Arnica, scientifically known as Arnica montana, is a flowering plant that has been used in traditional medicine for its potential therapeutic properties. Arnica is primarily known for its topical use in relieving pain, inflammation, and bruising. It contains compounds called sesquiterpene lactones, which are believed to have anti-inflammatory effects. As a result, arnica has been used topically as a natural remedy for sprains, strains, arthritis, and muscle soreness. It is often available as a cream, gel, or ointment for external use. However, it is important to note that arnica should not be applied to broken skin or open wounds. Additionally, oral consumption of arnica is not recommended as it can be toxic. It is advisable to consult a healthcare professional before using arnica and follow the recommended usage guidelines.
