The herbs that support muscle aches, pains and injuries include:
Arnica (Arnica montana)
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis)
Cottonwood buds (Populus balsamifera)
Cottonwood buds contain salicilin and are pain-relieving. Used topically, arnica reduces bruises or sprains to bring relief and quicken healing. Valerian roots relax the muscles, both taken internally and applied externally, useful for muscle tension and pain.
Wild strawberry cools summer heat, and the leaves support an upset stomach with diarrhea due to the tannins.
