I recently discovered the wonderful uses of Yarrow , while fencing one day I cut my hand and while the blood was coming out I walked over to a yarrow plant pulled the leaves off rolled them up rubbing it on the wound and instantly the bleeding stopped , I now carry powdered yarrow with me at all times.
What is your yarrow story ?
I make many products now with yarrow and they all work amazing.

Zone 6B or 7 can't decide
So I searched yarrow and came up with this for identification. I personally like these old drawings over pictures myself. I believe I have this plant growing wild about the place and here I thought it was a useless weed.

The best part about yarrow it's FREE it grows wild most all over the USA .
You can make tinctures , salves , oils , tea , wound packing kits etc .

Can you share more about yarrow powder? What parts of the plant do you use? How do you use the powder?

I strip the leaves from the plant after they have dried , I then add the leaves to a spice grinder to grind into a powder.
The power is a great assistance to minor cuts that are bleeding as it stops the bleeding.
I also add it to aloe vera gel to make yarrowvera which works on minor burns scrapes insect bites etc ( these have all worked for me )
You can also use the flowers for tea and tinctures , Many endless uses of this wonderful little plant .

Thank you @Okiepan ! I feel challenged by herbal remedies, but yarrow powder seems feasible. I know there is wild yarrow my property.

Could you start a thread on mullein? I saw some gorgeous mullein rosettes this year but I didnt know what to do with it.
