Arnica

 
A concentrate used for making liniments and rubs for bruises, sprains and rheumatic pain. Is an anti-inflammatory, decongestant and stimulant. Used as an inhalant for respiratory congestion and as an immune stimulant.

Arnica absolute is thick and sticky, more than molasses. It is usually used in alcohol as a rub. My friend Al uses it in body work and has a great method. A dab on the finger applied to the body and a few drops of Ylang (a euphoric and helpful in treating pain) or Lavender or a Hazelnut base oil in the same place. The manual work of the massage or rub does the diluting right there, no waste and great transdermal absorption.
