Arnica flowers are yellow flowers that are native to Europe but are also found in North America. The flowers have been used for centuries in traditional medicine, mainly applied externally, to treat a variety of conditions.
Arnica flowers have anti-inflammatory properties, and when applied in a topical preparation, they may help relieve pain and swelling associated with bruises, sprains, and muscle aches. Similarly, they may help reduce redness and inflammation associated with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne, as well as help speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, and scrapes.
Arnica flowers are used in hair care products to help strengthen hair and reduce dandruff.
While Arnica flowers are generally considered safe when used topically, it is important to use caution when using them internally or in large amounts. Pregnant women and individuals with certain medical conditions should also avoid using Arnica flowers. Please consult with a healthcare professional before using Arnica flowers for medicinal purposes.
