Arnica is one of the most commonly used and studied homeopathic remedies. This remedy is derived from the herb Wolf’s Bane or Leopard’s Bane. In its natural form it is extremely toxic if ingested, but when diluted as a homeopathic remedy is proven effective for helping to relieve pain and swelling due to injury. Arnica is indicated to relieve muscle and soft tissue pain, stiffness due to minor injuries, bruising, swelling, and inflammation due to injury. This homeopathic remedy is the perfect addition to your natural first aid kit!
Reach for the Arnica next time your kid falls and bumps their head, you smash your finger in a door, sprain your ankle, or after you’ve been working on that honey-do list all weekend and it feels like every muscle in your body hurts. You can even use Arnica post surgery and childbirth. It is not contraindicated to OTC medications or other holistic remedies and can be used in conjunction with them. Arnica is safe for anyone 2+. Other homeopathic remedies come in liquid form for infants! Always seek proper medical care for any serious injuries.
Arnica comes in a few different dilutions and is also available as topical gels and creams . It is best to match your symptoms to the indication for each dilution for best results. In homeopathy “more” or “higher” dilution doesn’t necessarily mean better or more effective. Matching symptoms to indications will get you the best results.
