About this product
The yarrow plant grows native to temperate regions throughout the northern hemisphere. As a member of the aster family, it is kin to daisies, marigolds, and dandelions. Yarrow is often known by its Spanish nickname, plumajillo, which means "little feather", a name it earned from the small, feathery appearance of its leaves. Yarrow has been used historically in Europe and areas of Asia. According to legends, the mythical hero Achilles purportedly brought yarrow with his armies as to aid them along their travels. Today, tea made from yarrow may serve as a soothing herbal tisane for everyday enjoyment.
This small flowering herb offers a variety of vitamins, minerals and other natural constituents. When you partake of yarrow tea, you receive a natural boost in vitamin C, niacin, and minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. Yarrow’s prime unique constituent is achilleine, but it also a natural source of flavonoids, essential fatty acids, coumarins, triterpenes, phytosterol and natural bitters. These are merely a handful of the many constituents found in yarrow tea, and as several of them offer antioxidant properties, there is even more reason to give yarrow tea a chance.
