Yarrow from Aromatics

Yarrow

Achillea millefolium

Description

This oil is a fantastic anti-inflammatory agent and is considered to be one of the most important oils to have in an essential oil collection! 

Our Yarrow essential oil comes from England and is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the yarrow plant. The leaves and miniature daisy like flowers on this perennial produce a beautiful, deep blue oil.  

Yarrow is a versatile essential oil with numerous therapeutic applications.

Yarrow is a good choice when looking to relieve headaches and nerve pain (like sciatica).

It is also a great oil for skin, as Yarrow is cooling, and helps to reduce swelling and muscle spasms. For a more intensive skin issue, you can blend it with Helichrysum and Rock Rose for a more comprehensive healing blend.

Yarrow is an excellent oil for the digestive system; many aromatherapists have found it useful in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, and gas.

Yarrow is also a perfect oil to add to blends for cold or flu. It can reduce congestion and ease aches and pains associated with the cold or flu. It is beneficial when looking to reduce a fever.

Many women appreciate Yarrow when looking to reduce pain associated with menstruation. Aromatherapists often use this oil in blends formulated to assist in relieving hot flashes.
