Compared to cultivated yarrows, common yarrow is the hardiest and most medicinally active. Flowers are usually white with occasional pink flowers, borne in flat-topped clusters. Yarrow self-sows readily. For the highest essential oil content, it is best grown in un-enriched soil. Medicinal: The aerial parts are used medicinally. Yarrow functions as a diaphoretic herb for fevers, and is one of the best herbs for this purpose. It also has hypotensive action, is anti-inflammatory and hemostatic. Caution: Prolonged or frequent use is contraindicated.
