Arnica is exposed to the rough, intensive forces of nature in the low and high mountains: warmth and light, cold and wind. Seen from the outside, its flower appears to be tousled, “deformed” by these forces; nevertheless, it succeeds in raising itself upright and in connecting its vigorous root with a radiant yellow flower (with a touch of redness). The stem area has fine silvery hairs and sparse foliage. The whole plant is permeated by a pungent aromatic oil that is particularly concentrated in the root area. Arnica relieves pain and regulates bleeding caused by blunt trauma and helps restore damaged tissue.
