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 have searched for a petroleum-free, truly all natural arnica cream for a long time. This was the Earthley product that caused me to research this company and come to love it. Arnica is so great for bangs, bruises and muscle aches! I love this salve stick. It is super easy to use and have on hand at all times. I have one in my purse, one at work, one in the bathroom, and one in the kitchen now. My son pulled a muscle at work a few weeks ago that swelled and bruised pretty ugly. I immediately pulled out the Arnica Salve Stick and lathered him up. We reapplied for three days, but by the end of the first day, he already felt a difference and the bruising was going away. He didn’t miss a day of work and was able to move on with life as if the injury didn’t happen. I am so very grateful to have found Earthley and the Arnica Salve Stick!

    I ordered the arnica salve stick awhile ago but didn’t need it until my granddaughter came to visit after she had taken a bad spill and bruised her elbow.It was deep blue and painful…I remembered my stick so put it to the test!She was immediately amazed and relieved! After a few hours the swelling even went down!Im keeping this product on hand and in my purse!

    My whole family likes this for bumps amd bruises!

  4. Shawna Griffith

    This is a must have product for any household. It gets used often for regular bumps and bruises and heals them fast! But it’s been great for my active older kiddos and husband after sports also.

  5. Katya Sina

    As a mom of two toddlers, this is one of my must-have products. Bruising and swelling goes down in half the time!

  6. marcia

    I was skeptical, had not ever used arnica before- but it works! On sore muscles especially, whether from injuries or just aches from growing or anything else, it is helpful.

    Love being able to apply this effective salve with a tube form. Great for soothing bumps and bruises.

  8. Jessica S. (verified owner)

    This is my go-to for pain relief. I (and the many people I’ve recommended it to) have been impressed by how effective it is…and it offers quick relief. I use it mainly for sciatica, but my husband uses it regularly for back pain from sports injuries. I am grateful I learned of Earthley products through the EWG Healthy Living app, I love the simplicity and purity of their products. Some of my other favorites are the sun shield and leave-in conditioner.

    Being a mom of three rambunctious boys who thing they are the next Spider-Man, this is absolutely the bee’s knees! Bruises rarely pop up after a bump. And if bumps happen, swelling goes down instantly. Don’t know what’d I’d do without this!

  10. Amanda Lester (verified owner)

    This is perfect for in my purse or diaper bag. My daughter broke her arm and it helped keep her pain down. We’ve used it on all sorts of muscle aches and general “growing” pains with great success. Love it!

  11. Erica T (verified owner)

    We love this stick! It’s so great for bruises to help them heal and feel better faster. The label didn’t stay on though. I think that is the only thing I would change about it. But the actual product is amazing!!!

    Helps relieve any pain

  13. Jessi Moss (verified owner)

    We use this Arnica stick for everything! My son has started getting growing pains in his legs and we use the “magic” stick to ease his discomfort! It works great for bruises and bumps we get, as well as sore muscles from working out!

  14. Kylie (verified owner)

    A must have for your first aid kit if you have kids especially. It’s so easy to rub on their bumps and bruises.

  15. Ayla Budrow (verified owner)

    My kids keep this stick in their Taekwondo gear bags. They apply it whenever they get hit or kicked a little to hard or if they’re sore from practice. It alway helps relieve the pain.
