The edelweiss flower gained worldwide fame courtesy of Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. Despite the movie taking place in Austria, it’s actually the Germans who have revered the tiny alpine posy for centuries. The fact that it survives at all—given that it grows at astonishing altitudes of between 6,000 and 9,000 feet above sea level, clings to craggy pieces of vertiginous limestone and withstands the withering glare of the sun—makes it a miracle of nature. If plucked, it retains its shape and color for years! For all these reasons, it’s earned the moniker “eternal flower.” And it’s no surprise fräuleins have been capitalizing on the bud and steeping the precious flower in boiling water and using the “tea” as a face rinse. According to Debra Jaliman, MD, New York City dermatologist and author of Skin Rules: “Edelweiss flowers are high in antioxidants. They’re also antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. When used in creams, lotions and serums, they can be soothing to the skin and help ease redness and irritation.”
