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
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
