obviously this one is not growing in my Australian backyard garden! however I'm excited to be using arnica in my post surgical regimen to alleviate bruising and swelling. I was proud when my surgeon recommended my very own kind of medicine to me! I highly recommend keeping arnica ointment/cream in your home for treating bruises and muscle injuries topically.
Rosemary, I took this photograph as my plant was just past its peak, but at this point the herb is still excellent for a diy herbal bath or tea made fresh from the garden. You don't need to dry the herb, cut some stalks and steep in boiled water... this you can drink as tea, or pour into your bath for relief of tired aching muscles and to promote relaxation after a hard day.
