Arnica Flowers (Arnica montana)
Beloved by many and revered by all, arnica is the good Samaritan who pauses to gift her medicine to those who are bumped and bruised by life’s travels. Her high-elevation yellow blooms hug the weary hiker and hold the hand of those dancers who are sitting one out. A breath of clear air when the world grows stale, Arnica offers a glimpse of a higher plane and a staff of stability for those dizzied by the pace of the (rat) race.
As for the dirt on why, how, and when to use this herb, it’s up to you to hit the books / browsers and do a little sleuthing of your own. We’ll be here for you if you need a hand – er, an herb – to hold.
