Yarrow is a member of the aster family and is closely related to both chrysanthemums and chamomile. In Medieval times, yarrow leaves were rolled up and stuffed in the nose to stop bleeding. For centuries, yarrow has been popular in European folk medicine, in part because yarrow contains flavonoids (plant-based chemicals) that support normal saliva secretion and stomach acid, helping to support healthy digestion. Yarrow helps to support healthy blood flow by normalizing circulation. It has also been shown to support healthy digestion by support healthy secretions of fluids in both the mouth and stomach.
