The Health Benefits Of Yarrow Tea

Yarrow Tea has a list of health benefits that include, relieving nausea, soothing skin rashes and fighting bacteria.

In ancient times Yarrow was called Military Herb because it was commonly used to stop bleeding and support wound healing. It’s also known as Old Man’s Pepper, Soldier’s Herb, Thousand Weed and Nose Bleed.

Yarrow Tea comes from a plant with small normally white flowers and hairy, feather- shaped leaves. It belongs to the same family as sunflowers, dandelions, daisies and marigolds. The entire plant is used, both dried and fresh and is best when gathered while in flower.

The taste of Yarrow Tea is bitter. Although it has an unpleasing flavor it can stimulate your system. To make it more pleasing to consume, add honey, lemon or sugar to mask its bitterness. Because it has a strong, pungent aroma, it can help clear your congestion.
