio-available form of sulphur which is used by our bodies to block pain messages. At Nature’s Nurse we use a very pure form of MSM to give fast acting relief and to assist in absorption of other active ingredients into the body. MSM supplements are highly regarded by arthritis sufferers for natural support of joint swelling and pain.
Methylsulfonylmethane Comfrey Leaf (Symphytum Officinale) Extract of the herb leaf, assists with bruise, strain and injury recovery, help’s strengthen ligaments. High in plant chemical called Allantoin which reduces cross hatching of scar fibres and helps realign scar tissue. Clinical research shows significant effect in improving blood flow to ligaments and tendons, which helps improve healing.Nature’s Nurse use an organic hydro alcoholic extract of the Comfrey leaf (not the root). This part of the comfrey plant does not have any known concerning plant chemicals. Comfrey Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia)
Flower, essential oil, certified organic. A high altitude Bulgarian therapeutic grade essential oil. A gentle soothing therapeutic aroma, promotes rapid healing and helps soothe nerves & reduce stress. NB: We use only the highest quality, New Zealand grown organic essential oil of medicinal Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) - which is regarded by leading aromatherapist as non-allergenic and as safe for topical use on delicate skin, in childhood and pregnancy. True medicinal Lavender essential oil has had thousands of years of human use and is composed mainly of ester compounds. This is a gentle oil with calming and balancing properties. It is known to be anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and a good skin regenerator, along with having calming and soothing properties for emotions. It is useful in easing muscle pain, for headaches and insomnia. Other non medicinal, (lower cost) species of Lavender (Spike, Stoechas, hybrids) are higher in oxides and ketones, which can be more irritant, aggressive and possibly hazardous. The essential oil we use has the highest ever levels of therapeutic constituents, and the lowest level of more aggravating chemicals – it is truly hypoallergenic and therapeutic. We do not use these non-medicinal types of Lavender oils at Nature’s Nurse.
