Arnica is especially recommended for pain derived from trauma (injuries) or inflammation (such as arthritis). It is a toxic herb, but can be ingested in highly diluted form in homeopathic remedies, where it is used to ease pain and inflammation. Typically it is used topically and is considered one of the best herbs for helping to heal bruises fast. Arnica does this by helping to mobilize white blood cells to cleanup and repair wounds faster.
