Yarrow: Herb Of Many Uses

Yarrow is a very unique herb because it can be used for many, many different ailments. For women, yarrow is a sort of “cure all”. It can be used for painful periods, because it is an anti inflammatory and an anti spasmodic herb. To best prevent painful periods, you should use yarrow as an herbal tea or a liquid extract in the week leading up to your period.

Yarrow is also used to slow down heavy menstrual periods. In fact, one of Yarrow’s very first uses was to stop hemorrhaging during childbirth and miscarriage. You can use Yarrow and other herbs to make a “anti hemorrhaging tea” to help calm heavy bleeding.

Yarrow for PCOS?

Some women even think that Yarrow can help with PCOS symptoms. That is because conditions like PCOS, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids are all considered “congestive” disorders. What is one of the things that Yarrow is best for curing? Pelvic congestion.

Experts say that using a hot or cold yarrow infused compress can improve pelvic circulation and help relieve your congested pelvic state. Another great way to use Yarrow for this purpose is to use the oil from fresh yarrow as a massage oil and massage it directly onto your stomach or pelvic region.

Yarrow To Start Periods

While yarrow can be used to calm heavy bleeding and help with heavy and painful periods, it can also, weirdly enough, be used to bring on periods. Some women believe that yarrow tea can stimulate the uterus enough to bring on menstrual periods. How does yarrow do this? It tones the muscles of the uterus, and it increases the muscular activity of the uterus to initiate periods where they weren’t happening before.

For women with irregular periods, or who haven’t had a period in a long time, a yarrow tea might be able to help. Of course, you should never, ever use yarrow if you think you might be pregnant.
