Yarrow Essential Oil - Wild Harvested Corsica
Fruity-herbaceous and sky blue, yarrow has a host of powerful attributes: a powerful purifier, healing to the skin and relaxing to the mind.
About Yarrow Essential Oil
Floracopeia's Corsican yarrow, also known as Ligurian Yarrow, has an extensive array of aromatherapeutic properties, the most important of which may be its ability to purify in its applications. An aromatherapist will think of yarrow in a similar manner to chamomile. It is healing, soothing, relaxing and very useful. It is said that yarrow essential oil has a relaxing effect on muscles, nerves, belly and breath. Tonifying to the entire body when topically applied, yarrow's astringent and emollient qualities make it useful in promoting smooth skin on the face, body, upper and lower legs, and anywhere the skin had been previously stressed to create imperfections in texture. Yarrow as an herb has been used extensively and traditionally to support wound healing. Yarrow's calming effect extends to the mind, where it can have a de-stressing effect which can gently overcome feelings of anxiousness, restlessness or trouble sleeping.
Yarrow Oil Profile
The flowering tops of our Corsican Yarrow are harvested from their natural environment in June when the flowers are at the height of aromatic potency.
