Rated 5 out of 5 by GingerPop Cool relief
I've just had a knee replacement and, as anyone whose has had this operation will tell you, there is a lot a swelling and discomfort. This arnica gel has been a lifesaver and this bottle has gone everywhere with me. The cooling gel brings immediate relief, especially at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spiderjo can't be without it!
I bought this in a set of 4 gels from SBC. I use it regularly on my lower back pain, usually before bedtime but in the daytime too sometimes. It hasn't cured my back and I didn't expect it to, but it makes it comfy enough to sleep. I love it so much it's the first thing I pack for our weekends at the caravan. I just can't be without it!
PS - We also bought the 1L Arnica muscle soak which my husband uses a lot more than me for HIS back! We find that pretty good too, though I prefer the skin gel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PureIndulgence Not as good!
More sticky and less beneficial. Why? The ingredients are the same but NOT IN THE SAME ORDER!
SBC Arnica Gel has Arnica Montana, the most important ingredient, listed in 8th place and yet when it was Simply Beautiful Cosmetics it was listed 4th. Glycerin, that smoothing but sticky stuff, is now listed as the 3rd top ingredient whereas before it used to be 8th.
A name change can hide a lot.
I still have an original litre size from Simply Beautiful Cosmetics so I am able to make the comparison.
I won't buy any more.
It's the same with the collegan gel which I will continue to use just to help thin down face creams that I don't like or have failed to return, in time, back to QVC to have ask you something that I have a great way of the day before I get a follow back on cream.
Waste not as they say!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doie fantastic product
My mom has given me some of this and it is absolutely fantastic. I was in hospital and had cannulas in my arms and they were very sore when they were taken out. I used this on them and the improvement is great. I shall soon be making a purchase. Just general all round fantastic product it's lovely on the skin and best of all it is not greasy and it smells nice to. I am tempted to try the shower gels and muscle rubs.

I received this as part of an SBC set from QVC. This water soluble gel is certainly easy to use. It is easily absorbed and does have a very light moisturising effect on the skin.
In homeopathic medicine ‘Arnica montana’ is applied topically to the skin.
However, arnica’s mechanism of action is still not that well known. Arnica preparations are said to have shown wound healing, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving properties. It is thought that arnica's actions may be due to two chemicals called ‘Helenalin’ and ‘Dihyrdohelenalin’.
However, it should also be noted that it’s repeatedly stated in herbal journals that arnica should not be applied to abraded skin because it is a significant skin irritant that can cause itching, blisters and ulcers. In general arnica is associated with a high incidence of skin sensitisation.
In terms of my own experience, I found the gel easy to use, but the gel had absolutely no therapeutic benefit on my aches and pains.

This is a nice gel. Very easy to apply, sinks in quickly, no stickiness and a lovely light fragrance. However I cannot say that it has done anythng for my aches and pains or bruises!
