Focus: Arnica

[Reading time: 2 minutes]

Arnica is a medicinal plant with yellow flowers that grows spontaneously in mountain.

Its flowers, with analgesics and anti-inflammatory powers, can be used as a remedy for trauma and minor bruises that may cause annoying pains to our horse, stopping his activities.

It’s really easy to prepare the infusion: infuse 20 grams of arnica (you can buy in drugstore) in a liter of alcool, then leave it for a month.

After this period filter the liquid and pour it in a dark glass bottle: now you can use it moistening a cloth with the infuse and massaging the painful area, repeating this operation till the healing.

Be careful: don’t let the horse drink the infuse and don’t use it on bleeding wounds and genital organs!
