Product Abstract: Yarrow is also known as milfoil, a reference to its feathery appearance from fern-like feathery leaves. It is a perennial herb with a simple stem that can grow up to one meter (3 feet) in height, bearing numerous pale pink flower heads. Yarrow has a long history as a medicinal herb, which goes back to the legend of Achilles who used it for wounds inflicted during the Trojan War. It is often used in cosmetics for dry skin.
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: This is a very strong scent, somewhat camphorous to me but in a lotion it's far more pleasant. I added it into a healing salve and my family members like it and say it helps with healing quicker.

Rating: Very unique & different essential oil than I have ever used or expected in all of my years of purchasing essential oils of many varieties. I ordered the 1/6 oz size of this essential oil as a first try sample. When I received it & opened it up, the dark blue color of this oil freaked me out a little much because I have never had an essential oil in my collection that was so dark Blue in color almost like Blue food dye had been added to it. I logged on my computer and came straight to New Directions Aromatics to read the full description on this Yarrow Essential oil again due to the dark Blue color of it.
I was at peace once I read about the color of it which stated: "Pale greenish blue to dark blue clear liquid." I just wasn't sure or up to date on that information about the Yarrow Essential Oil until I visited here again & read over the entire info about it. The color of it wireds me a little still & wish that it was not so dark Blue to Turquoise in color as for this is going to be used on my face once diluted for skin problems I have.
Scent wise, this Yarrow Oil smells a lot like Spanish Sage & Sage Dalmatian Essential Oil but with more camphorous notes than Sage Oil which could be a good thing as for possibly having some skin cooling benefits as well. There is a 45% chance that I may buy this essential oil again & in a bigger size too once I run out of it.

Rating: Excellent smell, feel, and color! It smells like a wet earthy field (in the best way). Effective for psoriasis blends easily, and adds a beautiful unusal tone to massage oils.
