Releasing a beautiful aroma, Yarrow is an aromatic and hardy perennial plant that can be found in the Central and Eastern US flourishing in the countryside, in meadows and pastures, as well as the edges of highways, in cities, disturbed soils, and many other places in need of healing and balance. The Latin name Achillea refers to the great Greek warrior Achilles who is said to have used Yarrow to heal the wounds of his soldiers.

In nature, yarrow is doing great work attracting many beneficial bees, wasps, and butterflies. The root secretions strengthen and protect other plants in the surrounding area, helping them become more disease resistant. Essential oil rich Yarrow will also help keep harmful pests away with the potent aromatic phytochemicals. Yarrow is excellent for binding loose soil together and preventing erosion, while also proving a wonderful companion plant in the garden, helping co-create a very healthy ecosystem.

Yarrow is also an extremely valuable medicinal herb.
