    Arnica is the best remedy, whether taken homeopathically or herbally. The homeopathic remedy is a highly purified and energized form of the herb, and both are good.

    The homeopathic remedy looks like a little sugar pellet and comes in a tube in your natural food store, usually labeled 30c, which refers to the potency or strength. You can dissolve a couple of pellets under the tongue. The homeopathic form might be better for kids because they like taking remedies – they taste sweet.

    Traumeel is another wonderful external application that includes Arnica. Both are available in any natural food store, or online, for example at example from Get the 30c potency (strength) and dissolve a couple of pellets in your mouth two to four times a day (more frequently if your symptoms are recent and intense, less frequently as time goes on and your symptoms subside).
