Origins of Arnica Montana
Arnica Montana originates in high-elevation mountain areas in Europe. With a beautiful star shape and easily recognized by its large, gold-yellow flower head, arnica may also be referred to as 'wolf’s bane,' 'leopard’s bane,' or 'mountain arnica'.
Arnica Montana is in the sunflower family and can grow to be one to two feet tall. Their flowering season is between May and August, and they are most commonly spotted in alpine meadows. Arnica montana is considered extinct in Hungary and Lithuania and absent from the British Isles, Italian peninsula, and Balkan peninsula.
The founder of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann, researched arnica montana as a homeopathic ingredient in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. His findings showed arnica as a viable homeopathic medicine thanks to its ability to help the healing process of bruises and provide pain relief for minor injuries and swelling.
Today, Arnica Montana is available in many forms, including cream, gel, and oral tablets and liquids. Homeopathic arnica is produced through dilution, allowing it to be consumed orally with the correct potency. Now, it is used as a safe and natural homeopathic medicine for children (at least 6 years old) and adults alike.
