INCI Name: Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow) Distillate Water
Yarrow Hydrosol can be used directly on the skin, and is said to have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects in homeopathic circles. Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy, recommends using Yarrow Hydrosol as a compress for varicose veins. Catty also says it can help stabilize body fluids by helping to get rid of excess fluids and that it helps to stop bleeding and cleanse wounds, and can sooth sun and wind damaged skin.
Many consider Yarrow as the first choice of hydrosols for relieving the itching and irritation of eczema and psoriasis. Emotionally and energetically, Yarrow Hydrosol is calming and can help promote sleep for those with insomnia. Due to its distinctive aroma, it can be combined with Roman Chamomile Hydrosol or Lavender Hydrosol for a synergistic and aromatically pleasant blend.
