Meet our Arnica Ambassadors


This year Weleda has appointed several inspirational Arnica Ambassadors who rely on Weleda’s arnica range for training, competing and recovering.


The Weleda Arnica Ambassador programme aims to encourage exceptional effort and adventure in sport and fitness, whether that is trying something that is particularly challenging or unusual, showing remarkable determination and tenacity, or taking a unique and inspiring path to explore and appreciate our magnificent planet. Our Ambassadors motivate us all to be more daring, more confident, fitter, healthier, and to get outside and involved in nature.

Weleda’s Arnica range is designed to support our health and wellbeing with natural products to soothe and invigorate after exercise, to prepare and protect the body for endurance, or to help with recovery from sports injuries.

“With its much-valued anti-inflammatory properties, people are increasingly turning to Arnica montana to soothe minor aches and pains, refresh overworked limbs and lift that feeling of tiredness after a challenging workout. Packed with over 150 active botanicals, it’s easy to see why so many sports professionals – as well as occasional enthusiasts - rely on arnica to keep themselves in peak condition.”
