YES bottle

A mixture of Yarrow Achillea millefolium, Pink Yarrow Achillea millefolium var. rubra, Golden Yarrow Achillea filipendulina, Arnica Arnica mollis, and Echinacea Echinacea purpurea flower essences, along with herbal tinctures of Yarrow and Echinacea, in a sea salt water base.

Yarrow Environmental Solution (YES) is a highly beneficial blend of flower essences and whole plant tinctures in a sea salt base. Its purpose is to strengthen and protect against toxic environmental influences, geopathic stress, and other hazards of technology-dominated modern life. This includes the disruptive effects of radiation on human energy fields from x-rays, televisions, computer monitors, electromagnetic fields, airplane flights or nuclear fallout.

YES is formulated from three different variations of the Yarrow plant, along with two related allies in the same plant family—Echinacea and Arnica. All of these plants are members of the Composite (Asteraceae) family, recognized as exceptional for their finely detailed geometric patterns and strong, enduring structures. As herbs they have numerous valuable qualities for enhancing the immune response. Working together in YES, these plants perform in a synergistic manner to strengthen the integrity of the immune system and clarity of consciousness with the human individuality.

 Yarrow Herb and Flower Essence
Achillea millefolium, Achillea millefolium var. rubra, Achillea filipendulina 

Yarrow has been known historically as a warrior's herb, with such traditional names as "Soldier's Wound Wort" and "Knight's Millefoil." The genus name Achillea refers to the Greek warrior Achilles, whose soldiers carried the herb into battle for psychic protection as well as to staunch the bleeding of wounds. Even its form, a canopy of white flowers, suggests a protective "umbrella" of white light.

Yarrow flower essence has become one of the most widely acclaimed FES essences since it was first prepared in 1978. It has been used extensively with individuals who feel "vulnerable" (literally: "able to be wounded") to the influences of others and their environment. It "knits together" an overly porous aura - the envelope of vital energy that surrounds and protects the body. It encourages a healthy sense of Self, imparting strength, integrity, and clarity of consciousness typical of members of the Composite family.

The Yarrow flowers are the very heart of the YES formula, with qualities that unite and harmonize the essential polarities of both Arnica and Echinacea. With its fine feathery leaves and highly attenuated umbel-like blossoms, the Yarrow plant is an extraordinary picture of soul sensitivity. As the soul mediates between body and spirit, so does the Yarrow plant integrate both light and form in a most remarkable way. Its role in this formula is to allow the soul, or middle realm of the human being to remain sensitive and in touch with its feeling life, but in such a way that these soul qualities are neither blunted by the harshness of the modern technological world, or made so diffuse and porous as to stymie the vital expression of the individual. Arnica and Echinacea act as anchors from the polarities of body and spirit, to facilitate the full unfoldment of soul forces which the Yarrow so uniquely bestows. Finally, within this essential trinity is still another exquisite trine within the Yarrow flowers themselves of white, pink and golden flowers to balance the energetic structures of the soul.

Arnica Flower Essence 
(Arnica mollis) 

Arnica is a well-known herbal and homeopathic remedy for shock and trauma, particularly when there is damage to soft tissue. Often, when we are in a situation of physical or psychic trauma, we separate our awareness from our bodies as a way of coping with pain.

Arnica flower essence is widely used for deep-seated shock or trauma which may become locked into the body and prevent full physical recovery, and for many puzzling psychosomatic illnesses that do not respond to obvious treatment. Arnica can also be used on a short-term first-aid basis to allow rapid recovery from trauma. 

Echinacea Herb and Flower Essence
(Echinacea purpurea) 

Echinacea is a powerful herb native to the American Midwest. It is known as an immune system enhancer, and is used widely as an herbal tincture to increase resistance to cold, flu, and other infectious diseases. 

Just as the immune system is an expression of the integrity of the physical body, protecting it against what would harm or destroy it, so our sense of Self or individuality expresses spiritual integrity. The flower essence of Echinacea is used for the many challenges on our Self-hood. The anonymity of modern civilization, along with countless other mechanizing and alienating forces such as acts of crime, violence, and sexual or emotional degradation, can shatter the dignity of the Self. Echinacea flower essence stimulates and awakens the true inner Self, and restores the soul's self-identity and wholeness in relationship to the Earth and to the human family. 

History of Yarrow Environmental Solution [formerly Yarrow Special Formula]

The idea for a "radiation remedy" came from the late Dr. Aubrey Westlake of England, who experimented with combinations of English flower remedies in salt water. In personal correspondence with us, he described such a remedy as "indicated when there is reason to think that the patient may have had an overdose of radiation from nuclear fallout...[or other forms or radiation]. In these cases the remedy appears to work therapeutically on the etheric body, and not directly on the physical." During a visit in his home in Hampshire in 1984, we shared with Dr. Westlake the idea of using Yarrow essence as a further formulation of the radiation remedy, an idea which he enthusiastically supported.

In 1986, after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster in Europe, we received numerous requests for a remedy that could help counteract the devitalizing effects of the radiation. We prepared Yarrow Special Formula for practitioners working near Chernobyl and other affected European countries, with many favorable results.

In 2003, we added the essences of Pink Yarrow and Golden Yarrow to further strengthen the formula, and it was renamed Yarrow Environmental Solution.

Indications for Using Yarrow Environmental Solution

As a general tonic and strengthener to help the individual to meet harsh technological and environmental challenges in the modern world.

Before and after exposure to radiation in X-rays, video terminals, airports, radiation treatments.

When subjected to forces of geopathic stress, strong electromagnetic fields, or other forms of environmental toxicity.

To strengthen the immune system, particularly those who are prone to allergies and chemical sensitivities, or other forms of immune dysfunction.

During or after times of extreme stress, especially experiences which seem to shatter or tear apart the core sense of identity and integrity.

For those with pronounced sensitivity, which is especially affected when traveling, in large crowds of people or similar taxing situations. 

Note: The intended action of this formula is on the etheric level. Anyone suffering from physical illness as a result of radiation or other environmental afflictions should immediately consult an appropriate medical practitioner.

Dosage and Administration

Dosages should be taken directly from the stock bottle, four drops at a time, at least four times a day. Another dosage method is to add sixteen drops of the stock to a glass of water, stir and sip the mixture throughout the day. The frequency of these dosages should be increased during and immediately following radiation exposure. Yarrow Environmental Solution [formerly Yarrow Special Formula] is also very effective in the general environment. It can be put into a misting bottle and sprayed around the entire person or in the surrounding atmosphere.

Yarrow Environmental Solution [formerly Yarrow Special Formula] is equally beneficial when added to bath water. Put several dropperfuls in mildly warm bath water, and stir in a lemniscatory (figure eight) pattern for at least one minute. Soak for 20 minutes in this solution, and then lie quietly wrapped in towels for at least one hour following, to completely absorb the beneficial qualities of the bath. 


Yarrow Environmental Solution is $7.95 for 1/4 oz drops, and $14.95 for 1 oz drops or spray. For full listing of products and prices, please see the Price List.
