Yarrow essential oil is used for skin problems such as acne, eczema, oily skin, and is reputed to help reduce scarring. Our Yarrow essential oil has a gorgeous blue color and has similar properties to Blue Tansy and German (Blue) Chamomile. As with those oils, the blue color occurs during the distillation process. And, like Blue Chamomile and Blue Tansy oil, Yarrow essential oil has potent anti-inflammatory action, making it a useful oil for inflammatory skin conditions.
