Description

Yarrow Leaf & Flower
Achillea millefolium L.
Organic
1 ounce

Yarrow has been used historically to help treat severe colds, it opens pores and purifies the blood. Yarrow has also been used as an astringent and tonic.

Yarrow received its Latin name Achillea from the legendary Greek hero Achilles. According to the common legend, Achilles's mother dipped him into the river Styx by the ankle in an effort to make him invulnerable. Fighting many battles as a seemingly invincible warrior, Achilles used yarrow to treat the wounds of his fellow soldiers. He later died from a wound to his heel, as it was the one unprotected part of his anatomy.

Typical Preparations:

Tea infusions, juice (from the fresh herb), tinctures, as a compress, and in baths.

Precautions:

Specific: Not for use in pregnancy except under the supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner. Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family should exercise caution with yarrow, as allergic cross-reactivity is common in Asteraceae plants.
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Packaged in a lined food safe, re-sealable Kraft bag with window.
