Arnica is popularly known for its medicinal properties, but this flower hides some secrets that you may not yet know.
This plant is often used to moisturise and soothe damaged skin, but it is very important to remember that it must always be used externally and never on open wounds.
The traditional preparation is made from arnica flowers which are left to macerate in 60º medical alcohol for about two weeks before being used in diluted form on bruises and contusions. Indeed, arnica is very effective in stimulating regeneration in cases of inflammation and especially in cases of minor bruising.
It is a widely used ingredient in the world of homeopathy, but it should not be forgotten that it can be a toxic plant if ingested in large quantities and can also cause allergic reactions, so it is wise to consult a doctor before use.
