Weleda’s Arnica Bodycare is formulated to support fitness and help prevent injury, naturally. This aromatic range was voted a winner in the 2016 Women’s Running Awards, picking up a bronze accolade in the injury prevention category.

Our testers found that using these products, before and after a workout, soothed tired legs and helped them to aid recovery. Weleda’s Arnica Bodycare range consists of three products:

Arnica Sports Shower Gel: Use this gel to refresh and revive after training. It is naturally fragranced with relaxing lavender oil to calm the mind and revitalising rosemary oil to invigorate the body, to deliver a kick of instant freshness and new energy after exercise. The shower gel uses mild eco-cleansers that help protect the skin’s natural moisture. It has been dermatologically tested to ensure it is skin-friendly as well as eco-friendly, and suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Arnica Massage Oil: A warming rub which helps prevent minor sports injuries and will release tight knotty muscles or comfort old aches and pains that may flare up when put to the test. It is also packed with nourishing plant oils to give dry skin a treat, and naturally fragranced with rosemary and lavender to revive you.

Arnica Muscle Soak: A warm bath will ease aching muscles post-run, and speed recovery. It helps soothe body and mind while your muscles and weary limbs relax. Feel the tiredness and fatigue float away.

Weleda’s Arnica Bodycare is NATRUE certified authentically natural, and made with organic arnica extract. Weleda was originally founded in Switzerland in 1921, and there’s not much the company doesn’t know about this alpine plant over ninety years of use. It is packed with effective active botanicals: over 150 active compounds have been found in Arnica. Traditionally used for muscular pain and stiffness, backache, bruising, cramp and sprains, arnica has become a familiar friend to sports professionals and amateurs alike.

All three products are free from synthetic ingredients and artificial additives of any kind, and are suitable for vegans.

The award-winning Weleda Arnica Bodycare is available online.
