Arnica comes from the perennial Arnica Montana which belongs to the Compositae family of daisy flowers. Other than arnica, there are several other flowers used homeopathically and herbally within this family of plants, such as Echinacea, Calendula, Yarrow, Chamomilla, Solidago and Dandelion. This yellow-orangish flower grows on the mountains of Europe and Siberia, and is often referred to as the 'mountain daisy'.
Publicised trials that took place in the U.S.A indicated that arnica cream encouraged healing after surgery and improved the pain in those with osteoarthritis. It was thought that the rich source of Manganese found in arnica was responsible for facilitating the healing process.
