Medicinal plants beds

The medicinal plant beds contain some of the most common medicinal and edible Alpine plants. These include Mountain Arnica, whose flowers have anti-inflammatory properties and contain a poisonous and highly volatile aromatic oil (for external use only) which is extracted. Lastly, we have the aromatic and digestive species: Achilleas, Gentians and lemon balm, among others. Peucedanum is well-known to the locals for its effective analgesic properties(also referred to by the valley inhabitants as Imperatoria or Agrü).
