Description
 

Yarrow was formerly much esteemed as a vulnerary (an aid to wound healing), and its old names of Soldier’s Wound Wort and Knight’s Milfoil testify to this. Gerard tells us that it is the same plant with which Achilles staunched the bleeding wounds of his soldiers, hence the name of the genus, Achillea. By the Ancients themselves, it was called Herba Militaris, the military herb. Its use and success in quickly stoping nosebleeds gave it another of its popular names. The species name, millefolium, is derived from the many feathery segments of its foliage.

Native American herbal medicine makes extensive use of Yarrow. Among the Micmac people of Maine, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, the stalk was chewed or stewed to induce sweating to “break” fevers and colds. They also pounded the stalks into a pulp to be applied to bruises, sprains, and swelling.

Storage: It should be kept in an airtight container and stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

Note: Yarrow should never be used in pregnancy, nursing or when taking medications. Please see your healthcare practitioner if you are on medications prior to using.

“Flow on for ever, Yarrow Stream!
Fulfill thy pensive duty,
Well pleased that future Bards should chant
For simple hearts thy beauty”

-William Wordsworth

Yarrow is an herb you should keep in your arsenal. Do some research.

Beeyoutiful's Yarrow is of superior quality. Time and age don't allow me to wild craft as much anymore and I trust Beeyoutiful.
