How to use:


Arnica is the best herb around to help with everyday bumps and bruises! It’s been used for centuries to help relieve stubbed toes, pinched fingers, sore muscles, and more. This herbal salve helps to reduce pain, minor swelling, and bruising. It’s the go-to herbal product for topical pain relief. Arnica Salve helps shrink the appearance of bumps and bruises quick! Topical use only. Do not use it on open wounds or near the mouth.


  • Helps with minor pain
  • Helps with bruising 
  • Promotes wound healing
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation 
  • Reduces the occurrence of scarring 
  • Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties


Q: Is Arnica safe for open wounds?

A: We advise against using arnica on open wounds (All-Purpose Salve is a better option here), but a small amount is likely not going to hurt.  If you accidentally use it on a bump that has a small cut, don’t worry!  Avoid on larger wounds.

Q: How does this compare to homeopathic arnica?  Is this homeopathic?

A: This is herbal arnica.  We take whole flowers and infuse them in olive oil.  Homeopathic arnica comes on little pellets and is very dilute.  There are times you may want to use both, depending on what is going on (for example, if you strain a large muscle, taking both would be beneficial).

Q: Is this different or better than creams, gels, or ointments from the store?
A: We think so!  Check the ingredients on other options — most have benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, or other things you don’t want on your skin.  Ours is pure organic olive oil, organic arnica flowers, and candelilla wax — that’s it!

    I get a lot of bruises with 4 going kids around (who do as well) and I am loving this! Super easy to apply. Goes on easy enough that it doesn’t hurt to rub on. Feels nice on my skin and Helps with the pain!

  2. Kaela Vance (verified owner)

    I swear by this product. I have personally witnessed forming bruises disappear when used immediately following an injury (ones where i have banged my leg which usually forms a bruise and I can see the color coming on, and once this was added, the bruise stopped and felt much better). I like the stick because I can just rub on directly that way, but the jar is also nice to be able to scoop out what you want. This is a must have for anyone, especially with young children who are constantly getting bumped.

  3. Beatrice C. (verified owner)

    So my toddler fell off of our kitchen chair, which is a bit high. And fell right on her forehead, ugh! So painful for me also, but anyway I applied this Arnica salve immediately after and continued applying throughout the night, I would say I did about 3 or 4 times and not even kidding, her bump and bruise was significantly down the next morning. I wish I took a pic of the before but ofcourse didn’t think of that, it looked sooo bad, the bumped was extremely raised and the bruised began appearing and darkened with time. But by morning it was like she had not hit herself as hard as she did. I was definitely amazed and will continue purchasing to always have on hand.

  4. Terza Norton

    A must if you bruise easily or trip over lines painted on the floor.

  5. Erin Fae

    This is a MUST for small children who bruise often. My toddler asks for this each time she finds a bruise on her legs. Works and effectively lessens bruising time.

  6. Meg (verified owner)

    I was so happy to find an arnica product. And so far this stick hasn’t disappointed! I’ve used it on bruises, sore muscle areas, and even a couple of times when I burned my hand–the pain and redness was gone so quickly. This is a remedy everyone should have on hand!

    Arnica has to be one of my new favorite herbs. Between Arnica Salve for bruises and bumps and the All-Purpose Salve for scrapes/broken skin, our every-day first aid needs are pretty much covered – and with five kids in the house, both seem to get used at least once a day :-). Snuggles and kisses are good as far as they go, but it’s nice to have something to put on little “owies” that will actually help their bodies heal faster! I find that I especially appreciate having my arnica salve on hand for young toddlers and all the bumps that come with learning how to walk. It seems to alleviate the pain as well as speed the healing time significantly. My toddler fell into the corner of a desk a couple months back and had a huge welt and a bump on her forehead; I nursed her and put some arnica salve on it and within a few minutes she was feeling fine. The next day you could hardly see any kind of mark where it had happened. It was amazing! I keep one of these salve sticks in my purse for when we’re out. The small stick does last a fairly long time (even with how much we use it!), but I’m happy that there is a larger size available now too.

    I used this postpartum on my abdomen instead of Tylenol. It worked wonders. I was not sure what my pain level would be after my third but did not want to use toxic Tylenol. I found this and never wanted Tylenol as this was all I needed for the postpartum cramping. Thank you Earthley!

  9. Mindy Ameno (verified owner)

    Badly sprained my ankle this summer and used Arnica Salve for pain and swelling. It definitely helped with swelling and took the edge off of the pain I was having. Have also used this for bumps and bruises that my children have gotten and they also noticed pain reduction. This will be kept on hand all of the time in our house!

  10. sw20 (verified owner)

    I was hesitant about this product truly working but boy was I wrong! Works great for headaches and sore muscles!

  11. Sierra (verified owner)

    I love this arnica salve! We switched to this from the Boiron brand because the ingredients in here are cleaner. As a mom of young children, arnica is a must! We use it on bumps and bruises mostly, but also on sore muscles and even on the head for headaches. I’ll be getting the tub next time because it’s a well used and loved product in our home!

  12. esaade (verified owner)

    This actually helped the pain however the stick fell apart. It became mushy and watery and hard to use. It did require few applications as it wears out quickly

  13. Venessa

    My hubby always has a sore back. So I got the Arnica salve for him. This is the first time he has asked for a reliever he likes. I run the salve down his spine and across the top of his shoulders, a big ‘T’.

  14. Emily Diedrich (verified owner)

    A must if you have a little boy! He has bumped his head several times and every time I put the arnica salve on it, it heals so quick and the bruising goes way down or sometimes even goes away! I have several of these on hand!

  15. Katie

    Great concept but I don’t think it was strong enough. It did nothing for my neck pain. Will keep on hand and use for bruising.

  16. Jordan

    I bruise pretty easily & this stuff has saved me from looking like a disaster! Bruises are now gone within a few days instead of lingering!

  17. Kristina Maness (verified owner)

    I bought this to help my husband with some persistent muscle soreness, but I’m the one that ended up using it after doing some heavy lifting in the garden. It definitely helped ease the pain. And the applicator is super convenient.

  18. Kristin Radke (verified owner)

    Love this! I always try to keep it in my purse and nightstand. One of my shoulders regularly gets tight and aches from stress and house tasks, but once I apply the roll-on arnica, it’s like magic! The pain eases right away. I so love having this handy and frequently recommend it to others. So simple yet effective.

  19. Brianna (verified owner)

    This stuff really is great. There isn’t really a smell to it at all and it’s very easy to apply from the tube. My son fell and hit his forehead the other day. It instantly started to swell up and show a purple bruise. I put this on immediately and seriously within an hour or so there was no bruising. We’re on day 3 and all that’s left is a small scratch. Will continue to buy this and recommend to everyone!

  20. Amanda Nkamwesiga

    This stuff is amazing. I got it as part of a kit and kind of doubted I’d ever use it. I was so wrong! I accidentally snapped my finger on a mousetrap and it immediately started turning purple and swelling. I remembered the Arnica and rubbed some on a few times through the evening. The next morning my finger/hand looked completely normal! It ached a bit for a day or so, but that’s it! A few weeks later I slammed the top of my foot into a piece of furniture. I grabbed the arnica and rubbed it in. Again, it ached a bit, but absolutely no bruising and swelling was down completely after a couple hours. That’s all it took for me and now I share it with everyone!! Just do yourself a favor and get some!
