Yarrow is a well-known diaphoretic herb which has long been used to reduce fevers and clear up congestion colds, flu, and other upper respiratory infections. It is also an excellent herb for cleansing programs, for which 2-3 dropperfuls of the tincture are added to hot water or cleansing teas and used in conjunction with saunas and sweating therapy. When used cold, the herb has the ability to clear heat and toxins, especially nitrogenous waste products from the body through the urine. As a bitter tonic, it is used for lack of appetite, general debility, and convalescence.
Direct sow yarrow seeds in fall or early spring; fall planted seed will remain dormant until spring. To start seeds indoors, plant them on the surface of the soil since they need light to germinate. Keep the soil temperature at 65-75°, but out of the hottest rays of sunlight. While the young plants should be watered to help them establish a deep root system, too much watering of mature plants can cause stem and root rot or mildew. This species grows best in sandy or well drained soil, and tolerates drought conditions.
