I haven't tried arnica in its herbal form but have used it often as a homeopathic. It's wonderful for that bruised feeling of overworked muscles. It's also great for preventing swelling from dental work. I take a dose one hour before having a tooth pulled or other work. Instead of spending 24 hours holding an ice pack to my jaw, I don't have any swelling at all. That's why plastic surgeons use arnica to prevent swelling in their patients.

Great stuff!

Arnica contains the toxin helenalin, which can be poisonous if large amounts of the plant are eaten, and contact with the plant can also cause skin irritation. If enough of the material is ingested, the toxin helenalin produces severe gastroenteritis, and internal bleeding of the digestive tract.
