Arnica health benefits

Arnica montana, sometimes called mountain daisy for its bright yellow flowers, is a mountain plant whose flowers and roots are used to make topical pain-relief remedies for sprains, strains and bruises. Arnica is applied to the skin for pain and swelling associated with bruises, aches, sprains, and arthritis. It is also applied to the skin for insect bites, muscle and cartilage pain, chapped lips, and acne. Arnica is used as a topical herbal preparation as well as a homeopathic remedy. As a herbal remedy, arnica is a counter-irritant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-rheumatic, anti-neuralgic and anti-oedema medicine. Most commonly available as a cream or ointment, arnica is used for bruises, sprains and strains, muscle aches, leg and joint aches, rheumatic pain, inflammation from sports injuries, hematomas, contusions and fracture-related oedema. Considered by herbalists as one of the primary first aid remedies, arnica is never taken internally, unless it is a homoeopathic preparation. Homoeopathic preparations are used for similar conditions, as well as pre and post surgery to prevent swelling and other side-effects.
