Magical Uses

When worn, Yarrow protects the wearer and when held in the hand, it stops all fear and grants courage. 


A bunch of dried Yarrow, hung over the bed, or Yarrow used in wedding decorations, ensures a love lasting at least seven years. Yarrow is also used in love spells. 


Carrying Yarrow not only brings love but also attracts friends and distant relations you wish to contact. It draws the attention of those you most want to see. 


The flowers are made into an infusion and the resulting tea is drunk to improve psychic powers. 


Washing the head with a Yarrow infusion will prevent baldness but will not cure it if it has already begun. 


Yarrow is also used to exorcise evil and negativity from a person, place or thing.
