LIVING LIBATIONS - Yarrow Essential Oil

Yarrow Essential Oil is a botanical blessing steam-distilled from the flowering tops of wild yarrow. This ancient plant yields a cooling compound called chamazulene, which is a dream for calming areas and emotions that have become inflamed. This tried and true blue oil is so potent, legend has it that Achilles doused himself in Yarrow oil in order to protect himself from his enemies’ arrows. The only part of his body not protected by Yarrow was… his Achilles’ heel! Hence the genus Latin name Achillea referring to Achilles, and millefolium which means “a thousand leaves”.

Living Libations Yarrow Essential Oil is distilled from the white and wild tiny petals of the Yarrow flower that grows wild in Canada. Used extensively by Native Americans in herbal medicine applications, Yarrow used to be consumed to lower fevers and to cure the symptoms of colds and respiratory infections. Chewing the roots, leaves and petals of this plant helped ease digestion, and the mashed pulp of yarrow was an effective treatment for bruises, scrapes, cuts, wounds, and insect bites.

Yarrow is a true inky-blue oil opulent in soothing sesquiterpenes thanks to a compound known as chamazulene, traditionally known for its calming and cooling properties.
