Yarrow’s (Achillea millefolium), name itself comes from Greek mythology, where Achilles, the legendary warrior, was said to have used yarrow to heal his soldiers' wounds. Throughout history, various cultures have valued yarrow for its medicinal properties. In Europe and Asia, it was traditionally used to staunch bleeding, reduce inflammation, and aid wound healing. Native Americans also had various uses for yarrow, including teas for stomachaches and poultices for rashes.

While yarrow's medicinal efficacy remains a subject of debate, its culinary uses are more straightforward. The leaves and flowers of yarrow are both edible and can be used in a variety of dishes. The leaves have a somewhat bitter flavor and can be used in salads or as a potherb. The flowers, with their slightly sweet taste, can be used to make teas, tinctures, and even wine. However, it's important to note that consuming large quantities of yarrow may cause skin irritation or other side effects, so moderation is key.

Some cultures believed burning yarrow could banish negativity and cleanse a space. Yarrow was also sometimes carried as a charm for courage and good health.
