Arnica Nettle Gel and Arnica Nettle Spray are amazing remedies for burns and should be in every kitchen and medicine cabinet. These remedies work best when applied immediately after injury. Keep the area moist and reapply whenever pain returns.
Dwarf stinging nettle (Urtica urens) is a smaller, annual version of the perennial, common nettle (Urtica dioica), yet it has a greater number of stings per surface area and is preferred for burns and bites. This plant is covered with hollow silica hairs that also contain histamine and other substances that produce a stinging sensation as well as redness and swelling. For this reason, it is employed homeopathically for all manner of burns as well as insect bites and red, itchy rashes.
Arnica grows in granite mountain regions like the Swiss Alps (Arnica montana) and the Rocky Mountains (Arnica chamissonis), preferring moist areas such as along streams and in meadows. It is an excellent remedy for soft tissue damage, especially when used immediately after an injury. When combined with dwarf nettle, it dramatically assists recovery from burns and insect bites.
The bright orange Calendula flower is well-known to counter inflammation and prevent infection, hence Arnica Nettle Gel and Arnica Nettle Spray can also be used for first aid treatment of cuts and abrasions.
Thuja (Arbor Vitae tree) and Symphytum (comfrey) are included in our gel and spray remedies because they promote a renewal of deeper tissue layers. Lastly, colloidal silver supports regeneration and is an anti-bacterial.
