EO question: Bruising

I had a pretty rough fall yesterday, made worse by the fact that I tried to catch myself on the counter.  It left a long, deep bruise on my inner arm that is getting more and more purple by the minute.  (Silly kiddo was having fun with a water bucket on the porch outside and I didn't see a puddle he left in the middle of the kitchen floor).

Are there any Essential Oils that anyone can recommend to try to help it heal faster? 

I'm going to put some Arnica gel on it tonight and then treat it with yarrow in the morning when I pick some, but I'd love to know what others use to treat their deep bruises...

Not an eo, but olive oil is said to help bruising.

Olive oil. Mix it with a little cypress oil and lavender oil too. If you choose only one eo, use cypress.
