  • Works as a decongestant. Yarrow has a drying effect that may be effective against mucus formation caused by coughs and sinus infections.
  • Alleviates allergies caused by dust, mold, pollen and dander.
  • May be effective against skin conditions, such as eczema. Not only can it help stop wounds from bleeding, but it can be used as first-aid for burns and ulcers.
  • Helps stop nosebleeds.
  • Relieves pain from arthritis and rheumatism. It has anti-inflammatory properties that may alleviate pain brought on by these conditions.
