Yarrow is an herb/vegetable that has been used through out history for a multitude of health purposes and also as a culinary herb to enhance certain dishes. Some of it’s most pronounced uses are for reducing systemic inflammation, digestive support, a sedative to relieve sleep disorders and anxiousness, skin wound healing, and other common issues. Yarrow is a natural antiseptic and has been used to prevent wounds from becoming infected and to help heal skin burns/scars.
Yarrow contains compounds called flavonoids and sesquiterpene lactones which are potent anti-inflammatories and help to sooth inflammation through out the body, especially in the digestive tract. This can be especially useful and important for the female reproductive tract and has been shown to aid in the stimulation of bleeding when menstrual cycles have been irregular. There are many more documented benefits of this sacred plant and much more will probably be unearthed as research continues.
