Hopefully, once you read this post, you'll wonder: Why don't we hear more about Yarrow? Or even . . . Why have I never heard of Yarrow?
Yarrow is native to Europe and is a known wound healer and ointments/salves/balms made with this herb have been used for centuries in Scotland and the UK for wounds and, as such, helps to heal ulcers as well. Yarrow is also known to help regulate periods, help with digestion and ~ adding just a ts to Baby's bottle or squirted into Baby's mouth with a dropper ~ can help with colic.
An anti-inflammatory, it can also help with hay fever, allergy symptoms, lowers blood pressure and gives relief for poor circulation and varicose veins.
It is a wonderful herb for women ~ it's wound healing properties allow it to ease menstrual pain and is a must for women with irregular periods and heavy bleeding.
And as if those uses are not enough, Yarrow also reduces fever and is an ingredient in my Ulcer Tea because it eases and helps heal most digestive disorders and ulcers.
Yarrow is one of those Bitter Herbs that should be in everyone's Homemade Natural First Aid Kit, in one form or another ~ whether herbs for tea, tincture, balm/salve or essential oil.
