Happy little heartleaf arnica. 💛
I went wandering through the woods again this morning, to gather a bit of heartleaf arnica (arnica cordifolia) for making salves.
Incidentally, arnica has saved me this week - I managed to pinch a nerve in my neck on Sunday and was in such great pain - the kind that makes you holler out. Had it not been for remembering that I stashed a jar of arnica salve in my bathroom drawer, I have no doubt that the pain would have lasted longer. Instead, I was able to get out & forage today.
Our salve is infused with arnica montana. Arnica cordifolia is different but offers the same great anti-inflammatory and pain relief qualities. The flowers & leaves that I gathered today will be infused into oil and made into a limited edition salve & massage oil. If you're interested, leave a comment or send me a message and I'll put you on the list.
