Its yellow flowers are collected at summer's end and dried for medicinal use. There are many medicinally viable species of arnica flowers found around the globe, some of which are found in North American mountain ranges and woodlands. The most commercially available species is Arnica montana, This species of arnica is native to Europe, with a natural range stretching from the southern Iberian Peninsula to Scandinavia. The plant has large flower heads with brilliant yellow coloration. Flowers begin to appear during mid-summer and continue blooming well into autumn. For best results, they should be harvested early in the blooming season. The dried flowers are fluffy and fibrous, and can be irritating to the nose if handled improperly.
