While, regular arnica can be dangerous to ingest, homeopathic arnica is very safe. Homeopathic arnica for injuries is so safe because it is super diluted, generally beyond where any trace of arnica would be detectable.
You can buy it here. It’s only $7.50.
Why Homeopathic Arnica is a “Must Have”
Arnica can help with old wounds, but the most amazing demonstrations of arnica’s healing capabilities occur when people give arnica within about ten minutes of the injury. You will not see the tremendous effects if you have to “run out to the store” in an emergency. Because of this, I feel it’s important for parents to have it on hand at all times.
I’m not trying to “sell” you on arnica. It’s a very inexpensive product, and if I was simply trying to push inventory, I would have picked one with a much larger price tag for sure.
It’s just that important to me that our readers are aware of how wonderful this product is.
Homeopathic Arnica can prevent an injury from taking a turn for the worst.
I never take chances with head injures. I’m just not like that. I believe in going to the ER for all head injuries personally. That doesn’t mean arnica can’t be given for the bruise as well though.
One homeopath explained:
Arnica is also a great absorber of blood. For example, my patients have had amazing experiences with their kids who bump their heads and get a big egg on their forehead, which of course means there is a hematoma, a leakage of blood. With Arnica the swelling goes right down and then they don’t have to take their kids to the emergency room. –Dr. Luc De Schepper, M.D., Ph.D., D.I. Hom., C.Hom., Lic. Ac.
Like I said, I disagree that someone should pass up the ER visit, but I’m also not a professional homeopath. I’m just a mom. For the little bumps and bruises though, in accordance with the label, it’s an awesome tool.
NOTE: Make sure to store all homeopathic medicines out of the reach of children, because they are so delicate, if a child touches them, it can inactivate them. For the same reason, never touch a homeopathic remedy with your hand; just dump a pellet into the cap and use the cap to drop it into the child’s mouth. Similarly, do not store homeopathic remedies near anything that has a strong smell like tea tree oil or peppermint toothpaste. That may inactivate the entire bottle.
