Arnica is a genus with about 30 perennial, herbaceous species, belonging to the sunflower family. The genus name Arnica may be derived from the Greek arna, “lamb”, in reference to the soft, hairy leaves.

Several species, such as Arnica montana and A. chamissonis, contain helenalin, a sesquiterpene lactone that is a major ingredient in anti-inflammatory preparations (used mostly for bruises). Arnica has been used by people for hundreds of years, even going back to the 1500’s to relieve pain and heal injuries.

Arnica is also known by the names Mountain Tobacco and, somewhat confusingly, Leopard’s bane and Wolfsbane—two names


Several species of the echinacea plant are used to make medicine from its leaves, flower, and root.

Sometimes people apply echinacea to their skin to treat boils, abscesses, skin wounds, ulcers, burns, eczema, psoriasis, UV radiation skin damage, herpes simplex, bee stings, and hemorrhoids.

Helpful Tips

Sleep heals!

If you’re not getting enough quality sleep, then you’re putting your body at a recovery disadvantage from the beginning. Ensure you get 8+ hours of sleep as a minimum before a heavy training day. Sleep deprivation aggravates chronic pain and causes slow injury recovery. Indeed, you could well be suffering the consequences of sleep deprivation even if you get a “normal” 6–7 hours per night.

Eat wisely!

Understanding how your body works is the first step to understanding how you need to eat in order to fuel your body with the right stuff. Plenty diets and eating plans are unsustainable, leaving you with a sense of failure. If you can follow this simple principle, and apply it in your everyday life, you’re one step closer to achieving your nutritional goals – focus on eating three portions of protein per day.

Strength training!

Strength training is an effective exercise that few people enjoy — and most choose to underestimate. It is a key component in promoting faster rehabilitation and healing. Consistently challenging one’s muscles is great for general fitness and is a terrific way to get fit or stay fit. Plus, stretching does not aggravate existing injuries or cause new ones. Gyms may be intimidating for beginners, but they provide precise and safe control of the muscles you’re working on.

Love water, plenty of it!

Drinking plenty of water is one of your best defences against muscle soreness and pain. Avoid dehydration, which causes a significant drop in sporting performance. It may also cause you to experience cramps, heat stress and strokes. Drink plenty of water before, during and after exercises.

Warm up properly!

One of the best things you can do to prevent muscle soreness is to perform a joint mobility warm-up and then do activity-specific exercises on the muscles you are focusing on during that session. Your warm-up should be for both general preparedness and also specific to the activity that you’re going to do.

Love your protein!

Protein is one of the most essential parts to any healthy diet. Not only are proteins the building blocks for just about every part of your body, but they also help you to build and maintain muscle, organs and cells. These same proteins are also vital to enzyme and hormone production. Basically, if you’re not eating enough protein, your body probably isn’t working as well as it should be.

I used to wake up every morning with aches in my arms and some mornings it hurt so much when I try to straighten them, but since I’ve been rubbing Herbal Iceman at night my joint pains are almost gone, I would recommend it to everyone.  Thank you Herbal Iceman for this.
