I had to look up Arnica, never came across it before.
“Arnica montana) A daisy-like mountain flower
Used for: Bruises, sprains, soreness and swelling/muscle spasms from sports activity; arthritis set off by seasonal change; general muscle and joint pain.
Available In: Tincture, homeopathic ointment, cream, salve and pills
Herb Drug: Some people are sensitive to the compound helenalin found in arnica. If you develop a mild rash, then you are probably helenalin-sensitive and should stop using arnica.
Interaction: Arnica is toxic if it gets inside the body. Never apply arnica in any form on broken skin or on an open wound. Never take arnica internally unless it’s in the form of homeopathic pills that contain too little arnica to cause harm.” http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/REM00027/Arnica-Dr-Weil-Herbal-Remedies.html
