Yarrow is a long-stemmed member of the sunflower family found in the wild throughout the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It can be recognized by its highly segmented leaves (millefolium literally means “thousand leaves”), and the clusters of daisy-like white or lavender flowers at the top of the stalk.
Yarrow tincture supports oral health and digestive issues. Yarrow also supports wombs during heavy moon time bleeding. Helping to lighten heavy flow or regulate flows.
