Yarrow Hydrosol

Aromatically, I prefer the aroma of Yarrow Essential Oil to that of Yarrow Hydrosol. Like the essential oil, it is woody and herbaceous, but I find that it is much sharper in aroma.

Botanical Name: Achillea millefolium

Aromatic Strength: Medium

Shelf Life: Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Len and Shirley Price report that the Yarrow Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 50-64% eucalypton, 10-19% alcohols, 17-19% aldehydes, 7-13% ketones and possesses the following properties: "analgesic, anticoagulant, antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, antiviral, bactericidal, calming, cicatrizant, circulatory (hypotensor), decongestant, digestive, expectorant, febrifuge, lipolytic, mucolytic, sedative, stimulating, tonic." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 95.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Yarrow Hydrosol is useful for acne, damaged skin, cellulite, spiritual healing and for auric work. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 171.]

Safety Information: Read AromaWeb's Hydrosol Safety Guidelines.
