I swear by Arnica gel and have been a long time fan of SBC's Arnica Skincare Gel (15-years). Arnica is a natural, plant-based gel derived from the plant Arnica Montana. It's a non-oily gel that is a light and easy to apply. It absorbs quickly into the skin and works wonders in soothing the affected area.
I was on the last of my large 1ltr bottle of SBC Arnica gel when SBC approached me and offered to send me a bottle for review - I love the stuff and needed a new bottle anyhow, so I said yes please! I've always bought my SBC from QVC over the years, but you can purchase directly from the SBC website too.
It's one of my must-have bathroom cabinet staple and can be used by and for all ages. The SBC Arnica comes in an easy pump bottle, and I find a little goes a long way. You massage it into the area of the skin and can re-apply as often as needed.
When I burnt myself, i.e. Iron burn, I applied the gel several times to stop the skin from blistering. I find the gel works by soothing the heat and the cooling Arnica gel brings immediate relief. Also, I use it often when we are out on our woodland walks, the kids brush against stinging nettles, I apply arnica gel to the affected area. Or if they have a bump and a bruise appears, I apply it to the bruise every day until it starts to fade.
Arnica preparations are said to have shown wound healing, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving properties. I've been using SBC Arnica Gel for a lot of years now and use it for an array of things, and highly recommend it.
In addition, I buy and use other SBC gels, another favourite of mine is their collagen gel, which contains marine collagen and is a nice light gel, and great for hydrating the skin - they have some lovely products, it is worth popping over to their website to see what they offer.
