Achillea Millefolium Tea Benefits
In antiquity, achillea millefolium was used for a vast number of things. Its name ‘achillea’ is derived from its association with Achilles, the Greek hero, who purportedly carried it into battle with him because of its ability to stop blood hemorrhaging from a wound. Many of its names reflected this quality, including staunchweed, knight’s milfoil, soldier’s woundwort and herbal militaris. In China, it was used in divinations, while medieval Europeans used it in an herbal mix for flavoring beer before hops was introduced. Throughout history, the use of yarrow that has endured longest is its use for making herbal tea. Achillea millefolium tea has many positive qualities, which include its ability to promote digestion, ease inflammation, and fortify the immune system, merely to name a few.
