Yarrow has a history dating back as far as the battle of Troy, where it was used to treat injured soldiers and adopted the common name of 'soldier's woundwort'. The ancient Greeks gave Yarrow the name ‘Achillea’ after Achilles, the legendary heroic warrior.
This perennial herb grows to about 3 feet tall and is found in Europe, west Asia, and North America. The white flowers appear in flat, daisy-like clusters. It may be found in pastures, meadows, and along roadsides.
Yarrow makes a very good medicinal tea with a strong, astringent taste.
