Arnica montana

Arnica montana is also known as the “Mountain daisy.” This perennial herb comes from the composite family and it grows all across  the meadows, pastures, and lawns of Europe as well as in western Asia. They are also known for growing in poor soil.

They can grow to a maximum height of about 2-3 feet and in herbal medicine, they have traditionally been made into a tea for mountain climbers, commonly known as “Fall kraut.”
