Both Europe and Asia use yarrow as a medicinal plant. The plant's use in food and medicine dates back to around 1200 BC, during the Trojan War. Yarrow gets its name from the ancient Greek hero Achilles - Achillea Millefolium, according to legend. Yarrow was used by this mythological hero to heal soldiers' wounds.
Yarrow and its use
Because the plant can grow in almost any soil, its roots are extremely strong, allowing it to overcome any obstacle. In everyday life, the plant's energy carries vitality, resilience, and balance. Assists in the achievement of objectives. Washing the floor with a yarrow can also help to clear the negative energy in the room.
Yarrow can be used in a variety of ways, including tea, tincture, ointment, cosmetics, and salads with young leaves and flowers. Anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, and urinary effects are all properties of yarrow. It also aids digestion and acts as a blood purifier and blood clot, making it an excellent aid for women's issues. It's especially useful if you're feeling under the weather and your head is throbbing. Cough relief is provided by yarrow tea.
Excessive consumption regularly can lead to excessive blood clotting. It is not advised to be used while pregnant because it increases the uterus' ability to contract.
When it comes to healing wounds and abrasions, the juice from a crushed leaf is comparable to that of a tea leaf.
Yarrow inside the tincture
In a spray bottle, yarrow tincture acts as a powerful closure for wounds and abrasions. The tincture is typically made with spirits or vodka, but it can also be made at 40 degrees.
1. Pour half a liter of herb into the jar and top with vodka.
2. Place the lid on the jar and keep it in a dark, warm place for two weeks. Meanwhile, gently shake the container.
3. Strain the plants and store the tincture in a dark container.
The plant's anti-inflammatory and soothing properties make it ideal for a steam bath, mask, or facial water in skincare.
Soothing buckwheat pillow
Although the soothing buckwheat pillow is quite hard, it conforms to the shape of a sleeper's head. A pillow's purpose is to ensure a restful night's sleep and to relieve stress.
- The desired amount of buckwheat husks (depending on the size of the pillowcase).
- 1/2 cup dried lavender flowers.
- 1/2 cup dried yarrow flowers.
- 1/2 cup dried chamomile flowers.
In a pillowcase, combine all of the ingredients, mix well, and sew. Don't overfill the top with buckwheat husks; you'll end up with a pillow that's too firm. Because the finished pillow cannot be washed, use an extra pillowcase on top of it. Yarrow can be found in Female Force Body Scrub and Curetik Ointment in our product line. Both have received prestigious awards as well.
