Adam Michael has this to say “English grown yarrow oil is ink blue in colour and packed with chamazulene which is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.  The aroma is full of herbaceous floral character, reminiscent to smelling German chamomile with sweet butter qualities.

Yarrow is steeped in a wonderful history and apparently even the Greek warrior Achilles is said have used yarrow to stop his wounds from bleeding. Yarrow is produced by steam distillation of the flowering tops, the colour is ink blue and this material is of a pourable viscosity.

Useful for building green florals, herbaceous floral bouquets and developing creamy gourmand notes.”
