Medicinal Plants Yarrow ( Achillea millefolium )

Yarrow ( Achillea millefolium )

               Yarrow is believed to help boost the human immune system, treat wounds, and common illnesses. The herb has a long history of use among many cultures as a medicinally active botanical. Native Americans believed in Yarrow's healing power and also used it is a recreational stimulant. Yarrow contains the alkaloid Salicylic acid which is highly soluble in water. Salicylic acid is a white, crystalline solid organic compound that exist naturally in multiple plants of many species in nature. Salicylic acid is used in the production of synthetic over the counter pharmaceutical products like aspirin.



A French pharmacist known as Hendri Leroux, and Raffaele Piria, an Italian chemist first isolated the active alkaloids of the Salicylic family in 1828. A Greek physician known as Hippocrates discussed extracts from Willow Bark in the 4th century BC, extracts that contained the same family of alkaloids found in Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium). Hippocrates spoke of the power the extract had for easing aches, pains, and reducing fevers. What's truly incredible about these alkaloids is that they occur in many plants within nature. A few of the other plant species that contain these alkaloids include: meadowsweet ( Filipendula ulmaria ), White Willow ( Salix alba ) and Rosemary.



               I think this information should be known by just about everyone. So many people laugh at the idea of holistic medicine. The problem is they have no idea that there is much science behind it. Phytochemist have been isolating and studying compounds from these plants for some time now. The big pharmaceutical companies also have a great interest in these natural wonders. Many modern pharmaceutical drugs are made thanks to plants. Nature is a pharmacy that has been in buisness way longer than these big companies have.



               There are many different methods for consuming plant based medicine. Decoctions are generally used with root materials by boiling them for an extended period of time. Tinctures are made using high grade alcohol and soaking plant material for weeks at a time. Tea is the most commonly used method of consumption. It all depends on the herb, which constituents need to be extracted, and the ailments even play a role.


Caution: Consumption of Yarrow tea , or the application of the herb has induced photo-sensitivity, sensitivity to light. Not to be consumed in excessive or repetative dosages. Do not consume if you have ulcers.



Classifications: Diaphoretic, astringent, tonic, stimulant, analgesic, and mild aromatic.


Dosages:


Herbalists recommend Yarrow tea for severe colds, being most beneficial for reducing fevers by inducing sweating. One ounce of dried herb is mixed with 1 pint of water. Heat sometimes kills the potency of herbals depending on the melting point of the active constituents. After making the brew with one ounce of dried herb and 1 pint of water, it's recommended to drink in wine-glassful doses. You can sweeten your herbal tea's with sugar, or whatever you'd like. Yarrow is believed to open the pores freely and purify the blood stream. This herb is even recommended by herbalists for children's colds, and in cases of the measles or other eruptive diseases.

    live mullein plant ready for transplant
    The plant blooms and produces seeds every other year, different no? The leaves are fuzzy,soft, and rather large. Mullein leaves contain mucilage, a compound that's considered an expectorant. This means is helps loosen phlegm, breakup mucus, and expell it while relieving congestion. Ever heard of over-the-counter "mucinex" ? Just sayin!
