Overview -  Arnica montana is the Latin name for a perennial that grows 1 to 2 feet tall with bright, yellow daisy-like flowers that appear in July and August. It is found on the moist, grassy upland meadows in the hills and mountains of northern and central Europe and Siberia. It is also found sparsely in the northwestern United States, but we grow our own plants right here on our farmstead!

Tinctures, Homeopathic dilutions, creams, oils, salves and gels can all be found. It is not recommended to use this plant internally without the help of a qualified practitioner. Topical applications have been used to effectively help carry off damaged material in the tissues from trauma or impact.
