Yarrow

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to the Northern Hemisphere. In antiquity, yarrow was known as herbal militaris, for its use in staunching the flow of blood from wounds. Other common names for this species include common yarrow, gordaldo, nosebleed plant, old man's pepper, devil's nettle, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier's woundwort, thousand-leaf (as its binomial name affirms), and thousand-seal.

Yarrow has seen historical use as a medicine, often because of its astringent effects. Decoctions have been used to treat inflammations, such as hemorrhoids, and headaches. Infusions of yarrow, taken either internally or externally, are said to speed recovery from severe bruising.

Today, yarrow is valued mainly for its action in colds and influenza, and also for its effect on the circulatory, digestive, excretory, and urinary systems.

The dark blue essential oil, extracted by steam distillation of the flowers, is generally used as an anti-inflammatory or in chest rubs for colds and influenza.

The aerial parts of the plant are used for phlegm conditions, as a bitter digestive tonic to encourage bile flow, as a diuretic, as a tonic for the blood, to stimulate the circulation, and can be used for high blood pressure.

Yarrow intensifies the medicinal action of other herbs taken with it,and helps eliminate toxins from the body.

The salicylic acid derivatives are a component of aspirin, which may account for its use in treating fevers and reducing pain.
