Do you love arnica? If, like me, you have decided long ago that trusting medical science and the FDA isn’t really the only (or best) way to take care of your body, you might already know that arnica is amazing for stuff I can’t explain to you here.
And if you love arnica, you know that comfrey is equally impressive in its ability to fill some of the gaps left by conventional treatments.
This salve contains my own home-brewed concoction of organic olive oil, infused with arnica, comfrey and calendula, combined with beeswax to create a nice thick salve to make you feel great. I have also added camphor and essential oils of eucalyptus and spearmint to further the effects of the salve. Just the right balance of oils and waxes make this a perfect massaging balm – a nice glide persists on the skin until you have massaged the balm to fully penetrate your muscles.
This salve is packaged in a 1 ounce compostable, recyclable paper push up tube, for easy application. Massages while you apply, with no mess, and zero plastic!

Good, now let’s get on with it!
One last thing (I’m mentioning this even though it’s against Etsy’s new policies to do so, because to leave it out just feels wrong to me…), it is very important that you not apply this salve to open wounds or broken skin. Arnica is so incredibly effective at repairing damaged skin, it can seal in infections and cause major problems. Furthermore, the essential oils included in the formula could be irritating to your injury. If you must use it on damaged skin, please, please wash thoroughly first, and remember that you do so at your own risk.
