Yarrow extract can be used in hair skin and nails.
Yarrow’s popularity in skin care is due to its ability to soothe and repair damaged skin, reduce inflammation and redness, and tighten and tone the skin.
One of the key active components in yarrow is achilleine, which has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. This makes yarrow an excellent choice if you suffer sensitive, irritated, or inflamed skin. In addition, yarrow is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, which help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and prevent the signs of ageing.
Organic Yarrow extract has also been used in wound healing treatments due to its natural anti-inflammatory and soothing effects. This means organic yarrow is great for treatments focusing on eczema, rosacea, acne, sunburns, bug bites, and stressed skin.
Organic Yarrow is also excellent for the hair!
Yarrow oil has natural astringent properties that will help to tighten the pores on your scalp, meaning that the hair follicles are gripped more tightly and helping to slow or ultimately prevent hair loss.
On top of that, the rich linalool and 1,8-cineole content in the yarrow oil will penetrate your scalp deeply and allow you to nourish your hair from the roots, making sure that they’re healthier for longer.
Incorporating Organic Yarrow Oil into your hair care products has been said to help sooth scalp inflammation, encourage hair growth, remove scalp build-up and could even help prevent hair loss. You can add our Organic Yarrow Oil Extract directly into your shampoo or conditioner formulas, and you could incorporate it into a hair and scalp mask.

Incorporating a Hair and Scalp Mask into your line is simple! Your base is bentonite clay then you add your oil cleansers such as yarrow oil extract, and any other blends of your choice castor oil, argan oil etc.
