Herbalists worldwide have found arnica effective in treating wounds, arthritis, swelling, hemorrhoids, bruises, toothache, bursitis, sore muscles, bronchitis, and stomachache.
Arnica stimulates white blood cell activity which consequently leads to the dispersion of congested blood and trapped fluids from the muscles and joints as well as bruised tissue.
From Essential Herbal Wisdom: A Complete Exploration of 50 Remarkable Herbs By Nancy Arrowsmith, page 74:
"It's (Arnica) healing qualities as first aid are truly phenomenal: arnica applied immediately to a wound will increase the circulation to the affected area and greatly lessen the possibility of swelling, further bruising, bleeding, or infection...arnica is further employed in the external, and gradual, treatment of rheumatic complaints, arthritis, sprains, and dislocations. It can aid in the healing of broken bones, abscesses, operation wounds, and infected veins or fingernails"
"There is a great deal of misunderstanding concerning the internal use of Arnica. American arnica (arnica chamissonis or arnica cordifolia) should not be taken internally, but is used in much the same fashion as European arnica (arnica Montana) in tincture or salve form. Mexican arnica, heterotheca inuloides, can, on the other hand, be used internally with caution for menstrual and intestinal cramps" (pg75)
Some people may react to arnica. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Do not use on open bleeding wounds. Do not use for extended periods. Consult your physician before beginning internal treatment.
