Blue Tansy Essential Oil comes from the Moroccan plant Tanacetum annuum and is a cousin to the Roman Camomile plant. Be careful to not get it on your clothes or skin directly because it has been known to stain from its deep indigo color. But don’t worry, use it topically with Fractionated Coconut oil and you will be stain free.
Blue Tansy is one of the latest and greatest oils and comes from a bright yellow-flowered Mediterranean herb. Most of you have actually probably already experienced the benefits of Blue Tansy as it is a key ingredient in the Deep Blue collection. It has naturally powerful soothing properties that help provide relief after a hard workout. On its own, this oil is perfect for reducing blemishes, is a great help when your mood needs a little extra oomph, and can provide a more concentrated soothing sensation when applied topically with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Our Favorite Uses
Although this is not an oil that you can take internally, you can use Blue Tansy in a variety of ways both topically and aromatically.
- As previously mentioned, Blue Tansy can be great for your skin. We like adding it to our facial cleanser to help reduce the appearance of blemishes. You can also add it into your moisturizer to soothe your skin.
- Blue Tansy’s mellow and slightly fruity scent has specific uplifting properties that help create a positive atmosphere when diffused. Try creating your own blends! Oils that go well with Blue Tansy include Geranium, Clary Sage, Petitgrain, Lavender, Juniper Berry, Spearmint, and Ylang Ylang.
- Using it as a natural dye and pleasant fragrance in place of soap colorant as a variation of our past post about kid’s DIY soap.
- Combine with Lavender and Fractionated Coconut Oil for a soothing massage after a long day. Other oils you can combine it with include Wintergreen, Cypress, or even AromaTouch®.
- Add six drops to your bath with one tablespoon Fractionated Coconut Oil and one cup Epsom salt for a calming and relaxing atmosphere. Alternately, add Blue Tansy to these bath bombs.
- Another name for Blue Tansy is the Moroccan Tansy thanks to its country of origin.
- Blue Tansy’s botanical name is Tanacetum annuum, not to be confused with Tanacetum vulgare or common tansy oil, which has a very different chemical make-up.
