Arnica is probably one of the most widely known and prescribed herbs. It has been used for centuries by herbalists and medicine folk for its beneficial effects in reducing pain and bruising associated with common injuries, and is also thought to decrease joint pain, improve local blood circulation and reduce swelling.
This herb is commonly known as St John's Wort. Its historical use has been for the relief of pain associated with local nerve damage such as that found in common neck and back problems, degenerative joint arthritis, and sporting type injuries.
This soothes irritated tissue, reduces swelling and acts as a muscle relaxant. It is often found in cosmetics, in wound salves, and even eyewashes.
Oil of Peppermint
Essential oil of peppermint is used to relieve pain. It may also increase local blood flow, relieve chronic stiffness and remove waste products from the area of injury.

How is Anti-Flamme Crème different from other pain creams which give you a ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ sensation ?
Pain creams which “heat you up" or “cool you down” are classified as “counter-irritants” and usually either contain menthol (cool sensation) or a hot pepper extract called capsaicin (hot sensation). When these substances are applied to the skin, they create a “new irritation” or “counter-irritation” relative to the actual source of pain. This “new or counter-irritation” actually works by distracting the brain from the original source of your pain. However, “counter-irritants” do little to address the actual cause of your pain. So, after the effects of the menthol or capsaicin wear off, your pain simply returns. These products tend to have either a strong medicine odor, and/or irritate the skin, especially after multiple applications. Anti-Flamme Crème which only has a mild and soothing scent, does not just distract you from the pain, it actually helps to reduce the bruising, swelling, inflammation or muscle spasm that is causing your pain.
