Arnica montana the magical remedy in homeopathy world.

Arnica is a perennial plant that is generally found in mountainous areas of Canada, the northern US, and Europe. The horizontal, dark brown, branched rootstock sends up a slightly hairy, simple (or lightly branched) stem that reaches a height of 1-2 feet. The basal leaves are oblong-ovate and short-petioled; the upper leaves are smaller and sessile. Each plant has 1-9 large, yellow, daisy-like flowerheads whose rays are notched on the outer tips. The flowers appear from June to August.
Arnica has been used historically as a diaphoretic, diuretic, emollient, expectorant, stimulant, and vulnerary. Arnica is primarily for external usage. As a tincture or salve, Arnica helps to promote the healing of wounds, bruises, and general irritation. However, only very dilute solutions of tincture should be used, since the tincture can cause blistering and inflammation when applied. Arnica is also sometimes used as a poultice, and a tea made from the flowers for a compress on the stomach to support relief from abdominal pains. The dilute tincture can be helpful in inflammation of the mouth and throat, and some doctors have used it for internal bleeding and as a cardiac agent.

using arnica in crude form has a  lot of hazards.

Arnica montana is sometimes grown in herb gardens and has long been used medicinally.It contains the toxin helenalin, which can be poisonous if large amounts of the plant are eaten. It produces severe gastroenteritis and internal bleeding of the digestive tract if enough material is ingeste Contact with the plant can also cause skin irritation. The roots contain derivatives of thymol, which are used as fungicides and preservatives and may have some anti-inflammatory effect. When used topically in a gel at 50% concentration, Arnica montana was found to have the same effect when compared to a 5% ibuprofen gel for treating the symptoms of hand osteoarthritis.
