Present among the eight plants of the Neanderthal era, the Yarrow is a very ancient plant. It has been renowned since the Middle Ages for its healing properties – hence its nickname "cut grass" – and for its pain-relieving properties. It owes its official name to that of Achilles, who learned from Venus that he could heal the wounds of his soldiers. The Yarrow was part of the first aid kit of the soldiers of the First World War. It is used today in particular for its antispasmodic and digestive virtues. In the Celtic tradition, it is the plant of divination par excellence, the one that brings dynamism and courage, and reinforces the desire for love. It promotes listening and understanding of the other.
