What is blue tansy oil?

Blue tansy oil is derived from a North African flower, known for its calming, soothing and anti-inflammatory benefits.

The funny thing is, the flower of blue tansy, or Tanacetum Annuum, is yellow. In fact, it’s known as Moroccan chamomile because its flower closely resembles that of chamomile, albeit a bit taller at 15 inches in height. The plant is a member of the Asteraceae family, which includes a variety of aromatic plants, such as tarragon, the aforementioned chamomile, everlasting and wormwood. Blue tansy is native to the Mediterranean basin, and it was very nearly harvested out of existence but was recently revived in Morocco, where it’s now thriving.

Why is it blue?

This brilliant blue-colored oil is extracted through a steam distillation process of involving the plant’s leaves, stems and flowers. It is this process that pulls out the plant’s naturally high concentration of chamazulene, transforming it from the color of the sun to the glorious, deep blue shade of the sea.

What does blue tansy smell like?

Besides being a delight to the eyes, blue tansy us a treat for the nose. Its sweet, fruity and floral aroma, coupled with camphor (menthol) and herbaceous undertones are sure to unwind and completely relax the senses.

What are blue tansy benefits?

Loved by both aromatherapists and dermatologists, blue tansy oil not only works to soothe the nervous system, it also works wonders on your skin. It’s believed to have antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Skin benefits

Blue tansy oil’s cooling and calming properties are great for angry, irritated skin conditions like acne and eczema, according to New York City dermatologist, Patricia Wexler, M.D. And since it’s packed with antioxidants, it’s great for all skin types – especially mature and aging skin.

This combination of benefits helps to:

  • Calm irritation (bug bites, heat rash, etc.)
  • Reduce heat and inflammation
  • Provide relief from skin issues such as eczema, acne and dermatitis
  • Soothe dry and sensitive skin

Aromatherapy benefits

The natural component, chamazulene, is responsible for much of the oil's therapeutic benefits accordinbg to Michelle Gilbert, an Ohio-based aromatherapist. It’s this component that calms and relaxes the senses, making it a great emotional and mental rejuvenator when used in aromatherapy.

When used as an aromatherapeutic agent, blue tansy oil is: 

  • Great for relaxation and calming anxiety and stress
  • A natural antihistamine, helping to alleviate seasonal respiratory symptoms
  • Provides respiratory support, helping to clear congestion and promote easier breathing

True blue tansy oil

Because blue tansy oil is such a popular product, it’s important to be wary of imitation products. Be sure to buy from reputable sellers, and if in doubt, double (and triple!) check ingredients lists. What's the number one ingredient to look for in real blue tansy oil? Tanacetum Annuum. The ingredient Tanacetum Vulgare may seem similar, but it s completely different from Tanacetum Annuum. Before you buy, make sure you know the difference to avoid mistaken purchases.

*Always spot check

If you have an allergy to ragweed or suffer from hay fever, always do a spot check on yourself first, before using the product extensively.
