Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a plant that grows throughout the world. The above ground parts are used to make medicine.
Yarrow contains chemicals that might help to stop stomachcramps and fight infections.
People commonly use yarrow for eczema, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), wound healing, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
Yarrow is sometimes called bloodwort. Don’t confuse this with Bloodroot.
