ARNICA

This is nature’s way of “self-medicating.” Arnica, is known for its topical pain relief properties and rapid recovery benefits. It contains fancy organic compounds helenalin and thymol which reduce inflammation and help relieve pain associated with bruises, soft tissue injuries and muscle soreness. This is for external use only, so don’t go spraying on your bananas – unless, of course, your banana is bruised…(sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).

BALSAM POPLAR

This is the original All Good. Traditionally used in Native American medicine for sprains, inflammation and muscle pains, Balsam Poplar comes from – wait for it – Poplar Trees. The tree sap is rich in Vitamin C and salicylic acid (natural aspirin) making it an excellent anti-inflammatory. Good for physical aches and pains. Unfortunately won’t do anything to soothe an achy breaky heart.

CALENDULA

You know in My Big Fat Greek Wedding how the uncle puts Windex on every scrape, cut, bruise and pimple? Well that’s how we feel about Calendula. Derived from the pot marigold, Calendula helps reduce inflammation and heal rashes, bruises, minor cuts and sores, prevents scarring, soothes eczema and insect bites, and also works as an insect repellent. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also highly effective in treating minor burns (including sunburns) and even promotes sleep thanks to aromatics that induce relaxation and relieve tension headaches. In certain applications, it’s used as a sleep aid, antispasmodic, antidepressant and analgesic. Save your Windex for the windows.

COMFREY

This is some Harry Potter magic. Comfrey, historically called “knitbone” or “bruisewort”, is known for its rapid healing powers. It contains allantoin which stimulates cell proliferation and expedites the healing of sprains, broken bones, arthritic joints and other wounds. BROKEN. BONES. It’s also effective in treating eczema, dermatitis and viral skin infections. Like we said, magic.

GREEN TEA

We’re not going to argue with thousands of years of “5 Star” customer reviews. Legend has it that in 2,737BC the Chinese Emperor Shennong was boiling water under the shade of a Camellia sinensis tree when dried leaves floated into the water pot, changing the water’s color to green. Shennong tried the new green tea infusion and was pleased by its flavour and restorative properties, thus establishing the first Chinese medicine. Fast forward to modern science and we can attribute that to the high polyphenol antioxidant activity found in green tea. This synergistically enhances the sun-protective qualities of zinc oxide by stopping free radicals, protecting against skin cancer, and helping reduce inflammation from rosacea. It’s also great with fortune cookies.

LAVENDER

When it’s not smelling like a bridal suite, lavender is working like an ox. It’s got astringent, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties and soothes pain from injuries, irritations, and wasp or bee stings. Lavender provides nutrients for the skin to regenerate new tissue and heal wounds, so it’s great for treating cuts, scrapes, bruises, minor infections and burns. We love it so much, we’d marry it.

ROSE

All the rage in skincare and reality dating shows these days, we’ve been handing out roses for a while. With a concentrated source of Vitamin C and high in Vitamins A, D and E, rosehip oil contains antioxidant flavonoids (mmm, flavonoids) that reduce the effects of aging on the skin and can contribute to cancer prevention. Heck yeah, we accept this rose!

ST JOHN’S WORT

St. John’s Wort is the Miracle Max of ingredients – a little rough around the edges but capable of bringing Wesley back to life (Princess Bride… anyone?). That’s to say, it’s a pain miracle worker. It soothes aches from gout and arthritis, works as an analgesic for neuralgia, backaches and sciatica, and can soothe tennis elbow and general joint inflammation. Use a bit and have fun storming the castle.

YARROW

No, this isn’t a deep-cut Game of Thrones character. Yarrow is used topically for wounds, cuts and abrasions. It relaxes peripheral blood vessels, cleans wounds, encourages clotting and reduces swelling. (Its Latin name, Achillea millefolium, actually comes from its association with the Greek warrior, Achilles, who used the herb to heal his soldier’s battle wounds). Beyond just healing your wound, Yarrow can be planted in the garden to combat soil erosion. Field-tested against White Walkers and Lannisters.
