Possible side effects

  • Not recommended for women who take contraceptive pills are used, especially for those who know that they are prone to malignancies.
  • Yarrow may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae/Compositae family. Members of this family include ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and many others.

Our plants are harvested during particular seasons, and times of the day and according to the lunar calendar to ensure the plants or parts of them have the highest nutritional value. For example, roots are picked on a waning moon. Once harvested, they are packaged by hand because we try to avoid using metal equipment and utensils that could reduce the beneficial properties of the plant.

Because these products do contain active ingredients, please ensure that you do not exceed the recommended doses and if in any doubt, or if you experience any side effects – however slight – please consult your doctor or healthcare professional.
