Blue Tansy essential oil, our favourite
Blue Tansy, also known as Moroccan Chamomile (Tanacetum annuum),is used on skin for its anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation properties as well as within aromatherapy as a mild calmative and mind relaxant.
Blue tansy products are characterised by an intensely sweet herbal scent and a deep, dark royal blue colour.
The blooms of blue tansy are yellow. The flowers and stems are gathered and steam-distilled. In the distillation process, one of the chemical components of the oil, chamazulene, is released. When heated, chamazulene turns deep blue, giving the oil it’s indigo-to-cerulean hue
Blue tansy essential oil is considered by aromatherapists to be particularly beneficial in treating inflamed and damaged skin. Tanacetum anuum is classed as a nervine and is one of the best aromatherapeutic remedies to ease stress, calm down anxiety and help fade away nervous tension.
