Yarrow essential oil
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
Dogs and Horse often select Yarrow when presenting with the following symptoms:
- High blood pressure
- Insect bites
- Trauma - emotional release
- Urinary and Kidney issues
Our yarrow comes directly from the farmer/producer and is inky blue unlike the aromatherapy essential oil which has had the chamazulene removed and thus ineffective for this work.
Yarrow contains high levels of the anti-inflammatory constituent called chamazulene which gives it it's characteristically inky-blue colour. As well as being an effective anti-inflammatory it has also been seen to inhibit microbial action in laboratory conditions.
In the yard it is useful for urinary and kidney infections (along with Sandalwood) and for topical use on wounds and insect bites when selected.
When selected Yarrow also has the ability to release the emotional element from wounds and injuries.
Similar to Aloe vera, Yarrow essential oil will absorb into the skin until the required amount has been applied. When the area has absorbed as much as it needs the oil will remain on the surface.
