My First Exposure to Nature’s Medicine
Would you believe that only a decade ago I thought that natural medicine was crazy? I had never been exposed to it and it sounded like….well, kooky and too good to be true. My now husband grew up in a very natural-minded home. It wasn’t that I was against natural stuff – I just didn’t know anything about living a healthy life. I thought that I was healthy because I worked out and ate green beans every once in awhile. Boy, was I wrong.
My now husband shared Yarrow with me. It was the first natural medicine I had ever really seen work. My in-laws had Yarrow growing out in the yard. Whenever someone got hurt and needed support, they’d go clip some leaves, steep them, and apply topically as needed. It was amazing to watch bruising and other irritations disappear.
A few years later, my journey with essential oils started. Back then, doTERRA did not have Yarrow essential oil. Every year at convention I crossed my fingers in hope that this would be the year that doTERRA came out with beloved yarrow. Well this year, my wishing worked! We now have Yarrow!!
So say Hello to your new favorite essential oil. We have used almost 30 mL of this amazing blend in only 3 months! It’s our new go-to oil!
Yarrow Essential Oil
Yarrow|Pom is an expertly crafted proprietary blend of Yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate seed oil designed to be your go-to for a true inside-out approach to aging, vitality, overall wellness, and, quite frankly, how to get that glow. Yarrow is a very thick essential oil. It was imperative to have a blend – POM + Essential Oil. There’s a reason doTERRA made this oil available this way.
This synergistic and first-of-its-kind blend naturally up-regulates the body’s protective transcription factors while activating skin-protecting proteins (inhibiting the enzymes that breakdown elasticity and collagen) with the added benefit of promoting collagen production.* Additionally, this active botanical powerhouse can be applied topically to revitalize aging skin. I call it Plastic Surgery in a bottle.
Yarrow|POM can be taken internally to support a healthy inflammatory response at the source and promotes healthy metabolic function.*
With main chemical components punicic acid (an omega 5), antioxidants, β-caryophyllene, and chamazulene, this vegan-friendly active botanical duo supports cellular, immune, and nervous system function and rejuvenation when taken internally.*
You can read more about the awesome power of beta caryophyllene on my Copaiba essential oil post.
