Details Ingredients & Additional Information
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to the Northern Hemisphere. In New Mexico and southern Colorado, it is called plumajillo, or "little feather", for the shape of the leaves. In antiquity, yarrow was known as herbal militaris, for its use in staunching the flow of blood from wounds. Other common names for this species include common yarrow, gordaldo, nosebleed plant, old man's pepper, devil's nettle, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier's woundwort, thousand-leaf (as its binomial name affirms), and thousand-seal. The largest producing countries of Yarrow include Bosnia, France, Hungary and the USA.

Both blue and green yarrow essential oils are distilled from achillea millefolium. The obvious difference between these two oils is the color. During the steam distillation of the herb, a compound called matricine, is converted to azulene or chamazulene. This gives the blue yarrow oil its distinctive blue color. Azulene and chamazulene are not present in the actual plant. It is only through the application of heat and the process of steam distillation that azulene and chamazulene develop.
Green yarrow does not contain as high a percentage of azulene and chamazulene as does the blue yarrow. The higher percentage of these components in blue yarrow is the result of the higher temperature and the length of time that it is distilled.

Yarrow has a dry, smooth, and herbal aroma. Yarrow blends with bay, black pepper, bergamot, cedarwood, chamomile, clary sage, cypress, grapefruit, lavender, neroli, oakmoss, pine, valerian, vetiver, and ylang ylang.
