Arnica? Does it work???

As you'll know from Little Miss' posts, she's been taking a tumble or eight lately. Walking is dangerous stuff! I've heard from a few Mummies that ARNICA is the key to keeping the bruising to a minimum. It's a homeopathic remedy and I'd love to know if you've used it with your Little Miss/Mister and if it works! Also, how in God's green earth do you keep a cool cloth/ice pack on a bruised, bumped body part?? My Little Miss won't stand for it! I can't tell if it's her stubborn streak coming out or if I need to approach the situation in a different way. I'd love any suggestions or commiserations! I've purchased the arnica and applied it to Little Miss' latest egg on her forehead and will wait with bated breath to see the results. I'll keep you posted on my success if you share yours! Cheers!


  1. It does seem to help! I put arnica on Little Miss' knot on her forhead and it still bruised but no where near as bad as it usually does and the bruise seems to have been "advanced"...sort of pushed forward into the healing stage. Nice! :) Go for it!

  2. I've used Arnica for years on myself, as I'm rather accident prone and it is fantastic stuff. Thankfully my Little Miss hasn't got to the bumps and bruises stage yet but I will be waiting, tube of arnica in hand for WHEN she does!

  3. We've managed to go an entire week without using arnica, frozen peas or any other form of first aid. A banner week! :)
