I absolutely love my yarrow in our garden and my jones for Yarrow Essential Oil is just as obsessive. Yarrow speaks to me, not least for it's divinely grounding vibe that is as etheral as it is spiritual.  

Yarrow is amphoteric, which means it can have opposite healing traits. 

The aroma is full of herbaceous floral character, reminiscent to smelling German chamomile with sweet butter qualities. 

Yarrow has a long history as a medicinal herb, which according to legend goes back to Achilles, who used it to heal wounds inflicted by the sword during the wars with Troy. 

Yarrow does have a shadow-side, with it's friendship with the Abrahamic Devil resulting in the nicknames “devil’s nettle” and “bad man’s plaything.” 

Yarrow is used to treat fever, and it reduces symptoms of the common cold and hay fever.
  • Try  - Add 20 drops of Yarrow essential oil in a bath as part of a detoxifying ritual - Yarrow is an antiseptic and diuretic.
  • Yarrow essential oil blends well with Angelica, Cedarwood, Pine, Myrrh, Frankincense, and Chamomile.
Precautions - Yarrow contains Thujone which has a stimulating effect on uterine contractions, so is best avoided in pregnancy; prolonged use externally can, in some people, cause allergic rashes and make the skin ultra-sensitive to sunlight; large doses can cause headaches.
Do not use Yarrow with sedatives, diruretics, blood pressure drugs or blood thinners.

My obsession with all things natural and magical is not a new thing.  I love essential oils, resins and oil infusions.  If you're interested in checking out my collection of essential oils and essential oil blends, you are more than welcome.  Please let me know if you are looking for something in particular - that's what I'm here for!   If you're a lover of cards we stock The Essential Oil Healing Deck by Michelle Schoffro Cook.  It's a wonderful reference to own.
