Yarrow is a flowering herb in the aster family. It has been used for healing and spiritual work for tens of thousands of years in cultures all over the world. Yarrow’s botanical name, Achillea, comes from the story in Greek mythology that Achilles was taught by Chiron to use the herb to staunch bleeding in his wounded soldiers. Yarrow can be used in a bath to promote spiritual awakening and emotional healing. It can also be worn in a sachet to grant courage, attract love and friendship, and protect the wearer from negativity. It has been used in divination for centuries, and a cup of yarrow tea can strengthen psychic abilities before tarot reading or casting runes.
