Anecdotal: Achillea has expansive and far-reaching properties. As love medicine it has been handled to both cast spells for love and intervene against undesired ones. It has been tied over wedding beds, placed under pillows for visions of lovers as well as entreated to attract friends and contact distant loved ones. Achillea is believed to combat fear, promote courage and placate the spirits that impair vitality. The smudge or steam of Achillea flowers repels malevolent spirits, purges them from places and individuals as well as sets up formidable shields of protection. Achillea tea enhances psychic awareness. Spirit handlers work with Achillea when dire catastrophes of every known type occur. It intervenes when songs are lost, visions are unclear, and when rebirth into a new life is exceedingly difficult. The roots and flowers are entreated by those peculiar to eating fire or walking on coals. Achillea can be rendered into green paint. It is believed to be a superb lure for abundance, making it Bear Medicine. It has long been used in divination by many societies for the purpose of understanding the weather. Achillea can be carried, burned, steamed, and floated in bath water, brewed into tea or grown in the garden to bring its amazing properties into our lives.
