Arnica is an herb that can be used as a natural remedy to treat broken capillaries. The flower of the arnica plant is used to make a salve or cream that can be applied topically. It is traditionally used to reduce bruising and inflammation.

Arnica should not be used on broken skin.

Recipe for Arnica Cream for Broken Capillaries

  • 1/4 cup dried arnica flowers (ordered online or from a health food store)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • Combine arnica flowers and coconut oil. Keep in a warm, sunny window for two weeks. Or, place jar on a cloth in a crock pot filled with water. Keep crock pot on warm and add water as needed. If you use the crock pot, your oil will be ready in 3 days.
  • Strain out arnica flowers.

Use your arnica oil on your broken capillaries twice a day. You can also use your new oil on bruises or to prevent bruising.

I have seen near immediate temporary results with topical Arnica cream (100 mg Arnica montana 1x per gram) used at bedtime. Used at bedtime I see almost immediate results and wake with reduced appearance. I will be increasing to use post shower and/or daytime application for 2x per day. I was given the cream at a cosmetic facial clinic to treat facial bruising so figured it might help reduce the appearance of my capillaries. Age/sun/large busted?? My upper chest is getting broken capillaries. I'm a 54 post menopausal woman on topical HRT (Wiley). One area to place my hormones is my upper chest but have never applied them there.
