The Healing Power of Arnica



By Sam Adkins, Homeopath.

Arnica is perhaps the most well known homeopathic medicine. Even those who do not understand what homeopathy is, have often heard of Arnica and the reason is simple….Arnica can produce oustanding healing with everyday injuries. The plant from which Arnica is made is comonly called Leopard’s Bane and is found on hillsides. It has been used effectively for centuries in its herbal form and like many herbs it has its share of natural toxins. Due to the methods used to prepare homeopathic Arnica (which means all toxins are removed) it’s healing properties can be used safely and to wonderful effect.

So what can you use Arnica for?

It is the NO 1 medicine for treating injury. This is because its sphere of action is on the blood vessels assisting healing and causing re-absorption of blood so preventing bruising and reducing inflammation. It also works by regulating the heart after injury and amazingly it works to stop internal and external haemorrage. The beneficial effects of taking Arnica are so transparent in use that if this is the only homeopathic medicine you use regularly, you will observe its healing properties again and again.

Here are some common uses:


Arnica is excellent for shock and trauma after injury. From the distress of a small child who has fallen over in the playground, to the serious shock of a person involved in a car accident. When someone is suffering from shock they may say that they are ok and then collapse later. Shock causes reduced blood flow to the brain and thus confusion. So if someone involved in an accident say they are fine then administer Arnica as this is a key symptom for the medicine!


If you have a bruise, or a fall that will produce a bruise think Arnica! A bruise is caused by damage to the soft tissues that support the skin. Left to itself the area will go blue, purple and yellow whilst healing. GiveArnica after a bump andits affinity for soft tissue can prevent any swelling or rainbow colours appearing at all.


Arnica is also good for head injuries and concussion. If you do suspect concussion make sure you also obtain appropriate medical monitoring.


Arnica is also ideal for surgery as it reduces swelling, brusing and pain. I use it 1 day before, the day of surgery, and 3-5 days after after surgery to get the most effective result.


I also recommend Arnica straight after childbirth as it can start helping those swollen tissues to heal. Also because there is often an element of shock in the process for mother and baby.


Old injuries can also respond well to Arnica…even those from years ago if the medicine is prescribed in the appropriate potency.


Muscle fatigue (such as from digging your garden or over exercise) will be alleviated by Arnica and in this case as with surgery, you can take some Arnica beforehand as well as after.


Use Arnica in the 30 potency every 4 hours to alleviate overworked bodies after flying longhaul.

General Guidelines: Use Homeopathic Arnica in 6th, 30th and 200th potency. As a general rule give low potency (6 or 30) for minor bumps and injuries and 200th or M potency for serious accidents and injuries. Arnica is also available in sprays, gels and creams but do not apply it to broken skin as it can irritate. If you give Arnica then repeat it as needed but in the case of minor injuries, it is rare to need to re-dose for many days as it is so effective.

To summarise, Arnica is the first homeopathic medicine to think of in the case of minor and major injuries, childbirth, surgery, muscle fatigue and jetlag. If you have not used it already then I would recommend that you go out and buy some Arnica 30 and put it in your bag. The first time you administer its healing properties you will be amazed!

I would just like to say how much I love Bonjour Baby! They are really fantastic! I recently emailed some about baby care to some other mums in my parenting group and now my whole parenting group are all devoted Bonjour Baby fans! I’m just so glad your website is available, thank you again and keep up the great work! — Amalia, Wakerley QLD
Last fall, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bonjour Baby via a giveaway over at the ecoxpo. They had a great display and hosted a giveaway and I won an organic cotton mini bunny. It was perfect timing too, as my little girl was just born. He loves his new cuddly friend. I haven't gone back to use any other resource platform again. Your articles are very high quality and I love your selection of products too. The Bonjour Baby products are truly amazing! I always look forward to your new articles and products. — Millie, Sydney
Every time my little girl has her bath, after using your products (we have the entire range) our whole family would comment on how our little ones smells! We all love your products, cannot give enough praise for them. The quality of your articles are also a great resource for the new parents wanting to raise a sustainable baby like us! Much love — Sangeeta, Neutral Bay
I just wanted to let you know that our kanoe has basically saved my life and my marriage. It has changed our lives completely. My daughter now takes at least 3 naps a day! Before I had this Kanoe I was never able to get her to sleep except for when she would fall asleep on me nursing (...) I just wish I had known about it earlier. Thank you for making our life a little easier :) — Megan Williams
My three-year-old had a seemingly ‘endless’ runny nose with watery eyes, sneezing and chest congestion. Thanks to your article on homeopathy for babies we were able to naturally treat her condition. She is now perfectly fine and we use those natural remedies on ourselves too when the seasons changes. Thank you very much for your quality articles. — Alexandre
Thank you Bonjour Baby, you have done a fantastic job. We discovered you from a friend and you have inspired us to live a bit greener once our little one arrived a few months ago. My sister and I are continuously looking for your new articles, as we want what is best for our bubs. So thank you again for all these quality articles. — Magda and Jenny, Alstonville
