THIS WEEK'S TUESDAY TIP OFF IS ... BLUE TANSY!!!
Updated: Aug 2, 2019
Blue Tansy (Tanacetum annuum) is often confused with Common Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare), although Blue Tansy produces an essential oil with very different chemical components. Blue Tansy contains no thujone and high amounts of chamazulene. When the plant is distilled, the chamazulene gives Blue Tansy its rich blue hue. Blue Tansy can be used for its ability to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and soothe skin irritation.
Blue Tansy, also referred to as Moroccan Tansy, is an annual yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant found in northern Morocco.
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.
How to Use
Find your favorite blend to diffuse. Blue Tansy blends well with Clary Sage, Coriander, Geranium, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Petitgrain, Rose, Spearmint, and Ylang Ylang.Inhale deeply for an uplifting sensation.
Add a few drops with Fractionated Coconut Oil for a soothing massage.Add one to two drops to your favorite skin cleanser to help promote clean and clear-looking skin (test on small patch of skin first).
Use as a natural dye and pleasant fragrance in place of a soap colorant.
Note: Blue Tansy may stain surfaces, fabrics, and skin.
Blue Tansy is often times mistakenly referred to as Moroccan Chamomile, though Moroccan Chamomile is actually an entirely different species.
