The soothing qualities of Arnica have been well-documented historically both in Europe and in North America. European herbalists concocted healing remedies with their arnica, since the 1500s, while American Indians made healing ointments and tinctures with our native species.

A 1981 German study found two substances in this herb, helenalin, and dihydrohelenalin, which produce anti-inflammatory effects.
