This has come up a lot lately, I have suggested it to clients for years, used it myself, so I thought I'd shed some light on what is Arnica, how it can be used. Arnica is a plant, perennial with bright yellow orange flowers, grows in North America. It is recommended for muscle, joint aches, bruises, and cuts because it is an an anti-inflammatory. You can find it in many forms, gels, creams, salve, tinctures. I would just want to make sure it's a 100% natural, as some is pretty mainstream, the gels I would seriously question. Here in Worcester you can find it at The Living Earth http://www.lefoods.com, our local health food store. Hope this was helpful, pay it forward, the knowledge. Peace.
