I have put it in a tea. I thought later that perhaps I was crazy to do this! Who knows it could be dangerous, and I was just taking the word of an herb book. I liked it though. There is something about it yarrow tea that seems to soothe the throat.

Have you ever drank it?

It's also good in the treatment of fevers, when used in conjunction with anti-viral/anti-bacterial garlic. I prefer the "wild" ones, as they have more of the medicinal properties than the ornamental ones. I enjoyed this article!
