Health Benefits of Arnica
Pain management isn’t easy. For many people dealing with pain, the side effects of prescription painkillers can make this option less appealing. There’s also the very real fear of getting “hooked” on the drugs. One potential alternative is homeopathic medicine, which, while low on scientific evidence, has been in use for centuries. Arnica is one such example, and has been popular for centuries. Arnica comes from the perennial Arnica montana, a yellow-orangish flower that grows in the mountains of Europe and Siberia. It’s sometimes called the “mountain daisy,” because its color and petals look like the daisy. Creams and ointments made from the flower head can be used to treat muscle soreness and aches, bruising, joint pain and swelling, and inflammation.

Bruising and Surgery

One of the common uses of arnica is to treat bruises, so it’s popular among people who have recently undergone surgery, especially plastic surgery. Although scientific research is inconclusive on the matter, topical creams and oils are said to help with pain and bruising of the skin. One study on people who underwent a rhytidectomy — a plastic surgery to reduce wrinkles — showed that homeopathic arnica can significantly boost healing. References: healthline.com

These unique Word Art signs are original designs of Renee Rapanotti, owner of AnnabelleRoseDesigns™. Renee is a native Michigander currently living and creating Word Art at her home in Lake Orion. Renee LOVES typography and design. Creating beautiful images and meaningful memories for others to enjoy is her passion. It all started with a wedding celebration piece she created for her nephew and his new bride. They seemed overwhelmed and very surprised at what she had made for them! Their excitement and gratitude was Renee’s jump start and got her wheels spinning. More creations were born and people actually wanted to buy them!! The name Renee gave her business ~AnnabelleRoseDesignsTM ~ honors her grandmothers with a combination of their names. Ideas for new designs never stop coming and so Renee puts her energy into perfecting those abstract ideas and making them reality. The technique she developed for her Word Art creations is very unique and something you won’t find elsewhere. Although designs can be duplicated, each is produced individually one at a time and no two are exactly alike. The “distressing” that occurs during the process is uncontrollable, which adds to the charm, authenticity and style of each Word Art sign. Handcrafted on a wood panel with 3/4″ profile, each Word Art Sign comes ready to hang or set on a shelf. Inspired by subway sign typography, these one-of-a-kind word art creations celebrates the beautiful state of MICHIGAN ~ the Great Lakes State ~ with names of well known Michigan cities places, attractions & products we have all come to know and love! Also available are Word Art signs with religious themes, famous quotes, colleges, love theme and humor in a variety of sizes and color.

Besides being a nurse, Bev enjoys making handcrafted bath and body products because it’s all her loves in one place – the math, the science, the artistic expression, the designing of each scent and color sensation. It’s art that must be seen, felt and used to experience. For Bev, making soap is amazingly fun and awesome. While researching the additives put into our skincare products, Bev realized how bad they can be for your skin. So she began making handcrafted lotions, lip balms and sugar scrubs. The more she used her handcrafted products, the better her skin got. Bev quit having to slather herself in lotion constantly because her skin was cracking and dry. She quit having redness, rashes and hives. Her skin texture changed, and felt smoother and looked younger. It was amazing. Bev tries to keep her bath and body products as natural as they can be. Preservatives are used because germs are real and pretty harmful. Mica colorants or liquid dyes (fd&c approved for cosmetic) are used unless she uses natural herbs or spices for colorants. You will find essential oils in a lot of Bev’s Bath and Body Products. Love your skin and begin using Bev’s Body Bar Bath & Body Products!
