About Yarrow Essential Oil
Yarrow is also known as milfoil, a reference to its feathery appearance from fern-like feathery leaves. It is a perennial herb with a simple stem that can grow up to one meter (3 feet) in height, bearing numerous pale pink flower heads. Yarrow has a long history as a medicinal herb, which goes back to the legend of Achilles who used it for wounds inflicted during the Trojan War. It is often used in cosmetics for dry skin.

Interesting Yarrow Essential Oil Information
Yarrow Essential Oil is dark blue in color and is similar in hue to that of German Chamomile Essential Oil due to its chamazulene content. Chamazulene is a sesquiterpene that exhibits anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. It is sometimes known as Blue Yarrow Essential Oil.
Aromatically, Yarrow Essential Oil is a bit dull to me, but I don’t find it to be unpleasant whatsoever. It’s somewhat similar in aroma to Blue Tansy Essential Oil, but it’s not as aromatically sweet. Yarrow Essential Oil blends well aromatically with most other essential oils.
Emotionally, I find Yarrow Essential Oil to be a helpful oil to work with when doing introspection and self study. Working quietly with Yarrow Oil can encourage me to take an objective look within without fear of what I may discover about myself. I’ve found yarrow to be a beautiful essential oil to work with for this purpose, and I also love including it within my personal meditation practice.
