Arnica - Certified OG

Certified Organic by MOFGA and grown regeneratively by one of the Meeting House Farm Collaborative Farms.
Plants are dried immediately after harvest in an on-farm organic certified drying facility to maximize potency and preserve quality.

From our Experience:
Dry arnica flowers and infuse in oil to make a healing topical salve. Arnica tends to "puff" as it dries. Do not despair - the medicinal qualities are still there. An arnica extract can be used as a topical spray.
