Yarrow contains several anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving constituents, such as azulene and salicylic acid, and is very effective in the treatment of wounds.
Yarrow is amphoteric, which means it can have opposite healing traits. Yarrow is astringent, and in most cases, it can stop bleeding, in other cases, it can move blood. Yarrow has been traditionally used to treat fevers, colds, winter illnesses and also assists the healing of inflammation, circulation and muscle aches; specifically for cuts, bruises, blood blisters, scrapes and deep wounds (even to the bone). Yarrow is also a good medicine for certain types of female menstrual ailments, such as cysts and regulating menstrual flow.
Yarrow is known for its choleretic, antibacterial, astringent, and antispasmodic, diaphoretic, antipyretic, hypotensive properties, as well as being a digestive stimulant and menstrual regulator.

It is also thought to improve circulation and decrease high blood pressure. Additionally, Yarrow has often been used to reduce fevers.
