Yarrow is one of my favorite medicinal herbs. For a period of my life, I thought if I ever had a child, I would name him or her Yarrow after this beautiful, wild, white flowered plant. I had a baby and named him Jai but my love for Yarrow is endless. What a powerful herb with so much to offer. Yarrow is well known for helping to stop bleeding, but do you know that this plant's intelligence also has the ability to speed up bleeding as well, for example, during a menstrual cycle that is slow going. That's right, Yarrow can slow down a heavy flow or speed up your period and bring more blood if that's what is needed, regulating your cycle. It also works as a powerful ally for a cold/flu as it can cut healing time in half and energetically, it is a great protector. Yarrow wards off negative energy. I had a client come to see me recently and I told her Yarrow wanted to work with her. She asked me if I thought she needed to take Yarrow medicine. I thought about it for a moment and then said no, that she just needed to plant it in her garden outside her home. I told her I'd give her a Yarrow plant the next time she came over. A few days later, her and her husband were fighting and it was intense enough for her to cancel and postpone a bodywork session with my husband. I thought of her and her Yarrow plant that she wasn't yet coming to take home. A few days later, I told her to come get her sacred protector.
