pleasure garden: yarrow

This plant was know in New France mainly for its medicinal properties. Indeed, yarrow has been used for millennia to cure wounds, ulcers and bleeding haemorrhoids. In North America, most Native groups used it. They called it “squirrel tail” because of the shape of its leaves. Its essential oil acts as an anti-inflammatory. Yarrow infusion can be used in compresses to treat wounds.
