Yarrow

A flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to the Northern Hemisphere. In New Mexico and southern Colorado, it is called plumajillo, or "little feather", for the shape of the leaves.

In antiquity, yarrow was known as herbal militaris, for its use in staunching the flow of blood from wounds.

Other common names for this species include common yarrow, gordaldo, nosebleed plant, old man's pepper, devil's nettle, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier's woundwort, thousand-leaf (as its binomial name affirms), and thousand-seal.

In the Middle Ages, yarrow was part of a herbal mixture known as gruit used in the flavouring of beer prior to the use of hops.

Bisto

A well-known brand of traditional British foods in the United Kingdom, most famous for its gravy products.

The very first Bisto product, in 1908, was a meat-flavoured gravy powder, which rapidly became a bestseller in the UK. It was added to gravies to give a richer taste and aroma.

Invented by Messrs Roberts & Patterson, it was named "Bisto" because it "Browns, Seasons and Thickens in One".

Along with the batter, it normally includes bean sprouts, shredded pumpkin and very small shrimps, shells and all.

It is commonly dipped in a combination of vinegar and chilli.

Yarrow root- Flowering plant native to europe that is used medicinally for colds and flu etc.
Can't be taken by pregnant women since it ripens the cervix and can cause miscarriages.
