Commonly known as Yarrow, the species Achillea millefolium is a hardy, flowering perennial that is native to temperate regions of Canada and the Northern Hemisphere. Yarrow produces compact aromatic flowers that tend to be predominantly white or yellow.
Yarrow possesses a remarkable number of therapeutic and wellness benefits. This revered botanical has been used and praised for thousands of years by many societies, and it holds a special place within many cultures and traditions. The genus name Achillea is attributed to Achilles, a Greek warrior and hero that is said to have administered yarrow to his wounded soldiers. Yarrow has been mentioned repeatedly throughout history. One of the oldest reports claims that Yarrow was discovered inside a burial ground dated to the Neanderthal period.
