Because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, Yarrow is wonderful for calming and soothing irritated or damaged skin, acne, burns, and dermal infection. Yarrow has been considered the first choice of hydrosols for relieving the itching and irritation of eczema and psoriasis and may even help with reducing rheumatic pain.
Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy, describes Yarrow Hydrosol as "a mild antibacterial and antiseptic, it helps with problem skin, acneic conditions, and dermal infections, and as an anti-inflammatory it helps heal damage from sun and wind."
Energetically, Yarrow acts as a guardian and assists the deep work associated with the wounded healer/leader archetype as well as cultivating healthy boundaries and self-trust.

My current favorite hydrosol! My dry and sensitive skin loves this. I ran out of it for a week and really noticed its absence. I never used hydrosols until I started using wild grace products and they’re now an integral part of my skincare routine. Thank you, Katie, for these amazing products!
