Is arnica safe for kids?

Arnica montana is a healing plant that’s been used for centuries in homeopathic medicine for kids and adults. While the medicinal plant comes in many forms, only topical arnica is the best and safest form for children over the age of two. Talk to your pediatrician before using arnica for infants who are two years old or younger.

Other forms of arnica may include supplements or tinctures that are not recommended for children due to the lack of research surrounding their safety. Always choose topical arnica cream for children’s pain relief.

What is topical arnica used for?

Kids love to play whether it’s in the backyard, at recess with their friends, or on the soccer field. This love for being active often leads to minor injuries like scrapes, bruises, and sprains. Growing pains can also cause aching joints and muscle pain in kids and teens.

What makes arnica cream a great option when you need a child's pain reliever is its safe, gentle, and effective formula. Doctor Hoy’s Arnica Boost Recovery Cream can be reapplied as needed for fast, long-lasting relief from the following:

  • Minor scrapes
  • Skin irritation
  • Bug bites
  • Sunburns
  • Bruises
  • Muscles sprains & soreness
  • Impact injuries
  • Joint discomfort

Using Arnica vs Traditional Kid’s Pain Relief

Natural arnica cream is not a replacement for all children’s pain relievers, but it can have fewer negative side effects than taking NSAIDs and provide faster relief depending on its use. Many FDA-regulated products use arnica, like our Doctor Hoy’s Pain Relief Gel that provides hot and cold pain relief.

In clinical studies, researchers found that arnica cream can be just as effective at reducing pain as topical NSAIDs. A 2021 review of studies on herbal therapies reported that arnica gel for joint and muscle pain works just as well as topical NSAIDs for relieving pain and inflammation.

Benefits of Using Arnica Cream

You may already use some natural pain relief methods for kids such as ice packs, heating pads, and Kinesio tape. These help you avoid using medications like ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or aspirin that may have negative side effects.

Alternatively, the benefits of arnica are the reason many holistic and homeopathic doctors including chiropractors recommend using this powerful, natural topical. Doctor Hoy’s Arnica Boost Recovery Cream is:

  • Non-toxic with no carcinogens
  • Paraben-free, meaning there are no harsh preservatives
