Yarrow is a humble bloom which contrary to its unassuming looks, is a powerful anti-inflammatory, containing the compound azulene. Similar to German Chamomile, Yarrow is a deep blue colour and carries a medicinal, green fragrance.
Try blending Yarrow in a preparation for eczema or inflamed skin. Its soothing properties when applied in a carrier oil may help to soothe and reduce inflammation.
Emotionally, Yarrow is a protective oil. Add to a relaxing bath during periods of stress and emotional turmoil.
