Yarrow helps to improve circulation, which can aid in the treatment of some headaches. Steep 2 teaspoons in one cup of hot water six minutes, take as needed.

Taken as a tea, Yarrow relaxes the peripheral blood vessels and may lower blood pressure. Steep 1 tsp. in one cup of hot water for six minutes. Take three to four times daily.

If taken freely with Mullein and Horehound at the beginning of a cold, can ease congestion. Steep 1 tsp. dried Yarrow, 2 tsp. dried Mullein and 1/2 tsp. dried Horehound per cup of hot water. Drink a cupful every two to three hours.

The plant is useful for breaking dry fevers. Steep 2 tsp. in one cup of hot water for six minutes. Sip slowly. The best way to bring on copious sweating is to sit in a tub of hot water or a sauna while sipping the tea. Yarrow’s diaphoretic properties also help open the pores and aid in the elimination of waste material.

Since Yarrow contains several anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving constituents it is very effective for wounds. Yarrow Antiseptic Salve makes an excellent dressing for all types of wounds.

Yarrow has been very effectively used during menopausal years, reducing the incidence of "hot flashes" and supporting the transition. Steep 1 tsp. in one cup hot water for ten minutes. Take hot several times daily. Two to three cups of Yarrow tea will decrease menstruation. Steep 1 tsp. in one cup of hot water for five minutes, sip slowly.

Yarrow makes an excellent facial steam for problem skin. Put a handful of dried Yarrow leaves and flowers in a small basin. Pour one quart of boiling water over the dried herb. Lean the head over the bowl, draping the head and bowl with a large towel to make a facial steam tent. Steam face for ten minutes, then rinse skin with fresh cold water. For toning oily skin, infuse yarrow flowers in witch hazel for 3 weeks and strain. A strong tea of Yarrow also makes an excellent hair rinse.

Ingredients: Dried Yarrow flower (Achillea sp.) wild harvested in Idaho.
