Yarrow’s virtues as a healing herb have been well known through history. It’s Latin name, Achillea millefolium, is derived from the Greek Hero Achilles. In the legends, Achilles' soldiers used Yarrow to treat their wounds, so the plant is also called soldier's woundwort. In Greek mythology, it is said that when Achilles was born, his mother dipped him in Yarrow tea, holding him by the ankle.One of Yarrow's lessons and skills is about recognizing that wounds, especially deep ones, benefit from slow and carefully protected healing. In Medieval times, Yarrow leaves were rolled up and stuffed in the nose to stop bleeding. Yarrow helps to support blood flow and digestion.
Yarrow can be found all over the globe and it can grow in most soils even thriving in poor conditions with little water. It grows from rocky beaches to alpine meadows. Plants that grow on wind swept sea cliffs and mountain sides have the strongest medicine. All parts of Yarrow are useful. The flower is most commonly used and should be gathered when it is fully open and but not yet turning brown or yellowish. The flower is higher in aromatic oils, whereas the leaves are higher in tannins. Leaves can be harvested any time of year but are most potent in spring and early summer. Our Yarrow is grown in the mountain regions across the Balkans.
