This oil is also called mountain tobacco or as a suggestive sneeze. Arnica is not a specific plant, but it is the most common and used in botany (Arnica montana L). It is located in the high areas of Europe and America. Even if it is not in danger of disappearing, its quantity is smaller due to polarity. This plant is very sensitive to polar.
Even if the preparation is mixed with other types of essential oils, it is very common in herbalists and para pharmacy, or another option is to prepare it at home. To do this, follow the following proportion and ingredients:
- Put 2 tablespoons of dried flowers that you can dehydrate or buy in this condition, because the fresh ones are not worth it, because they will have high water content.
- Then add ¼ liter of base oil (I recommend almond, but you can also apply sunflower, jojoba or avocado)
- And in the last phase, it is left to macerate in a dark place for a week, then strain the infusion and you can use it.
The medicinal properties of arnica oil are:
- Massaging the skin of this oil produces heat, and this heat causes the blood to flow faster. Once the blood flows faster it will be more effective in treating bruises, because it prevents bruising.
- In freezing processes, it prevents blisters and pain.
- Besides all this is also antibacterial and antiviral, so it has a very important role in the failure of acne and skin infections, as long as there are no open wounds or bleeding.

- And last but not least, it is used to treat the discomfort of arthritis, dislocations, dislocations, swelling, bruising, inflammation of the skin and even phlebitis.
