Arnica needs to be approached with respect and caution - do not attempt to use it without the guidance of a pharmacist or healthcare professional.
Native to the Alpine valleys throughout Europe, Arnica montana is a plant as famous as it is notorious, with a history dating as far back as the 16th century. It has been used as a folk remedy for skin issues in Germany since that time, and even the poet Goethe was known to have taken Arnica regularly for a heart condition. (How he survived is cause for debate - Arnica can be poisonous if taken internally!) Like its sibling the sunflower, Arnica blooms in a bold yellow and is a member of the Asteraceae family.
For many centuries, people from all over the globe have found fresh herbs to be a gentle yet effective health-enhancing blessing. These are our own hand packed loose herbs, packaged in old world apothecary style, air tight brown paper canisters to keep light and moisture out, and freshness in. Use in teas, tinctures, and elixirs.
