Grindelia is a genus of plants native to the Americas belonging to the sunflower family. The genus was named for Latvian botanist David Hieronymus Grindel, 1776–1836. They are herbaceous plants or subshrubs with annual, biennial, or perennial life cycles.
Grindelia was used by North American Indians to treat skin irritations such as Poison Ivy. It is also used externally by making a poultice to treat burns, dermatitis, eczema and skin eruptions. Modern herbalists use this plant to treat bronchial asthma and respiratory impediments due to phlegm build up.
