Soothing Arnica Infused Oil is a great ingredient for your homemade formulations. It is famed for its soothing and relaxing properties. It is a welcome addition to massage oil blends, particularly for post workout massage.
We use Sunflower Oil as the base for all our infused oils, as it the perfect oil for macerating botanical extracts. It is a lightweight oil, with very little scent so it doesn’t affect the extract and it is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids, lecithin, phytosterols and vitamin E. Sunflower Oil is a great emollient and an effective moisturiser, hydrating and nourishing the skin. The therapeutic properties of the plant material are infused within the oil.
All vegetable oils and fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon).
Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil.
Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
Consult your doctor or midwife before using during pregnancy.
Arnica Infused Oil can be used on its own as a base for massage or you can combine it with another carrier oil and your favourite essential oils for a soothing massage oil blend. Sunflower Oil has a medium skin penetration rate, so it is ideal for use in massage as it stays on the skin the ideal amount of time to perform the massage without leaving it greasy. We love Ginger (#118) and Sweet Orange (#105) for a warming muscle rub.
Arnica Infused can be used as a gentle make up remover. Simply apply to a cotton wool pad and sweep across your face and neck to remove dirt and make up.
Can be used in your homemade formulations, such as creams, lotions, balms, serums, body oils, ointments etc.
