Milfoil, Achillea millefolium, known commonly as yarrow or common yarrow.  In Russia milfoil is named "Tysyachelistnik"  (The herb with 1000 leaves). Good name: how many leaves has this herb, what do you think?
The herb is purported to be a diaphoretic, astringent,[31] tonic,[31] stimulant and mild aromatic. It contains isovaleric acid, salicylic acid, asparagin, sterols, flavonoids, bitters, tannins, and coumarins. The plant also has a long history as a powerful 'healing herb' used topically for wounds, cuts and abrasions. The genus name Achillea is derived from mythical Greek character, Achilles, who reportedly carried it with his army to treat battle wounds.
