Yarrow Flower, 1 oz
Yarrow Flower has a long history of use, dating back into antiquity. as such, it has acquired many names over the years, including Achilea millefolium, nosebleed plant, old man`s pepper, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier`s woundwort, thousand leaf, and thousand seal. As one might guess from the varied names, Yarrow Flower was often carried along with military armies on the march for the purpose of slowing and stopping the blood flow of wounds. Indeed, it was written that the Greek hero Achilles even carried it with his army to treat wounds. In the mid ages, the flower's use was extended further, and was a component Gruit, which was used to flavor beers before hops became prevalent. It was also used as a popular vegetable during the 17th century, with leaves providing a pleasant taste when they were used in a manner similar to spinach. Yarrow flowers are also often used in handfasting rituals and weddings, and are believed to be of use in spells of divination.
Yarrow Flower also known as Achilea Millefolium, Yarroway, Knight's Milfoil, or Old Man's Pepper. Used to flavor beer in the 17th century, and used mainly today to make skin care products. In magical practices it may be a powerful ingredient in work around strength, power, deep love, directing action towards the center of the heart, healing spiritual wounds, and driving away negative people.
