Everything she provides is organic, toxic free, and life-sustaining. As you emote with her, you will find longevity and peace which surpasses understanding.
I often take my daughters on nature walks where I take the time to identify herbals that can nourish and heal their bodies. My little ladybugs have learned so much and today, I want to share one particular herb we just harvested with you. It is called Yarrow. Yarrow, or Achillea millefolium, has been used by our ancestors for centuries. It was used primarily as medicine which can aid in the recovery of wounds and pain. However, it has many different benefits.
Yarrow’s Many Benefits
1. Yarrow is antimicrobial which can kill germs. In earlier times it was used as a wound wash.
2. Yarrow is a pain reliever. Our ancestors chewed it to relieve tooth pain because it contains compounds that can alleviate pain.
3. Yarrow was used for colds and flu because it induces sweating. When you sweat, you remove toxins from your temple. One recipe in particular calls for yarrow, peppermint, ginger, and elderflower.
4. Yarrow strengthens blood vessels and veins which can improve your circulation. It also can effectively move congested blood which helps tone the liver.
5. Yarrow can improve your digestion by alleviating gas, bloating, and colic. I personally combine it with chamomile and use it in tea.
6. I highly recommend this herb for my SiStars as it can soothe menstrual issues such as heavy cramping and it helps with reproductive disorders. Your cramps and other menstrual complaints can be alleviated organically by drinking yarrow tea. You can also make an oil infusion from dried yarrow and a carrier oil such as sweet almond or grapeseed oil.
7. Yarrow can heal the urinary tract by balancing the pH while alleviating pain and itching. Imbalances in your pH levels can cause discomfort. You can make a tea or use the dried herb in a sitz bath. Simply dry the herb and soak in it when you are suffering from a urinary tract infection.
8. Yarrow is good for minor skin irritations as it has antimicrobial properties. You can dab a cotton ball in yarrow tea and apply it to your face. It assists in healing acne and stops itching caused by bug bites.
