Arnica Cream


This combination of arnica, comfrey and St Johns wort is a great healing cream to include in your natural first aid kit

The flowers from the Arnica plant have long been used in natural medicine to treat bruising, sprains, muscle strains, insect bites, inflammation and swelling. 

Originally known as knitbone, Comfrey has traditionally been used to heal burns, sprains, swelling, bruising and minor wounds and to treat inflammatory disorders such as arthritis and gout. 

The use of St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) as an herbal remedy to treat a variety of internal and external ailments dates back to the ancient Greeks. It remains popular as a treatment for anxiety, depression, cuts, insect bites and burns.

Containing only arnica, comfrey and St Johns Wort in a natural handmade sorbolene base, this cream is made in small batches by Pat Collins Herbal Health in rural NSW.


As a child growing up on a farm, Pat Collins developed a love of plants, particularly weeds and their healing properties. Having completed a Diploma of Herbal Medicine in 1989, she has been practicing herbalism in NSW's Hunter Valley for over two decades. She has written numerous easy-to-use books on weeds and using natural remedies at home and extensively runs workshops and courses.

Having studied with Pat, and continued to refer to her books and use her products, I can vouch for her no-nonsense, back-to-basics approach to healthcare. She truly is a wise woman.
