Arnica montana

Arnica montana is endemic to Europe, from southern Iberia to Southern Scandinavia and the Carpathians. It is absent from the British Isles and the Italian and Balkan Peninsulas. Our Arnica is mainly collected from the Carpathian Mountain Range in Romania.

Arnica montana grows in nutrient-poor silcaceous meadows up to nearly 3000 m. It is rare overall, but may be locally abundant. It is becoming rarer, particularly in the north of its distribution, largely due to increasingly intensive agriculture. In more upland regions, it may also be found on nutrient-poor moors and heaths.

Arnica montana was introduced into European folk medicine by shephards that noticed when sheep fell and bruised themselvs they nibbled on the leaves of the Arnica plant.

Characteristics

Arnica has long been used in skin care preparation for its properties. It has very little scent.

The Arnica in our extract is 20% active and therefore not suitable for direct application to the skin as it is to strong. It should be further be blended with Creams and Oils to form a custom blend.

In homoeopathy Arnica is associated with wound healing and bumps and bruises. Arnica oil is energising, powerful, a curative, resistant and protecting to the skin.

Arnica is a Tonica, antioedema, revulsive, antiseptic(2). Stimulates hair growth. It has antiphlogistic effects and in some cases antiseptic and analgesic(1). Anti-inflammatory, wound-healing(3). The sesquiterpene lactones helenalin acetate and 11,13-dihydrohelenalin have antibacterial and antifungal activities in vitro. Acidic polysaccharide fractions from Arnica extract have strong immunostimulating activities in vitro. Helenalin also had immunostimulating activing in a prelimanary screening.(1)
