Arnica Montana

Posted on 24 March, 2017 at 21:55


Arnica is a perennial herb from the Asteracea botanical family (part of the same family as the sunflower) with orange-yellow daisy-like flowers heads. It is commonly found in the northern hemisphere in the mountains areas of Europe, North America and Siberia and the dried flower heads have long been used as an astringent and to treat skin disorders. The genus name Arnica is said to be derived from the Greek word arnica, which means lamb, in reference to arnica’s soft, hairy leaves.

Arnica typically grows to a height of one to two feet with vibrant flowers similar to daisies and bright green leaves. Stems are round and hairy, ending in one to three flower stalks, with flowers two to three inches across. The upper leaves are toothed and slightly hairy, while lower leaves have rounded tips. Arnica oil contains helenalin, a potent anti-inflammatory, making it a must-have for any natural first aid kit.

Arnica has long been used in folk medicine for its ability to reduce bruising and as an anti-inflammatory. Arnica (Arnica montana) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 1500s and is still popular today. Applied to the skin as an ointment, oil, cream, salve or liniment, has been used to soothe muscle aches, bruising, reduce inflammation, and heal wounds. It is frequently used by athletes for its immense healing properties. It is commonly used for injuries, such as sprains and bruises. As an herb, arnica is usually used topically on the skin.

Its ability to reduce pain and disease-causing inflammation when applied to the skin comes in handy for all kinds of bruises, aches, sprains and even arthritis flare-ups. It can even be applied to insect bites to reduce irritation and inflammation. Arnica oil can also be used to relieve areas of stiffness resulting from flying or long-distance driving. With Anti-inflammatory and soothing effects, Arnica is especially good for under eye circles, chapped lips or irritated nostrils.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and appearance. I must say that you've done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!
