Αχιλλέα λουλούδι

Achillea Millefolium

The Αχιλλέα λουλούδι was known as "soldier's herb" because it used in battles to treat wounds. Its botanical name comes from the legend of Achilles, who was wounded in the heel by the poisoned arrow of Paris. It is said that the goddess Aphrodite, weeping, gave him the Achilles Flower (also called "Aphrodite's Tear" or "Aphrodite's Smile.") Achilles Flower has pain-relieving properties and softens arthritic and rheumatism pains. It is diuretic and cleanses the kidneys. Legend has it that Mother Nature gave this herb to women to ease the pains of severe menstrual and menopausal problems.
