English Yarrow: The vivid blue of Yarrow essential oil is attributed to its exceptionally high levels of azulene - a powerful anti-inflammatory which helps placate redness and skin irritation. In Homer's Iliad, legendary warrior Achilles uses yarrow to treat the wounds of his fallen comrades as its constituents significantly accelerate the healing of cuts and bruises. The power of this oil in its ability to repair and rejuvenate damaged skin cells cannot be over estimated.
