Achillea is commonly known as Sneezewort or Yarrow. The botanical name is Achillea ptarmica. Achillea is named for the Greek mythological hero who found healing qualities in plants. Ptarmica is from the Greek ptario which means to sneeze. When the foliage is crushed it has a fragrance which can cause sneezing. In fact, dried leaves were used to make sneezing powder.
