A to Z of essential oils
Blue Tansy, also referred to as Moroccan Tansy, is an annual yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant found in northern Morocco. Chamazulene, a chemical component in Blue Tansy activated during distillation, provides the characteristic indigo colour and is recognized for its skin soothing benefits. At the same time, the main chemical component Sabinene helps diminish the appearance of blemishes. Uplifting to the mood, Blue Tansy provides a sweet aroma to fill any room. It’s perfect for massaging into skin with fractionated coconut oil or lotion after a long day of work or intense exercise to aid the body in the natural recovery process.
Be warned that Blue Tansy can temporarily colour the skin so always dilute and test first to see how long it takes to disappear as it is different for everyone. Do not apply to the face for the first time before an important date!
Emotionally Blue Tansy is the oil of inspired action. It provides a kind of catalytic spark that overcomes the tendency to procrastinate. Blue Tansy invites us to manifest our passion into action.
A great diffuser blend when you have great things you want to achieve is Blue Tansy, Litsea and Frankincense.
