Aruncus aethusifolius is a perennial flowering plant living in the high altitudes (>700 m) of Halla Mountainand found only in Jeju Island. It is inhabited around rocky creeks and blooms in August. Its yellowishwhite flowers resemble a goat’s beard. The whole plants or flowers were traditionally used in herbalremedies, to stop bleeding, treat tonsillitis, detoxify, and enhance stamina. It is also popular as anornamental plant. Since it is typically inhabited between wet rocks on high altitudes, it symbolizes thetriumphant survival of small creature in adverse conditions.
No scientific study has been done with A. aethusifolius. However, the genus Aruncus is similar to A.dioicus which is also known as a goat’s beard. Several solvents were used to divide 80% ethanolextract of a goat’s beard by a polarity. Among them, ethyl acetate fractionation showed higher activitieson total polyphenol contents, DPPH and ABTS radicals scavenging assays, and tyrosinase inhibitionactivity.
