History
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) has been used as a primary medicinal herb for thousands of years, and was known as Herba militaris in classical times because of its ability to stop bleeding on the battlefield. Yarrow has a long history of use in many cultures around the world including those of Scandinavia, Asia and Europe.

According to herbal legend, Chiron the centaur taught Achilles how to use the herb, which was said to have grown from the rust on his spear. Yarrow is also associated with Aphrodite, Hermes, and the European Horned God. However, this is not the earliest appearance of Yarrow in history, as it was even found (along with other medicinal plants) in a grave at a Neanderthal burial ground.

This herb has been used in magical traditions for contacting or seeking out a specific person and in divination and love spells. An ancient Asian saying states that “Wherever Yarrow grows, one need not fear wild beasts or poisonous plants.” The I Ching even uses Yarrow stalks in its ritual.
