This plant is said to be known by man since the age of the Neanderthals. It was also included in some of the soldiers of world war one’s emergency kit.
Use and advices:
Infuse two tablespoons of dried flowers per teacup and let them steep in 70-80ºC water for 7-8 minutes before enjoying. We always recommend drinking herbal infusions in slow sips.
- Do not use Yarrow during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Yarrow is not recommended for children.
- Yarrow may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with other anticoagulants.
- Persons allergic to plants in the family of Asteraceaes may get skin irritation from contact with the plant.
Yarrow is harvested when it is in full flower, usually a period stretching over the whole summer. Even though the leaves are edible, it is the flowers that are the most interesting to collect. Harvest on a dry and warm day, and always in clean areas. This flower often has particularly many tiny insects in its crown, so leave the flowers in a place where these can come out and go away by themselves, prior to placing them in the final drying area. As with all wild plant harvesting, make certain of your identification of the Yarrow prior to collecting and consuming.
The availability of the plants that we propose can vary during the year, as nature itself changes with the season, and our stock. If you require large quantities, please contact us in advance.
