Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess.
I am taking part in the 2014 A-Z Challenge - 26 posts on 26 days of April, with Sundays off. Today's letter is: Y for Yarrow [Click here to see my other AtoZ posts]
Yarrow (botanical name "Achillea Millefolium") is a herbaceous plant that grows everywhere, in grass, meadows, pastures and even by the roadside. It has stems that can reach 3-1/2 feet in height and leaves that have a feathery appearance.
It has a strong, sweet scent, similar to chrysanthemums. The plant has a long history as a "healing herb" in the treatment of wounds, cuts and abrasions. It can also be used as an astringent, tonic, stimulant, diaphoretic and tea for severe colds and fevers. Back in the day it was also used as snuff!
See you next time!
