The many uses of ARNICA
Arnica montana is a shrub which grows in the wild, in temperate climates.
It's a lovely-looking plant, with bright yellow flowers.
It's predominant medical use is for reducing pain, especially soft-tissue and tendon pain.
So it is of great benefit to atheletes, who use its pills and ointment to cure various hurts and blunt wounds, a byproduct of their profession.
It is also useful, taken internally, to cure headaches caused by over-tense neck muscles and Fascia of the Scalp. Arnica Hair Oil is very famous for helping to get a good night's sleep, which is due its relaxant effect on these muscles and the Scalp.
Commercially, arnica is combined with a few other locally-acting analgesics, in ointments.
Arnica is one very useful plant for us, indeed.
