Yarrow has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy. It has antiseptic, astringent, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is used to relieve pain associated with gynecologic conditions, digestive disorders, and other conditions. It relieves symptoms of arthritis, allergies, menstrual cycle and uterine disorders, sinus infections, coughs, bleeding ulcers, heavy menstrual periods, gall stones, blood in the urine, or bleeding from the bowels. It can help relieve simple infections like colds, flu and fevers.

Yarrow is often classified as a uterine tonic. Several studies have shown that yarrow can improve uterine tone, which may increase menstrual blood flow when it is irregular or scanty, and reduce uterine spasms, which reduces heavy flow in cases of abnormally heavy menstrual flow.

Externally Yarrow is used for hemorrhoids, bleeding, wounds, and infections.
