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.”
- 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.
