YARROW is a good cooling diaphoretic and febrifuge, which possesses astringent and antispasmodic properties. It is good for colds, flus and infectious diseases, particularly those in which fever and inflammation are high. It stops bleeding, both internally and externally. Yarrow reduces excessive menstrual bleeding and helps stop menstrual cramps. As such it is a good general herb for Pitta conditions, though its action is mild and mainly treats superficial conditions. Yarrow reduces excess Pitta, bile and inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and thereby helps strengthen the mucous membranes. It has some calmative, nervine action and promotes clarity and perception.

Yarrow combines well with peppermint as a diaphoretic; with sage as an astringent and nervine; with chamomile (a relative of yarrow), as a stomachic.

Externally, the juice or decoction can be used as a wash for wounds and sores-mainly for stopping bleeding and reducing inflammation.
