Legend has it that Achilles sprouted from the rust that fell to the ground from Achilles' spear to heal many of his comrades in the Trojan War. A legend says that when Achilles was wounded in the heel by the poisoned arrow of Paris, the goddess Aphrodite cried and advised him to take Achilles which is the best herb for wounds. From this myth Achilles has taken her name as well as other names such as "Aphrodite's Tear", "Aphrodite's smile".
For many years it was used as an invigorating and bitter tonic and all kinds of bitter alcoholic beverages (bitters) were made from it. Achilles has been considered an effective healer since ancient times
The plant pigments and alkaloids (Achilles) contained in Achilles have the ability to "drop" the pressure and for this reason, the herb is recommended in cases of hypertension.
