Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) has long been used as a healing agent from 40-60,000 years ago to induce sweating and low fever. Traditional herbalists in China and India have used Yarrow to stop minor bleeding and to treat wounds and inflammation, especially in the intestines and reproductive tract. It has also traditionally been used as a mild sedative. 

Yarrow has been used to relieve bruises and pain via its salicylate- like derivatives such as stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol that reduce the inflammatory processes, which may accelerate healing. These compounds stop the formation of enzymes necessary for a series of chemical reactions that cause inflammation and pain. 

A study comes from the School of Pharmacy of the Tehran University of Medical Sciences. The researchers studied 31 patients with chronic kidney disease in a double-blind placebo controlled trial and concluded that yarrow, when taken in proper doses, does lower nitrate levels in the blood. Therefore, it can have positive effects for people suffering from kidney and liver disorders.
