Did you know that yarrow is a wonderful herb for treating children as it relieves fevers and relaxes the irritability and cramping that can be caused by fevers and illness? The Chinese say it promotes intelligence and European traditions hold that it protects against demons. It has a long history of healing skin and wounds, treating colds and hay fever, and helping to ease digestive issues. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, yarrow is thought to promote intelligence and help to Move Qi (Energy) and Blood. Yarrow sticks were used as the original tool for divination using the I Ching, the ancient Taoist book of changes – a foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
