Arnica montana is a small herbaceous perennial indigenous to Central Europe. In folklore shepherds reported that sheep and goats living in the mountains, when injured in falls from the mountainside, would eat Arnica. Even in cases of severe injury animals would soon be back on their feet fully recovered. The shepherds themselves also tried the plant and found that when injured in falls the plant helped a speedy recovery.
