I love Arnica! A number of years ago, I was walking my dog in the snow around my block, slipped & fell hard and directly onto both my knees! Made it home, and slathered the arnica on both knees. I'd say both bruises were @3-4 inches in diameter. Well, within a few hours the pain was gone, and in about 3-4 days no more bruises.

Now that I'm older, bruises takes months to disappear. Got a quarter size bruise the other day and read here on Earth Clinic that arnica gel is great for bruises so tried a gel I have that has arnica in it. The day after I put it on I could tell it was working. After 3 days of putting it on twice a day, the bruise was gone.

This stuff works like a miracle. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself. I recently smashed the distal phalanx (smallest bone) of my pinkie. My fingertip swelled to the size and color of a grape in a matter of minutes. I applied a thin layer of Arnica Cream (which I bought at my local health food store) and literally watched as the swelling and bruising disappeared to almost nothing overnight. I also use Arnica frequently on my toddler boys, the youngest of which manages to incur knots on his forehead at an alarming rate. Same story. Goose eggs all but disappear overnight; swelling and bruising are down to just a small mark. It even works on blood blisters. (My aunt, a Farsi accupuncturist, introduced me to this stuff and I am SO grateful!)

I had bruise on my leg that was a very dark purple and didn't fade after 1 1/2 weeks. I tried ACV and witch hazel and nothing happened. I bought some Arnica gel at a health food store Wednesday mid day and applied 3-4 times a day by gently rubbing in. By Saturday morning the bruise was barely visible. I could see the bruise fading each day, I've never seen anything quite like it.

I love arnica gel for sore muscles and also bruising. I tend to bruise easily and found this to be an excellent remedy. I also take extra iron when I am bruised!
