MAGICK and MEDICINE: YARROW

AND THE NEW MOON

ACHILLEA MILLEFOLIUM
YARROW

This plant’s Latin name is derived from the Greek hero Achilles and during the Trojan wars, Yarrow was used to treat wounds

The leaves of this plant encourage clotting so it can be used fresh for nosebleeds

MEDICINE

Insert a fresh yarrow leaf into the nostril to stop nosebleed

Infusion Drink, hot tea, with fresh brewed leaves, steeped 13 minutes by hourglass, for upper respiratory phlegm

This time of year, in the Spring and sometimes through the Summer, those who suffer hay fever, put fresh yarrow leaves in a pot of fresh boiling water and inhale the steam, some have also used this method for asthma

The Yarrow plant is harvested during flowering and the dried aerial parts are boiled in water, strained, and used as a bitter digestive tonic to encourage bile flow

Any cuts or grazes to the skin make a Poultice and wrap the fresh leaves around the affected area, cover with a clean cloth or bandage

A Poultice is just taking the fresh leaves and boil them in water for about 10-15 minutes, or until they are soft and saturated with the water, squeeze out excess water and place on cut and wrap up, this can be repeated every 2-4 hours

MAGICK

INTENDED TRUE LOVE
YARROW SPELL

On the night of the New Moon, the first night of the New Moon

Place some fresh Yerrow Herb under your pillow with the intention of knowing your True Love

Recite these words:
good night, fair yarrow
thrice good night to thee
I hope before tomorrow’s dawn
my true love I shall see

If marriage is in the Stars for you
You shall see your intended true love on the following morning

Your true love may also come to you in a dream

Be patient, spells take time to procure and you gotta believe!

And your True Love shall come…
~~~

The Yarrow Herb is also called in WitchCraft, Seven Year’s Love

It is a powerful incense for Divination and Love Spells, used dried

Yarrow Incense, when burned in the presence of the two, has the power to keep couples happily married

Yarrow Tea is drunk to improve psychic powers
~~~

…most men say, that the leaves chewed, and especially greene, are a remedie for toothache…
