“Strongly aromatic but not particularly pleasant; has been described as puppy breath.” Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: the Next Aromatherapy.
Yarrow hydrosol has a not too pleasant aroma but it’s benefits make up for it. Yarrow hydrosol is a cleansing and astringent hydrosol and many consider it to be the first choice of hydrosols for relieving the itching and irritation of eczema and psoriasis. It can be used to cool fevers and ease aches and pains. As an anti-inflammatory it can be used to aid with varicose veins, hemorrhoids or painful menstrual cramps. It can help with problem skin such as acne and helps to heal skin damage from sun and wind. Yarrow hydrosol can be used on wounds to help stop the bleeding.
According to Suzanne Catty (Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy), Yarrow hydrosol is used as a digestive aid – helping with upset tummies, heartburn and indigestion. It is an anti-spasmodic, a great balancer, a mild diuretic and a mild anti-inflammatory.
Catty goes on to say, “Yarrow is a very effective water for use on animals, as they like the smell. Skin problems and digestive issues will benefit particularly”
Rheumatic and joint pains can be eased by a compress soaked in Yarrow hydrosol. Yarrow is very calming. It may provide sleep for insomniacs and is great for dogs with red, dry, itchy skin.
Yarrow Hydrosol can be found in the TLC Skincare Kit.
