Achillea Millefolium for a Common Cold
Known more commonly by the name yarrow, achillea millefolium can often be found in temperate areas across the Northern Hemisphere. Between the months of April and August, these plants will blossom with broad bunches of small white, pink or yellow flowers, depending on the variety. These blossoms give of a sweet, pleasant fragrance. In spite of their beauty, these plants are rarely used as decorative plants because of their ability to spread rapidly, and in some places, yarrow is even regarded as a weed. However, yarrow is still regarded for its medicinal purposes, and its flowers, leaves and roots may be used to create poultices, tinctures and herbal teas.
