I first learned about using herbs for healing from my grandmother and mother. They often used fresh garden or wild herbs to make infusions, tinctures or balms. I love how simple herbs, often seen as unnecessary weeds, have such power to nourish and heal us.


Yarrow is known in traditional folk medicine as a remedy for all diseases and complaints. It is one of the oldest medicinal plants known to man, highly valued for its properties to regulate bodily fluids. It stimulates the production of fresh blood cells in the bone marrow, which may be the reason for the unusually wide range of medical problems.


Lady's mantle is an impressive lymphatic tonifier, it soothes and relieves water retention, restores the flow of body fluids in the organ systems and has cooling properties.


sweet woodruff is another wonderful medicinal plant, used for various health problems. It is excellent as a blood purifier and diuretic.


Recipe (ingredients for a 1.5 liter infusion pot):


  • 2 tablespoons of dried yarrow
  • 2 tablespoons dried lady's mantle
  • 2 tablespoons dried woodruff
  • 1.5 liters of filtered freshly boiled water



Put all the dry herbs in an infuser in a jar. Pour boiled water over the herbs, making sure they are completely covered. Mix the herbs in the infuser, cover with a lid and let steep for 15 minutes. You can keep it in the jar or pour it into a thermos to keep it warm.

Drink this delicious healing infusion throughout the day.


Contraindication: do not use yarrow during pregnancy and lactation
