Bangs And Bruises Arnica Goo

Regular price $8.00
Rich shea-butter base solid lotion; this formulation is intended to help heal bruising and swelling.  Arnica has been used since forever for its healing properties; this salve is rich in arnica and calendula.  Like all the goos, a little goes a long way--a 2 oz. jar should coat an adult head to toe for about 2 months.   It's organic, it's relatively soft; in hot weather it will melt and go liquid.  Just stick it in the fridge.

Every Goo Has A Story:

As usual, I only think of a goo when something happens.  Bangs and Bruises came about because a few winters ago, when clearing the snow off my car, I slipped on the ice in the driveway.  I went down like a rock for a five-point landing...knees, elbows, and cracked my face on the bumper as I went, resulting in a shiner the size of Manhattan.   Two days later, just about the time the black eye was turning spectacular technicolors, a friend who was over for the afternoon waved a hand at it and said "hey, you know about herbs.... why don't you do something about that?"

Uh, duh.  A little futzing later, and I had an arnica salve that made my black eye go away in a few days, rather than a week and a half.


This is an excellent salve for decreasing bruising.  A friend (as graceful as I  am, poor girl) uses it for her regular driveway falls in winter--it keeps the swelling down when she twists something, and decreases her bruising exponentially.   This is a great salve for taking down swelling from a sprain or clearing up the dinner-plate-sized bruise on your behind after taking a huge fall.  Also, my very smart clientele informs me it's great for dark circles under the eyes and bags under the eyes as well...and er.... ahem...hickies.
