The Effects of Achillea Millefolium Tea
The meadows, pastures and roadsides in the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere are the common home of a flowering plant known by the botanical name Achillea millefolium. Known by the common name yarrow, achillea millefolium is a member of the aster family, a title it shares with daisies, marigold, echinacea and dandelion, merely to name a few. Its small, sweet-scented flowers appear somewhere between May and June. It is not commonly used in gardens today due to its ability to spread rapidly, but achillea millefolium has a long history of medicinal use. Its flowers and leaves have served to make a poultice, salve, tincture, and herbal tea, respected for the variety of its effects. Among its many uses, achillea millefolium tea may be used to promote digestion, shorten a cold and support healthy blood pressure.
