Arnica has a history of folk medicine use in many locations, including North America, Germany, and Russia. The herb has been used in folk remedies since the sixteenth century. Arnica is associated with Midsummer, the harvest and harvest spirits. It is sacred to Freya, Ra and Apollo. It is aligned with the sun and the element of fire.
Folklore suggests to drive away thunderstorms burn arnica and say "Set arnica alight, set arnica alight, thunderstorm take flight." Arnica can also be used in general protective rituals as well as rituals for fertility of crops. Arnica can be planted around an area to keep a spirit from entering or leaving. It is believed that this will only work until the plant dies back in the fall.
