According to the European Medicines Agency (10) yarrow may be applied for loss of appetite, skin disorders and minor wounds, urinary tract and genital disorders, gastrointestinal disorders as well.

Here are some of the therapeutic benefits of yarrow oil as shared by some professionals:

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) has a number of names - Old Man’s Pepper, Soldier’s Herb, Knight’s Milfoil and a more interesting history of use in European, Native American and Chinese medicine. The ancients called it Herbe Militaris – the Military Herb – because it was often used to staunch bleeding and support wound healing. (8) Yarrow is one of several herbs that are called “amphoteric”. This term is used to describe a substance that can both increase and decrease the pH of a solution.

How to use yarrow for wound care (8)

Wound Powder – Dried, powdered yarrow can be applied after wounds are cleaned. Dried yarrow can also be used to make wound healing salves. (8)

(8) Here are some more benefits of yarrow essential oil:

1. Yarrow Tea (Hot) or Tincture for Fevers. It is said that “Fevers are our friend” which is an old wisdom in the herbal tradition. Now, modern medicine agrees with the same view. According to Dr. Janice Sullivan, a professor of pediatric clinical care and clinical pharmacology at the University of Louisville School of Medicine (The Washington Post) “Fever is the body’s normal response to infection — it’s a natural defense mechanism”. (8) According to The Herbal Academy this plant is a do-it-all for flu and fever! Yarrow is both an anti-inflammatory as well as being antimicrobial. It reduces pain, is an anti-catarrhal, relaxes circulation, and is a mild sedative, too.” (8)

2.  Yarrow for Digestive Support - the Cherokee, Gosiute, Iroquois, and Mohegan nations have used yarrow for digestive support because bitter, aromatic herbs help digestion by stimulating the production of bile and pancreatic juices. (Kruidwis) (8) When used internally, yarrow’s bitterness increases digestion as well as the absorption of nutrients by the body. The astringent gifts of yarrow make it very useful in stopping diarrhea. . . (8) The bitter properties of yarrow invigorate the liver and help it release bile while the antispasmodic gifts (an agent that relieves spasms or cramps) help in relieving cramps arising out of tensions, wind, colic, or nervous digestion.” (Sobo) (8)

3.  Yarrow for headaches - the anti-inflammatory properties of yarrow are thought to be helpful for dull, pounding headaches or migraines that seem to drag on. (8) Modern research has confirmed the historical use of yarrow to relieve pain caused by a broad range of conditions. Yarrow teas and tinctures contain salicylate-like derivatives such as stigmasterol and beta-sitosterol that reduce the inflammatory process, which may accelerate healing. (8) These compounds stop the formation of enzymes necessary for a series of chemical reactions that cause inflammation and pain. (8) Yarrow also contains compound designated sesquiterpene lactones, which reduce the action of pain-provoking hormones, the prostaglandins.” (Balch) (8)

4.Cardiovascular Support - because it’s an astringent, yarrow is often used to tone veins, which can be helpful for varicose veins and/or hemorrhoids. The blood moving (vasodilation), cytoprotectant and anti-oxidant properties of yarrow leaves and flowers also make it supportive of overall heart health. (8)

5. Yarrow tea (Cold) for Urinary Support - yarrow is diuretic, and is therefore a wonderful “carrier” to include with urinary antimicrobial herbs for UTIs and other urinary issues to make sure those herbs get to the urinary system. More on natural remedies for UTI’s here. (8)

6. Yarrow Tea for Postpartum and Menstrual Support - Women could help themselves if they just took yarrow tea from time to time!” says Bavarian priest and herbalist Father Sebastian Kneipp (Treben) (8)

7. Yarrow for Skin and Hair - Yarrow leaf facial steams can be helpful for clogged pores and yarrow tea as a hair rinse for dry or itchy scalps. (8)

8. Herbalist Rosalee de la Foret (8) recommends the following adult doses:

Yarrow tea: 1tsp/8ounces of water steeped 30 minutes, up to 3-9g/day

Fresh yarrow plant tincture of 1:2 ratio in 95% alcohol, 2-5mL/day

Dry yarrow plant tincture of 1:5 ratio in 40% alcohol, 2-5mL/day

How to Make Yarrow Tea - add 1 teaspoon of dried yarrow flower to one cup of boiling water. Cover and steep for 30 minutes, then strain and serve. Mix 1 ounce dried yarrow (by weight) with 5 ounces (by volume) of 80 proof or higher alcohol and allow it to infuse for six to eight weeks. Strain and store in a dark glass dropper bottle. (8)

Yarrow Safety and Contraindications

Yarrow is in the aster (ragweed) family, so use cautiously if you have a known allergy. Some people also have a skin allergy to the sesquiterpene lactones, so start with a little to make sure you don’t have any issues. (8)

Is yarrow safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding? Yarrow is a uterine stimulant and emmenagogue and should not be used internally during pregnancy. Yarrow has also not been proven safe for breastfeeding. (8)
