Preparation of tea

Boil a cup (250ml) of water and pour over 1 tablespoon of the herb, leave to steep with a lid* for 15 minutes, strain, and without sweetening, drink twice a day 20-30 minutes before meals.
* The lid ensures that none of the goodness of the tea is lost through evaporation.

N.B. You should not use metal implements when handling and preparing (brewing, stepping and drinking) herbal teas – this includes spoons, mugs and filters. This does not apply to heating the water (and excludes boiling the roots in the water). Wooden spoon accessories are available in our shop.

Possible side effects

Can stain urine dark brown, so do not be afraid.

It may cause diarrhoea in very sensitive individuals. But such a case is rare, but in these cases do not increase the dose.

Not recommended for women who take contraceptive pills are used, especially for those who know that they are prone to malignancies.

Yarrow may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae/Compositae family. Members of this family include ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and many others.

Yarrow might slow blood clotting. In theory, taking Yarrow might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders.
