Yarrow – A journey home
Updated: Jan 20, 2022
In our Traditions section, you will find the next chapter from AROMATIKA’s editor and Cretan correspondent Ildiko Berecz at Essential Reflections who takes us with her on her years of extraordinary journeying with beautiful Yarrow.
“With legions of feather-like leaves and coherent clusters of small flowers which are somewhat reminiscent of the phenomenally organised nature of bees and their hives, I have been persistently guided by Yarrow to find my way home. And you may ask, where is your home?… In this run of attempts, I evoke the spirit of Yarrow (Achillea millefolium), who has been that Master healer plant accompanying my decades of journeys on lands, both newly found and re-discovered, to help me co-share our experiences together.”
“A multidimensional experience, sensory, embodying, fully aromatic, while spiritual in nature, that led me to embrace being in my body. Being in nature grounded me. Connecting to my heart helped to follow my call. Exploring and expressing more freely and authentically ignited finding my way home. In other words, to embody who I am.”
Ildiko’s visual essay stretches over decades of the wounded healer, and includes recent co-creative chapters reporting from our magical editorial shared experience as Gergely and herself were distilling Yarrow in summer 2021.
