Arnica Cream is a topical ointment made of an extract of the Arnica montana root, which is traditionally used in herbal medicine to help relieve discomfort in muscles and joints. The Commission E reported that, when applied topically, Arnica preparations have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antiseptic activity (Blumenthal, 2000).
The thymol derivatives in Arnica cream or gel preparations used topically also act as vasodilators, assisting normal healing processes by facilitating transport of blood and fluid accumulations away from the trauma site and it is commonly applied topically to sprains, bruises, and strains.
