Yarrow has a herbaceous yet sweet scent, and has historically been used in ancient medicine for a large number of treatments. It is said that the Greek warrior Achilles sent his troops into battle carrying dried yarrow flowers to use to promote clotting of wounds obtained during battle. In Ancient Chinese cultures the yarrow plant is believed to balance yin and yang energies, so the scent is often used today to promote feelings of balance in the users energy and emotions. Our yarrow for this year’s product was sourced from a gravel pit near Birch River Manitoba where it grows wild. Next year our yarrow products will be subsidized with cultivated plant material as well as the wild-crafted yarrow from our local natural surroundings.
