Floral Accent - Green

Your skin will thank you when you mist it with yarrow hydrosol morning and evening. Yarrow got its Latin name from the mythical Greek hero Achilles who is said to have used the herb to heal the spear wound of one of his soldiers during the Trojan War. That healing power has continued to be used for centuries to treat wounds and skin irritations, bringing cooling, soothing relief. Yarrow has also been recommended for use in sitz baths to lessen the pain and swelling of hemorrhoids, menstrual cramps, and endometriosis. It’s a good choice for animals with skin or digestive conditions—they like the smell (humans may not)!
