Suffering from Seasonal Arthritis?
Published: 01/12/2013

If you experience aches and pains when the seasons change, consider arnica (Arnica montana). This daisy-like mountain flower is used traditionally to help relieve discomfort associated with bruises, sprains, soreness and swelling/muscle spasms from sports activity, as well as general muscle and joint pain. Try rubbing tincture, ointment, cream, or gel on sore spots, but don’t use on broken skin. To make an arnica compress, mix one tablespoon of arnica tincture in one pint of purified water. Dip a gauze pad in the mixture, then put it on the troublesome joint or bruised area. Look for pure arnica extract for preparing topical applications.
