A must for the first aid cabinet
on 2 July 2012
This is simply the best arnica-based product I've ever used. It's cold when first applied but absorbs quickly (unlike arnica cream), doesn't stain and doesn't leave any sticky film. Don't be tempted to slap loads on, start with a thin layer, don't rub it but let it absorb, then if necessary add another thin layer.
I use it for a medical condition that causes muscle pain in the legs, and also for arthritis resulting from an old car accident injury. It takes effect within minutes and can be applied as often as needed. However it really came into its own recently when I twisted the collateral muscles in one knee and badly bruised the other. I slapped this on both knees as soon as I got home; on the bruised knee it was too late to stop the bruising, but it did reduce and then clear the bruising quite quickly. With the other knee, the injury healed in half the time that the doctor had told me to expect which had the added bonus of getting off the painkillers much quicker!
A must for the first aid cabinet for any knocks, bruises, muscle pains and strains and arthritis and suitable for all ages, even toddlers.
