Arnica, Arnica Montana, grows in mountainous areas and is often called the “mountain daisy” because of its bright orange or yellow daisy-like flower. Arnica contains natural anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and circulation-stimulating compounds.
Both the flowers and roots are used to prepare topical remedies for pain relief. Often used for bruises, sprains and muscle soreness, it may also help reduce pain and swelling for arthritis sufferers.
Arnica should not be taken internally without direct medical supervision and should not be used on broken skin.
