Meet Nature’s Natural Pain Reliever: Arnica

March 24, 2017

 

arnica group (b)

Next time you’re feelin’ those aches and pains, reach for nature’s antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory herb: arnica. Used as a cure for everything from sprains to eczema, this plant has been used as a homeopathic remedy for centuries.

What is Arnica?

arnica-montana

Known as Arnica montana, Arnica is a bright, yellow, daisy-like flower found in the mountains and upland meadows in Europe, Siberia, and North America. Legend has it that this plant was first discovered by humans after watching injured goats trek up a mountain in search of Arnica to heal themselves. The first documented medical use of this flowering plant dates back to the 1500s; although, many historians believe it has been used in healing remedies since the Middle Ages.

How does Arnica work?

Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, Arnica is packed with the natural chemical, helenalin. This potent compound works to relieve trauma and speed up the healing time of bruises. Arnica reduces swelling by stimulating the body’s white blood cells. This causes a breakdown of fluid and excess blood that’s trapped within muscles, joints, and bruises. But that’s not all. To speed up recovery from bruises, it increases the number of white blood cells within the body to stop busted capillaries from bleeding into the surrounding tissue. Along with aiding in swelling and bruises, it’s been proven to treat and temporarily relieve pain. Recent studies have even found that it’s a safe alternative to treat arthritis pain.

Ask the professional.

To get the inside scoop on arnica, we asked our 2nd Street District massage therapist, Terri, how she uses our popular Arnica Balm during massages. “Arnica can be used in any massage, not just a Deep Tissue or Sports Massage,” she says. When treating a client, Terri will ask them which specific areas need more attention. Before the massage, she’ll pre-treat certain areas that clients have indicated as target spots in order to relax the muscles and alleviate any soreness they might feel after their treatment. After the massage, Terri will tell her clients how to use the balm to soothe muscle or joint pain. “I suggest that clients use the balm before working out or doing any type of physical activity to loosen up the joints and muscles. Then, after any strenuous workouts, I’ll tell them to get a small amount of the balm and really work it into a particular area.”

Our Staff Picks: March Beauty Favorites

March 19, 2014

“My favorite service is our new Ultimate Pedicure. Getting a pedicure is usually about maintenance for me: soft feet, seasonal polish and a moment to relax. However, when I finally start to relax, my pedicure is usually ending and I’m left wanting more. The Ultimate Pedicure provides that extra massage and luxury that I am looking for. Almost a full hour and a half devoted to my tired calves and achy feet is the best!” — Teresa S., manager at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria

“I love Radiance from CosMedix for my daytime serum. It gives me a supple glow that I get compliments on all the time! I strive for healthy skin and Radiance helps me achieve just that. It feels great under my mineral makeup, too. A trick I like to use is to always make sure my face is damp (toner is great for this) before applying serum — this allows you to use less product (one pump is sufficient) and it spreads much easier.” — Brooke M., assistant manager at milk + honey 2nd Street District

“The Signature Plus Facial is a dream come true for mature, stressed, or damaged skin. You enjoy our signature facial with cleansing, toning, extractions, mask, massage and moisture, then are treated to particle-free microdermabrasion that leaves your skin so soft and glowing. This treatment has helped me get rid of hyper-pigmentation and feel more confident about my skin.” — Emilie S., milk + honey HR

“My favorite can’t-live-without product is Kevin.Murphy Young Again oil. It’s great for all hair types and not greasy. It has repaired my damaged ends and continues to keep my hair shiny and healthy. Pro tip: it’s great on dry skin, too!” — Katie A., manager at milk + honey Arboretum Market

“I love Reflect by CosMedix! It’s a spray-on sunscreen that is light and not greasy. With the sunnier summer months approaching, it is essential! It’s the best! The spray-on SPF by Coola is also the bomb. It’s great for chasing down my nephews at the pool and spraying them quickly and easily. My nephew Connor loves it too. He says it makes his skin feel silky.” — Kelley W., assistant manager at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria

“Designed to thicken and plump thinning hair and prevent hair loss, the Kevin Murphy Plumping.Line helps with hair growth while boosting the appearance of fullness. I can tell an immediate difference in the texture and density of my hair after I shower. It’s milk + honey’s newest miracle.” — Summer L., general manager at milk + honey

“‘A Solution’ in the ResultsRx line is my fave. I love it because it has both vitamin A and alphahydroxys. It helps to break up dead layers of skin and promote faster cell turnover.” — Maureen, esthetician at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria

“I’m loving the Citrus Blossom Dermabrasion by EcoInventive. This all-organic exfoliant smells great and leaves your skin feeling like you just got a facial. It has a jojoba oil base so it moisturizes while it exfoliates. Pro tip: cleanse using the Citrus Blossom Dermabrasion, then cleanse once more with normal routine for freshest effect.” — Shawn, esthetician at milk + Honey Hill Country Galleria

“Aveda’s Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisturizer is the perfect sunscreen + hydration + skin tone secret weapon for you. Infused with finely-powdered tourmaline, it boosts skin’s energy and radiance and stays on for the entire day — even through exercise.” — Emilie S, milk + honey HR

“Let’s not forget about Fresh Hair from Kevin Murphy – it’s the BEST! I can go much longer in between blowouts because it keeps my hair oil-free and smelling great.” — Brooke M., assistant manager at milk + honey 2nd Street District

“The Ultrasonic Treatment is my favorite. It is a short, relaxing service that leaves my skin glowing afterwards. If my skin is feeling dull, it brightens me right up!” — Chris W., milk + honey HR assistant

“One of my very favorites for perfect natural curls is the Deva Curl Light Defining Gel. With your hair wet, apply a generous amount to your hands and scrunch it up into your hair. When your hair is dry, shake the curls loose – the gel won’t leave any hard or sticky residue! Just soft beautiful curls.” — Alanah M., assistant manager at milk + honey 2nd Street District
