There’s nothing like a good physical workout to make us feel happy and alive, and reduce stress. But as the endorphins wear off, the euphoria can give way to feelings of tiredness, heavy limbs and aching muscles and joints.
At times like this, many people turn to arnica as a traditional natural remedy. Prized for its anti-inflammatory properties, over 150 active compounds have been found in arnica, making it a great natural sports remedy to support your post-exercise recovery.
“Arnica helps me train more often”
Endurance athlete Laura Try says:
‘I use Weleda Arnica Massage Oil as a body moisturiser and treatment each morning after my shower to take care of my skin and ease any achy muscles. At the end of the day, I stretch, mobilise and massage the Arnica Massage Balm into the tight areas of my body whilst sitting in the living with my housemates. Twice a week I have a warm bath with the Arnica Muscle Soak, which is my absolute favourite thing to do. I could lie in the bath for hours, letting all the goodness soak into my body. And that smell is a dream! I am able to train as frequently as I do because of these products.’
