Achy? Creaky? Overdid it at the gym?

Arnica has been used for centuries to treat bruises, muscle pain, and arthritis. It is something everyone should have in their medicine cabinet.

ARNICA

Arnica works by increasing blood circulation, stimulating the activity of white blood cells that perform much of the digestion of congested blood, by dispersing trapped, disorganized fluids from bumped and bruised tissue, joints, and muscles. It has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities that reduce pain and swelling and improve wound healing. It can be used on sore muscles, aching joints, acne, and burns.

Arnica cream can be found at any health food store. You can rub it in to your “ouchy”  areas up to 3 times a day. If you know you’ve overdone it at the gym, rub it in as soon as you can to help stave off the soreness that will come in the morning.
