Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, is a restorative herb that has been scientifically shown to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antispasmodic properties. It helps during times of circulation and blood distress, PMS, menorrhagia and anemia. I personally like it to help protect and restore against negative energy invasion, hormone headaches, general fatigue and to heal a broken or grieving heart.

How It Works:
Legend has it that yarrow’s unique virtues were discovered by Achilles.
Yarrow contains an alkaloid principle called achilleine, as well as flavonoids, volatile oils, potassium and calcium salts of organic acids, and tannins. Its effects are mostly astringent, which make yarrow helpful for firming and tightening tissues. Yarrow nutritionally supports the mucous membranes and has a soothing effect on the digestive system. It is closely related to chamomile, both botanically and chemically.
