Yarrow|Pom is one of doTERRA’s newly released essential oils, and it has some incredibly powerful benefits, including:
- Supports the immune system
- Regulates inflammation in the body
- Supports healthy hormones, skin and cardiovascular health
So, for last 3 months, I’ve been taking 3 drops in a veggie capsule every morning, as well as, applying it topically to my skin with my moisturizer every evening. Here’s what I’ve noticed:
- My age spots have disappeared.
- I have a more even skin tone with a glow that I haven’t seen in years.
- My hormones are in check!!
But that’s not all…
About a week before I being menstruating, I typically get a little moody and can be quick to anger. Plus, ever since having children, I have a heavy flow. However, after taking Yarrow|Pom consistently, my moodiness is almost TOTALLY GONE and my flow is so much lighter, which makes total sense because Yarrow|Pom has been found to reverse premature menopause!
So, what makes Yarrow|Pom Essential Oil so powerful?
It’s the 3 main constituents that are in the plant that pack a powerful punch: Beta-caryophyllene, Punicic Acid and Chamazulene.
1. Beta-caryophyllene (BCP)
This particular constituent is so powerful because it can bind to our CB2 receptors and activate many of the benefits of our endocannabinoid system.
Hold on…I see you with your crinkled nose and blank stare. Let me break this down…
What is a CB2 receptor?
This is one of 2 receptors that serve distinct functions in our health and have some pretty incredible roles, including:
- Inhibits the release of pro-inflammatory factors
- Regulates lipid production and triggers unhealthy cell death
- Stimulates the opioid receptor
- Helps with Alzheimer and Parkinson’s Disease
What’s our endocannabinoid system, and why is it important?
This is the system in our body that impacts physiological processes affecting:
- Pain modulation
- Inflammation response
- Immune system response
2. Punicic Acid
Punicic Acid is a component found in the Pomegranate Seed Oil…it’s the “Pom” to the “Yarrow.” This particular constituent is powerful because it:
- Promotes heart health
- Acts as a natural aphrodisiac
- Promotes flawless skin
- Improves the immune system
- Assists in weight loss because it supports a healthy metabolism
Also, Punicic Acid is a fatty acid, which is why it also helps with inflammation and can be quite successful to help manage pain.
Last, but not least is Chamazulene, which is why Yarrow|Pom is blue!
Chamazulene is actually a product of the distillation process and isn’t existent in the plant prior to that. Cool, right?!
Some of the incredible benefits chamazulene brings to this powerhouse essential oil include:
- Protects cells from stress caused by byproducts of normal cellular processes.
- Manages the activity of molecules involved in a normal immune response.
- Because Chamazulene contains a higher antioxidant value than both Vitamin C and E, it’s incredibly beneficial for the skin and immune system.
- Helps to eliminate free radicals in the body! (Free radicals are what can trigger disease and unhealthy cell proliferation. Thus, they need to be eliminated as soon as possible. Chamazulene helps protect the integrity of our immune system by getting rid of these unwanted molecules.)
As a whole…
This is an essential oil that I highly recommend that you have on hand and incorporate into your daily routine. In fact, I think doTERRA’s Science Blog summarizes it best…
‘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. 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.
To help, here’s some of their suggested uses:
- Consume one to two drops morning and night to promote a healthy metabolism.
- To promote a healthy immune response, take one to two drops of Yarrow|Pom daily.
- As part of your skin care routine, apply Yarrow|Pom to help promote the look of young and healthy skin, or to help reduce the appearance of blemishes.
- Apply Yarrow|Pom topically to any area of pain to quickly relieve discomfort.

I’ve just started using this and absolutely love it. I concur with the menstral benefits during my first cycle having only started a few weeks before my ‘last time’.
I’ve noticed my one age spot has lightened significantly but also looks a bit raised. I’m hoping this is part of the process of it coming off or disappearing! ????. This is definitely my favorite oil from doterra.
Thanks so much for sharing, Yvonne!! I loved hearing that you’ve been experiencing the same goodness. 🙂
Do you mix Yarrow/Pom with other oils in the veggie cap along with carrier oils? I’d rather take one pill… thinking of adding tumeric and copiaba. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Hi Tina – Yes, I mix the other oils in the same veggie capsule, but when you’re taking them internally, you don’t need carrier oil. Hope that helps! Thanks.
Yes, thank you!
🙂 You’re welcome!
I am having major mood swings and feeling of depressed and unworthy. I have been taking Yarrow Pom for about 3 days now. Also, I have not been sleeping very well Hope this goes away soon.
I’m so sorry to hear this, Monette. I also do teach other online classes about anxiety and depression that you might find helpful. I don’t have one scheduled at this moment, but if you keep checking the “Events” page on my site, you can see what classes are being taught. Hope this helps too! Thanks
Would this help with very bad Psoriasis. Please
Hi there – I would recommend Helichrysum and Thyme. Thanks
How would you use those two for psoriasis…. thank you for all the info you provide.
Bonnie…by applying it directly on location.
Thank you for sharing with us your experiences with Yarrow Pom.
I have got the oil too and started using it internally and on my skin.
I am wondering how long did it take till you saw first results (on the skin mainly)?
Hi Iri – For me, I noticed a skin different about 2 weeks after using Yarrow|Pom. However, please remember that everyone is biochemically individual, and I recommend any protocol for at least 90 days. I hope that helps!
Just wondering if you can take Yarrow-Pom internally in a glass with water instead of in a veggie cap?
Yes, you can. 🙂
Oil and water don’t mix …
So why do u suggest adding the oils to water ?
Hi Julie – I’m not exactly sure where your talking about in this post about my suggesting to mix the oils with water, but adding them to your water is just another easy way to consume the oils. It’s not so much about mixing them. Sorry for the confusion, but hope that clarifies things. Thanks!
I’ve just ordered the 60 capsules and want to know if I can open a capsule and apply topically. Also, is the Yarrow/Pom oil and what’s IN the capsules the same? Thanks.
Hi Lin – The ingredients are a bit different in the capsules. You can compare the ingredients lists here: https://media.doterra.com/us/en/pips/doterra-yarrow-pomegranate-essential-oil-blend-capsules.pdf and https://media.doterra.com/us/en/pips/doterra-yarrow-pom.pdf. I would also suggest following the directions on the capsules and taking them internally. I hope that helps. Thanks!
Can I just put a drop under my tongue? And should it be 1 or 2 drops?
🙂 Yes, that’s fine too.
is taking the Yarrow Pom capsules the same as taking the drops internally?
Yes, you could take the capsules too.
How many drops should you use on your face with your skin cream?
3-4 drops should work ok.
Hello thanks for this post. Is Doterra discontinuing yarrow/Pom? It seems several products are “temporarily unavailable”
You’re so welcome…and not that I know of. I just checked, and it’s still available.
I love all the information you provide and am excited about learning more of Yarrow-Pom. I am a three year BC survivor (yay!) and am on an estrogen blocker as my cancer was estrogen positive. I’ve read here that YP helps manage hormones and it makes me cautious to use it….what are your thoughts and thank you!
Hi Melanie – As a general statement, the oils don’t contraindicate medications. However, because I don’t know your specific bioindividual needs, it’s hard for me to give you specific advice. I’m sorry. Thanks
It’s just hard to know I appreciate your response. Take care!
