Yarrow is a truly great healing oil! Applied topically to a cut, yarrow will pull the edges together and help the cut to heal almost miraculously. Yarrow's antiseptic properties are strong enough to prevent infection, no matter how dirty or contaminated conditions were at the time of the injury. Yarrow, known for centuries as an herb to stop bleeding, is even more effective in the concentrated essential oil form. Just as yarrow oil pulls together the edges of a deep wound, yarrow pulls together and heals the damaged places in our energy.
Which Yarrow should I choose?
Many essential oil companies carry more than one yarrow essential oil. A yarrow oil which has a pale green color like Yarrow Green or Yarrow Green USA seems to be slightly stronger in hormone balancing properties than a deeper blue one like Yarrow Blue. Yarrow Yellow is a particularly good febrifuge (reduces fever and produces a sweat). Deeper blue yarrow oils have an advantage as an astringent and in pulling the edges of wounds together. The blue one is the one sought after most frequently as a single oil.
