Achillea millefolium, commonly known as yarrow, gordaldo, mosebleed plant, old man’s pepper, devil’s nettle, milfoil, soldier’s woundwort, thousand-leaf and thousand-seal, is a flowering plant, native to temperate regions of the Northern hemisphere. It has white or yellow clusters of tiny flowers, which look like an umbrella. The herb is purported to be mildly aromatic, bitter, tonic, stimulant and it cleanses the blood. It has styptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-hemorrhagic and healing properties. The dark blue essential oil, extracted by steam distillation of the flowers is generally used in chest rubs for colds and influenza. Achillea induces sweating. As a result a hot beverage can reduce fever and cleanse the body of toxins. It contains coumarins and salicylic acid, which prevent the formation of blood clots. It generally stimulates the blood circulation and it can be used for high blood pressure. It fights hemorrhoids, menstrual disorders and generally all internal hemorrhages. It should not be consumed for more than one month.
