5. Great for Healing Wounds

Yarrow is antimicrobial, antibacterial, and an antiseptic.

So if you are outside and you get cut you can actually chew yarrow and spit the chewed-up plant matter on the wound.

This will help stop the bleeding, plus it will kill germs and clot the blood so you don't bleed out.

It will also kill the pain.

Healing wounds is actually what made yarrow famous.

It was originally found around 60000 B.C.

in Neanderthal Burial Sites in Iraq.

But it gained its genus name Achillea Millefolium from the myth that a centaur named Chiron gave the herb to Achilles to use on the battlefield.

It is also known to help remedy an eye infection.
