Achillea Millefolium Tea For Circulation
The botanical name Achillea millefolium refers to yarrow, a flowering plant in the Aster family. Yarrow has a long history of medicinal use, with many unique properties that seem to give it a dual nature. Its first known use was for treating wounds, and it was often carried into battle by soldiers. The Greek hero Achilles, from whence the plant earned its named, purportedly carried it in the Battle of Troy. However, yarrow is not only used to stop bleeding, but can also be used to improve circulation within the body. The two effects may appear contradictory, but only help to further demonstrate the varied usefulness of achillea millefolium.
