Today I thought I’d share a quick recap of this past month’s Yarrow Herb Study inside of my Herb Folk herb study program.
In this study, we learned about several different actions and uses of nettle. We’ve also tried our hand at making, and hopefully using, several different yarrow preparations as well.
Get a quick peek of what we’ve covered in the Yarrow Herb Study below!
Inside the Herb Folk Yarrow Herb Study
Week 1 – Yarrow: An Aromatic
In week 1 of the Yarrow Herb Study, we looked at yarrow and its aromatic properties. Yarrow contains volatile oils to help it repel bugs, and it works to keep pesky bugs away from us as well!
We made an herbal bug spray that we can spritz on our clothes any time of the year to keep bugs at bay.
Week 2 – Yarrow: A Bitter
In week 2 of the Yarrow Herb Study, we looked at yarrow and its bitter qualities. Yarrow contains bitter properties that help to stimulate digestion, increase metabolism and detoxification, and help give us more energy.
We made an herbal bitters spritzer that we can use before meals to jumpstart the digestive process so we can better digest and then absorb the nutrients in the foods we eat.
Week 3 – Yarrow: A Tonic
In week 3 of the Yarrow Herb Study, we looked at yarrow and its cardiotonic properties. Yarrow helps to tone the entire cardiovascular system in a gentle, safe way.
We made a heart tonic tincture containing some well-known herbs that support heart health, including yarrow. This tincture can be used on a daily basis alongside a healthy lifestyle to keep the heart and blood vessels strong and healthy.
Week 4 – Yarrow: A Styptic
In week 4 of the Yarrow Herb Study, we looked at yarrow and styptic properties. Yarrow helps to slow bleeding when used externally.
We made a styptic powder that can be stored in your herbal first-aid kit and used when needed for cuts, scrapes, wounds, nosebleeds, and more!
