bruises and sprains Treatment with herbs

Time is of the essence when treating bruises, getting an ice pack on the injury quickly can limit the bleeding, and the extent of the bruise. Even one as simple as a frozen bag of peas from the freezer can help reduce pain, swelling and bruising if applied soon after an injury.

  • If you bruise easily, consider adding bilberry tea to your daily regime. These purple berries taste great in herbal teas, and over time can improve circulation and vein health.
  • Arnica is often used to treat bruising and sprains in homeopathy, and should only be taken internally in the extremely diluted form common to homeopathic remedies. Arnica oil, salves and ointments are used in topical herbal preparations for sore muscles and sprains.
  • Eucalyptus oil reduces pain in sore muscles, sprains, and sports injuries. Blend eucalyptus in a 2 percent solution with a base massage oil like almond. Eucalyptus is often combines with rosemary oil to increase the flow of blood to muscle tissue, which eases muscle soreness. Because of its antiseptic properties, eucalyptus can be used as a topical antiseptic for minor cuts and scrapes.
  • The essential oil of choice for sprained ankles and sports injuries is everlasting (Helichrysum angustifolium). If applied immediately after the injury, this oil dramatically lessens swelling and bruising
