Arnica Montana has long been heralded for its ability to produce relief from pain, inflammation and bruising. The aromatic fragrant yellow flowering plant first began to be used medicinally in the 16th century.
Arnica‘s medicinal properties are found within the flower, and these are processed for over-the-counter use for their anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects1. Hamamelis virginiana is another yellowish flower, also known as witch-hazel. The plant leaves, branches, and bark have been used for manygenerations. To date it is used to treat treat topical skin afflictions such as burns, sores, insect bites, ulcers and hemorrhoids 2,3. Therefore, Hamamelis has been recognized by its astringent, anti-inflammatory and hemostatic properties3.
Homeopathic practices, which seek to treat ailments using small – though effective – doses, serve as a good delivery method for the array of uses provided by Arnica Montana.
