OVERVIEW:

Yarrow has a feather-like leaf shape and texture and it's an herb closely related to chamomile and chrysanthemums, with an anise-like scent. Yarrow's sweet, yet bitter, taste has a similar flavor profile to tarragon and can be interchangeable in recipes. Add it to teas, soups, and sauces. It really can make any dish more interesting while providing you a treasure of health.

 

It is an exceptional plant that has been used as food and medicine since ancient times. Yarrow contains the chemical compound achilliene which is responsible for its healing power. This humble herb was used to heal the ancient Greek warriors in battlefields. Some other health benefits due to its nutrients that include anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties are gastrointestinal relief, hormonal balance, cold and flu relief, urinary tract support and skin treatment.
