(Achillea millefolium) Do not take if pregnant. May cause skin allergies or dermatitis.

Thousand Seal, Wound Wort, Yarroway, Yerw. Gender: Feminine. Planet: Venus. Element: Water. Powers: Courage, Love, Psychic Powers, Exorcism.
Magical Uses: When worn, yarrow protects the wearer, and when held in the hand, it
stops all fear and grants courage. A bunch of dried yarrow hung over the
bed or yarrow used in wedding decorations
ensures a love lasting at least seven years.
Yarrow is also used in love spells. Carrying yarrow not only brings love
but it also attracts friends and distant relations you wish to contact. It draws the
attention of those you most want to see. The flowers are made into an infusion
and the resulting tea is drunk to improve
psychic powers. Washing the head with a yarrow infusion will prevent baldness but won’t cure it
if it has already begun. Yarrow is also used to exorcise evil and
negativity from a person, place or thing.

“You alright with me smoking right now?” Michael asked, reaching for the shoebox he kept his stuff in. You nodded, sitting on the couch in his basement as he opened the box, pulling out a pipe you didn’t recognize.
Michael didn’t smoke around you a lot, but when he did he always made sure you were okay with it, since he knew you’d never smoked.
“Wanna smoke?” He asked, right on cue. Offering you some, if anything just to be polite. You opened your mouth, the decline on the tip of your tongue when you reconsidered it.
