Arnica is a medicinal plant used in traditional medicine, in the form of tincture in general, by herbal medicine and by homeopathy; its beneficial properties have been exploited by folk medicine for millennia. This plant, very similar to a large, bright yellow daisy, lives in Europe and Asia, in the hilly and mountain uncultivated land, in a sunny place; the areas in which he lives are undergoing many changes, both due to the climate and due to anthropization, which is why arnica is a protected plant, because it is in danger of extinction.
Arnica: Property of the Arnica
This plant is used to produce dyes, oils or ointments useful in cases of joint pain, bruises, tears, bruises, beatings, strains; its effectiveness is very intense, and generally few applications solve the problem. It is also used in cases of very prolonged treatments, for chronic rheumatic or joint problems.
We use flowers, stems, leaves and even roots, with a bitter taste.
If it is ingested in significant doses, the arnica is toxic; above all, the use of dyes or ointments on excoriated skin or wounds can be toxic.
