The golden-yellow, daisy-like flowers of arnica (Arnica montana) are already described in medieval herbal books as a wound remedy for injuries of all kinds. Goethe drank arnica tea for his heart disease, and Pastor Kneipp especially appreciated her in the treatment of wounds.
The remedy is unsurpassed as a first aid in accidents of all kinds. This is also expressed by the names given by the folk medicine of this medicinal plant: Bergwohlverleih, Wohlverleih, Stichwort, Mutterwurz, Fallkraut, Kraftrose.The plant Arnica Montana grows, as the name suggests, in mountainous regions such as in the Alps and Vosges. It is a plant of the genus Arnica and the family of daisy family, which is under protection. The drug manufacturers grow them on fields.
The homeopathic remedy Arnica is made from the carefully dried and powdered rootstock of the flowering plant.
As a homeopathic remedy, arnica is first and foremost an acute remedy for all blunt injuries as well as for bleeding wounds, because the remedy relieves the pain of injury and can quench internal as well as external bleeding, for example after surgery.
Later, however, it may be necessary to use another remedy to completely heal the injury.
Attention: Never take the product preventively, for example before a dental procedure. You could make the subsequent symptoms even worse. Do not use arnica in potencies below the D6 or C6, as lower potencies would promote bleeding instead of stopping.
