Made with fresh mountain daisies (Arnica montana) from the French Alps, Boiron Arnicare Ointment relieves everyday muscle aches and pains without a traditional strong medicine smell. Use it at the first sign of back, neck, knee, shoulder, and leg pain; stiffness; swelling from injuries; bruises; or after a surgery.* The thick petroleum jelly base adheres longer to skin, maintaining contact between the affected area and the healing agent. It is designed for injuries that require a longer healing time. A homeopathic medicine, Arnicare Ointment does not contain menthol, camphor, methyl salicylate, capsaicin, fragrances, dyes, or parabens. It will not mask symptoms of a more serious condition.
Arnicare Ointment is available over the counter in a 1 oz tube. Boiron’s pain relief line includes a gel, cream, tablet, and arthritis pain formula.
