Arnica montana

History and Medicinal Properties

Arnica is a genus in the Asteraceae (sunflower) family. Arnica has been used medicinally for centuries in both the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, and today arnica preparations represent one of the most well-known herbal medicine types. The primary use of medicinal arnica is as a topical anti-inflammatory. An extract or infusion is made from plant material and then applied to the skin, usually as an oil or gel. Arnica is renowned for its ability to reduce pain and swelling, and modern research (for example see here) continues to discover new chemical properties and pathways within the plant which contribute to these effects. It is important to note that some of the compounds that are so effective topically are quite toxic if taken internally. So remember to never ingest arnica oils or gels.

Arnica at Laine Herbals

We are cultivating Arnica montana, the most widely-used medicinal species, and Arnica chamissonis, which is native to North America and very similar to Arnica montana. The flowers bloom in June and continue throughout the summer, so I am able to harvest regularly.
