• “Wolfsbane, from the Plant Arnica montana, is also called Arnica, Arnica Flowers, Arnica Root, Common Arnica, Leopardsbane, Mountain Arnica, and Mountain Tobacco. Medicinal parts include the flowers and the root stock. Wolfsbane is a perennial plant that is generally found in mountainous areas of Canada, the northern US, and Europe. . . . The flowers appear from June to August. Wolfsbane has been used as a diaphoretic, diuretic, emollient, expectorant, stimulant, and vulnerary. Wolfsbane is primarily for external usage. As a tincture or salve, it helps to promote the healing of wounds, bruises, and general irritation. However, only very dilute solutions of tincture should be used . . . . Wolfsbane is also sometimes used as a poultice, and a tea made from the flowers for a compress on the stomach to relieve abdominal pains. The dilute tincture can be helpful in inflammation of the mouth and throat, and some doctors use it for internal bleeding and as a cardiac agent.”—Herbal Descriptions - Wolfsbane, http://www.viable-herbal.com/herbdesc5/1wolfsba.htm, accessed February 13, 2003.
