Yarrow is native to Europe and Asia. It is one of the most widely used medicinal plants in the world. The Latin name “Achillea” comes from the Greek hero Achilles, who is believed to have treated the wounds of his fellow soldiers with this plant. After it was introduced to colonial North America, people started chewing its leaves to stop toothakes. Yarrow contains a volatile oil comprised of azulene, caryophyllene, thujone, eucalyptol, α- and β-pinene, and borneol; lactones, tannins, and alkaloids.

Yarrow may be beneficial for wound healing, hemorrhoids, IBS, fever, colds, absence of menstruation, menstrual cramps, stomach cramps, ulcers, dysentery, diarrhea, loss of appetite, digestion, and to induce sweating.
