This month Yarrow |Pom is in the essential oil spotlight. However, something else that has been on my mind lately is balance. Funnily enough, the two intertwine quite neatly, which is what sparked today’s blog post: Finding Balance – Inside and Out.
We chatted earlier this month about what makes Yarrow | Pom so special and some of the benefits of introducing it into your everyday life, but today I’m going to get a little more in-depth on some of the comprehensive benefits this oil has to offer.
First things first, the oil itself is blue.
This may not seem like much at first glance, although it is a unique characteristic among essential oils. Yarrow | Pom gets its blue hue from Chamazulene, a highly anti-oxidant component of this oil blend. In fact, it contains more anti-oxidants than both Vitamin C or E. Not only do anti-oxidants help to repair damaged cells, they also act as a restorative enforcer, protecting our cells from further damage as they work.
Your pocket power house.
Taken regularly, Yarrow | Pom is a great companion to making healthy choices for your body. The Beta-Pinene component in the blend helps to promote healthy sleep routines, making healthy choices for your diet and acts as a natural memory booster. This well balanced oil blend is essential for overall well being.
Yarrow itself is known for its healing properties.
Specifically by assisting our organs via enhanced circulation, metabolism, and digestion. It is known to help with high cholesterol levels, heart and tissue function and keeping our overall body chemistry in check.
A lesser known fact about this blend is that it contains BetaCaroPhyllene. This compound has similar healing and anti-inflammatory benefits as cannabinoids without any psychotropic effects to be concerned with.
Externally, Yarrow | Pom in known for its beneficial effects on skin tone and blemish control. It has soothing properties for irritated areas and is also a powerful anti-aging ally.
