Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium) aka Soldier’s woundwort, staunchweed or nosebleed.

Herbs in mortar pestle vintage
This beautiful perennial herb is well known for it’s wound healing and blood stemming properties throughout history.

Yarrow (along with plantain) is one of my favorite foraged first aid herbs.
Grab a handful of flowers & leaves (or chew it up a little to make it softer) and pack it into a bleeding wound, or up a bleeding nose to reduce bloodflow.

An ointment of the leaves cures wounds and is good for inflammations, ulcers, fistulas, swelling etc.

Yarrow can also be used for internal bleeding, heavy menstruation or bleeding gums, by making into an infusion.

To stop hair falling, bathe the head with a yarrow infusion.

Not only does Yarrow contain antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, it’s also diaphoretic (produces sweating) so yarrow is commonly used for a fever, cold or flu, to encourage sweating out of fevers. 

An old folk remedy contains Yarrow, Peppermint & Elderflower in a herbal tea for fevers and flu.

Yarrow is also a bitter herb, so it stimulates the digestive system and can be used for all sorts of digestive troubles, be it bloating, flatulence, constipation & also diarrhea (given it’s astringent nature), plus great for gut healing.

You can brew both the leaves & flowers in a herbal infusion, the flavor is very strong. You can also add a few feathery leaves to salads, which look beautiful, but again, don't use too many, as the flavor can be overpowering.

In the garden Yarrow is a compost activator, and great for attracting beneficial insects, including predatory wasps & lady bugs. It's very hardy, so easy to grow.

Lastly, if you’re into home brewing, yarrow is a great bitter herb to add to your brews.

They like to grow in full sunlight and are very hardy.

Parts used: flowering stems in summer & autumn.

Organically grown in a recycled or compostable pot.
