What is Arnica?
Arnica is a natural resource from the Arnica Montana flower which is grown mostly in North America – it also offers some excellent medicinal qualities!
The active chemicals present in Arnica can reduce swelling and offer antibiotic
traits, which is why Arnica has been used in alternative medicine for over 400 years! Typically Arnica is used in oils and creams as when taken by mouth in large amounts it can be poisonous (although it is still sometimes used in food, beverages and some controlled alternative medical treatments.)
Arnica is commonly used to help relieve post-surgery pain and swelling and also bruising or muscular soreness. Also known as nature’s anti-inflammatory, Arnica is an essential for those with regular muscle soreness or joint ache who are looking for natural treatments for pain.
What Are The Benefits of Arnica?
Arnica offers a heap of medical and homeopathy benefits and frequently appears in alternative medicines and massage.
One of the more common uses of the herb is for the treatment of osteoarthritis as it helps with joint pain and swelling. Those suffering from extreme joint issues will often use Arnica creams or muscle oils and massage the Arnica into the painful areas to see relief. Using creams or oils rather than oral treatments also offers direct treatment and massage of the painful area that can see additional benefits.
As well as relieving joint pain, Arnica is an excellent way to reduce post-op bruising and swelling. Results do vary based on dosages and products, but typically those regularly using Arnica in their treatment plan will see the impact of the treatment on bruising.
