Arnica or wolf's bane is a perfect at-home remedy for injuries because it decreases inflammation, alleviates pain, and is believed to promote circulation. It is available as a gel or tincture which can be applied directly to the bruise a few times each day. Though both gels and tinctures are likely to be diluted, avoid putting them on any broken skin as this could irritate the injury.
