Is arnica gel safe during pregnancy?

I twisted my ankle yesterday, and I thought I might try some arnica gel on it to see if it helps. I found nothing but conflicting advice on its safety online (of course).

Homeopathic mamas, what do you think? If it makes a difference, I'm 17 weeks along...

TIA!

I'm not sure about the gel, but the tablets are fine.

I fell and bruised my hip when I was about 15 weeks along. My midwife said that the gel and the tablets were both safe, as long as I followed the instructions on the packaging and didn't take it more often than was recommended by the manufacturer.

Thank you, ladies! It's starting to feel better on its own, but I'm so clumsy, it's good to know for the future!
