Herb Profile: Yarrow

Latin Name: Achillea millefolium, A. lanulosa
Family: Asteracea (Daisy Family)

Etymology: The name Achillea comes from the herb’s association with the Greek hero Achilles, who carried the herb with him in battle to treat the wounds of his soldiers. It is said that Achilles was taught the blood staunching properties of this lovely herb by his mentor Chiron, yet another myth tells of Achilles using the herb to heal wounds at the behest of Aphrodite. 

Millefolium loosely translates to “one thousand leaves” which reflects the many tiny leaves arranged on the stalks of this plant giving it a feathery appearance. 

The English name yarrow derives from the Old English word gearwe which is related to the Dutch gerw and the old High German garawa. These names may come from the proto-Germanic words gelwaz, meaning yellow, or garwaz, meaning ready or prepared.
