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 the the plant kingdom. A few of the other plant species that contain these alkaloids include: meadowsweet ( Filipendula ulmaria ), White Willow ( Salix alba ) and Rosemary.

Yarrow was a very popular herb among the Native Americans. They used the whole plant , including the aerial parts to make an infusion used for treating acute infections such as colds and the flu. The Native Americans also used yarrow for fevers and the infusion of whole plant parts as a diuretic. It was believed that an infusion of the whole plant could also control coughing. Another popular plant used by the Native Americans for cough, colds, and the flu is known by the name Great Mullein.

Aside from internal use, the Natives would also make an infusion with the leaves for bites, stings, cuts and scrapes. The root of Yarrow was used in a decoction to wash pimples. An infusion of the leaves was also thought to aid in inducing sleep.

Yarrow flowers are a powerful pain reliever, similar to White Willow Bark that is used in the production of aspirin. The flowers are made into a decoction for headaches and chest pains. Yarrow flowers are believed to be good for the cardiovascular system. They have many of the same benefits as aspirin for health , according to herbalists.


Caution: Consumption of Yarrow tea , or the application of the herb has induced photo-sensitivity, sensitivity to light.


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!
