Blue yarrow is a rare essential oil that has a striking blue color. The scent is both sweet and herbaceous. It is considered to act as an anti-inflammatory agent. This essential oil is a must-have for your essential oil collection.
Our organic Blue Yarrow has a diffusive aroma that is sweet, fresh, and green-herbaceous with a woody and somewhat camphoraceous note that becomes sweeter in the dry down. When Achillea millefolium is distilled, one of the essential oil constituents, matricin (a sesquiterpene1), decomposes into chamazulene with its deep vivid blue color as a result of the heat and pressure of distillation. Chamazulene is one of the primary components of our organic Blue Yarrow and boasts healthy, beneficial properties; other notable constituents are ß-pinene+sabinene, ß-caryophyllene, germacrene D, 1-terpinen-4-ol, 1,8 cineole, and smaller amounts of many others.
It is said that the Yarrow herb is named after Achilles, a figure in Greek mythology who used the herb to treat the wounds of soldiers he led in the Trojan War. He died from a fatal wound to his heel, the only vulnerable part of his body. That may explain why the Achilles tendon and the Latin binomial for Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, share his name. Blue Yarrow essential oil is very effective in aromatherapy applications and lends an intriguing note in natural perfumery when used in trace amounts.
Blue yarrow essential oil essential oil is a wonderfully fragrant addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, incense, candles, and aromatherapy.
