Arnica

Additional Information:

Scientific Name: Arnica cordifolia
Common Name: Arnica
Family: Asteraceae
Locale: Routt National Forest
Specific Region: Colorado
Description: A collection of wildcrafted Arnica cordifolia inflorescences (flowerheads). As I was gathering these, my face started stinging, as with a bad sunburn. After a while I realized it happened after I would wipe the sweat off my face, so I reckon it is from the plants glandular secretions.
