Yarrow (achillea millefolium) is a rich, sweet essential oil. It is high in azulene as is German Chamomile, which is what gives it its blue colour. Known for its anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, hypotensive effects, it is used for a wide variety of complaints including digestive problems, nervous tension, high blood pressure, and cuts and wounds.
For very painful stomach cramps, add 3 drops Yarrow, 3 drops Lavender High Altitude, and 2 drops Cardamom to 20ml carrier oil and massage onto stomach.
Safety: Possible sensitisation in individuals.
