Re: Arnica Cream or gel

I buy mine in a Reformhaus. If you google Müller Reformhaus, there may be one nearby. Or with some luck any of the bigger Coop or Migros?

Re: Arnica Cream or gel

I would also try a pharmacy (Apotheke) or Drogerie . It´s such a famous botanical that I´m sure you won´t have trouble finding it. Some pharmacies even specialize in botanical extracts, tinctures etc. but even very straight looking pharmacies , surprisingly have esoteric botanicals. Only thing, the prices might shock you Good luck.

Re: Arnica Cream or gel

Just ask at your local Drogerie or Apotheke (pharmacy), they should all have it. You can either have the "Arnika Salbe" e.g. this one with 30% Arnica in it, or combined with Kamille (chamomile) and Dexpanthenol = this one's called "Essigsaure Tonerde" - the brand name of the most famous one used to be "Euceta", but Euceta doesn't exist anymore and now there are others like this one. Bought one today because my daughter's got a bee sting...
