Arnica is commonly used for bruising, pain in muscles and joints.

The whole Arnica Flower is used in preparations such as oils and infusions or tinctures.  

TYPICAL PREPARATIONS Used as an infusion (approximately 1 teaspoon dried herb in 1/2 cup water), tincture (approximately 1 part herb to 10 parts alcohol), oil (1 part dried herb in 5 parts plant oil), or mouth rinse (1 part tincture in 10 parts water), or ointment (1 part arnica oil to 4 or 5 parts base).

Avoid arnica if you are taking blood-thinning medication. The combination could increase your risk of bleeding and bruising.

Arnica may interact negatively with these medications:

Jantoven (warfarin)
Plavix (clopidogrel)
NSAIDs, like ibuprofen and Naprosyn (naproxen)
Supplements that can slow blood clotting should also be avoided, such as garlic, ginger, ginkgo, and Panax ginseng.
