I wanted to talk about an herb we here at Kindred Acres will not go without. We love this herb so much for many reasons.
We are talking about Achillea millefolium, also known as White Yarrow or Common Yarrow.
You can find this plant growing wild. If you are well versed in wild plants this could be a great score for you! If you aren't well versed, I suggest only harvesting cultivated plants in your garden because there is a poisonous look-alike.
White yarrow draws in a lot of pollinators when it flowers, it is such a pretty plant with it's whispy ferny looking leaves. It also mines for minerals deep in the soil via it's deep taproots, making it an excellent plant to use for chop and drop or compost teas.
But white yarrow is not just for compost teas for the garden....it makes an excellent tea for humans! We use it when we are feeling down, feeling like we may need a boost to our immune system when we were around sickly people, or on the very rare occasion, we do get sick. It helps regulate temperature for high fevers and works for many different functions in the body to help you heal fast.
Here is a short video we did going over some brief information about it.
With lots of love
