What is the difference between HOMEOPATHIC and HERBAL prepared arnica products you ask…
Homeopathic preparations of arnica are widely used, but they remain a source of controversy. The preparation of homeopathic remedies involves diluting the active ingredients of a substance to a very low concentration. This makes many scientists skeptical of the effectiveness of most homeopathic remedies. However, doctors at the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine in Switzerland concluded that the active ingredients in homeopathic arnica, though extremely dilute, are still potent enough to exert an anti-inflammatory effect.
Herbal preparations of fresh or dried arnica flowers contain larger concentrations of the herb’s active ingredients. They are available in the form of creams, ointments, gels, liniment or salves that can be applied to the skin over the site of injury. The alcohol extracts of arnica called tinctures can be added to water to make a herbal wash that can used to soak bandages or applied directly.
