Did you know? Yarrow stems were used as the original object for the casting of the hexagrams of the I Ching, a divination system described in one of the oldest known classic Chinese texts. While other objects replaced it over time, the yarrow stalk method was reinvented and is still used today.
In Europe, yarrow is sometimes called the "herb's herb," because it is believed to benefit the herbs or plants that grow around it.
In traditional Chinese medicine, yarrow is considered a bitter, pungent, cold herb that expels heat. It is also a bitter tonic.
