She has small, feathery leaves and white flowers, and has been used by carpenter's and construction workers to help with wounds and to stop the bleeding. Blue Yarrow gets her blue color from the chemical constituent Azulene that shifts during the distillation process to a blue color because of the natural alchemical process.
