How to use

Apply a small amount of Arnica Massage Oil to damp skin. Massage in a circular motion towards the heart until it is absorbed, paying particular attention to muscles that are tired, sore or overworked.

Soothes and relieves aching muscles.

Weleda Arnica Massage Oil is an intensive, warming body oil that's been a staple of massage therapists for 93 years to soothe muscle soreness and ease muscle aches caused by overuse or exercise.

Wildcrafted arnica flower extract, proven to soothe sore muscles, helps ease pain and boast a warming effect. A base of sunflower seed oil and olive oil nourish and hydrate skin as birch extract delivers detoxifying effects. While your skin soaks in the muscle-soothing properties, a pure, certified natural by NATRUE essential oil fragrance of lavender and rosemary helps calm your mind.

With body and mind nourished and relaxed, tight, aching muscles quickly become a thing of the past.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract

This plant blooms on unfertilized grasslands throughout Scandinavia, Southern Europe and mid-Asia between July and August . The golden yellow blossoms are harvested as soon as they are fully developed. Arnica is made-up of many components, including flavonoids, Silicic Acid, cartonoids and essential oils. The extract from this plant serves as a fungicide and as an immune-stimulant. Medically, Arnica is used externally as an application for bruises, sprains, stings or wounds (see A Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica by John Clarke, MD, 3rd ed. 1987, vol. I, p. 171). Also used after traumatic injuries: see Boericke. In body care Arnica provides a layer of warmth and helps to soothe tired and tight muscles. WELEDA cooperates with different partners in cultivating Arnica. The arnica is harvested at its peak in the early morning hours, carefully cleaned and freshly delivered to WELEDA. Here the plants are processed immediately.

Sunflower (Helianthus Annuus) Seed Oil

Commonly referred to as Sunflower Oil, this light-colored oil, native to Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean region and North and Central America, comes from the seeds of the Sunflower plant. The oil provides a rich source of unsaturated linoleic and oleic fatty acids and Vitamin E. Sunflower Seed Oil is soothing, calming and caring to the skin.

Birch (Betula Alba) Leaf Extract

Commonly referred to as Birch, the leaves and bark from which the extract is derived come from the Birch Tree. Birch is known for its purifying and detoxifying effects. The plant encourages the excretion of fluids and promotes metabolic activities.

    We have purchased many Weleda products and have been extremely satisfied. We love the oils and the skin food. We are very active and these have been life savers!

    Wonderful oil! Husband has arthritic pain in back and knees. After only using 2 X he has felt a big difference.

    I use the Arnica Massage Oil on myself and on my disabled mother. She experiences relief from pain and stiffness with this oil. I always make sure I have 2 bottles on hand so as to never run out. It smells gorgeous, and when warmed up in your hands helps to heal sore muscles. I use many of Weleda products and adore all of them!

    A long time ago when I was a FT dancer & massage therapist, I used to use Arnica Massage Oil to take the kink out of my overworked muscles & to unlock the muscles of my massage clients. I always LOVED its smell. 20 years later, after 40 years of dancing (& no health insurance either!), my lower left leg is paying the price. The ankle was broken 6 times from too much tap dancing!! The problem now is a swollen, brown, weakened calf & foot. I have been using the Arnica Massage Oil on both legs & wow, I am so glad I went out of my way to re-find this fabulous oil. Its ingredients tingle their way into my muscle cells & stimulate my circulatory & lymphatic systems to do their thing! Thank you so much.

    I had a total knee replacement early in April 2009 and started using Weleda Arnica Massage Oil on my leg right after the surgery. On my first post op visit to get my staples out, the nurse remarked that she had never seen skin so free of bruising or an scar so smooth. I have continued to use Arnica Oil several times a day including taking it to my physical therapy appointments. They used it as a massage oil prior to my therapy exercises.

    Now, after close to six weeks post op, my scar is smooth, very supple, and fading nicely. I adore this stuff. I rave about it to my friends and family. It has no negatives. It smells great, absorbs qiuckly, and works to reduce pain and bruising.

    Anyone who has ever had a total knee replacement, knows how awfully painful it is, and how hard it is to get back to normal function. Weleda Weleda Arnica Massage Oil really HELPS make it easier. I am ahead of my recovery schedule and I believe this oil has helped me get there.

    Thank you very much for a quality product.

    I recently purchased some Weleda Arnica Massage Oil for my husband (I do this every year; he loves it!). There was a small sample packet of almond moisturizer with this oil. Not thinking he would be inclined to try this, I usurped it. Yesterday, he started to look for it, thinking he would like to try the difference between this and his usual Kiss My Face. Oh no, I had to tell him that I stole it! Is there any way that I could obtain another sample of this moisturizer? I will be glad to pay for the sample and will be really grateful for your assistance.

    Thank you,

    Caitlin M
