In the Garden

Growing Suggestions: Grows best in zones 4-9.  Full to part sun.  Prefers an even mixture of loam, peat and sand.  Rhizome spreading perennial.  Slow to establish. Grows 12 - 18 inches tall.

Harvesting Suggestions: Harvest flowers in June & July. Arnica blooms only once per season but can provide several harvests within a 3-week period.  Harvest only the open blossoms.  Dry on screens.  The blossoms will puff but the medicinal qualities are retained.  Arial parts and roots also contain the same medicinal qualities as the blossom.

In the Apothecary

Medicinal Uses: Use the flowers & roots for topical use only.  We love creating an extract of flower or root in alcohol; or an extract of dried flower or root in oil. Supports skin & lymphatic system.

Energetics: Warming & Drying   

Tastes: Bitter             

Herbal Actions:  Anti-inflammatory, mild lymphatic, anti-microbial, vulnerary.  Reduces bruising, relieves inflammation, reduces pain and increases circulation.  Used homeopathically internally.

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