Containing anti-inflammatory and antiseptic oils as well as astringent tannins, yarrow is very useful as a medicinal herb. Resins present in yarrow possess astringent properties, while the silica helps in repairing damaged or worn out tissues in the body. These properties make it a versatile remedy which, when applied externally, is useful in curing cuts and wounds, burns and ulcers as well as swollen and irritating (inflammatory) skin. When taken internally, yarrow invigorates appetite, increases digestion as well as absorption of nutrients by the body, and acts as a natural antibiotic for various illnesses.
