A member of the Asteraceae family, which also includes daisies and sunflowers, arnica is a flower with hairy leaves and large yellowish blooms. Its essential oil is derived from the flowers themselves, and this concentration is very potent, only to be used in highly diluted form. Arnica is often found in gels and creams intended for athletes.

History of Arnica
Native to mountainous regions of Europe and North America, arnica has been used in folk wellness practices for centuries. With its topical uses outweighing its fragrant qualities, arnica oil should be used in drastically diluted concentrations to receive its considerable benefits.
