We are excited to now offer the multifaceted Blue Tansy essential oil. Despite its blue color, Blue Tansy is extracted from the yellow North African Moroccan chamomile flower from a steam distillation process. The terpenes in the leaves and stem of the flower turn the oil it’s vibrant, cobalt blue tint. Due to its blue color and its potential to stain skin and other surfaces, it is recommended that Blue Tansy be used sparingly. With Blue Tansy’s sweet, citrus fragrance, aromatherapy, anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties, it is a fantastic addition to an immense array of products.
Blue Tansy oil is deadly for bacteria, viruses, and fungus alike. It is a strong warrior for protection against infections and helps boost immunity to foreign invaders. The thujone and camphor content are toxic for their spores and inhibits their multiplication.
Along with keeping microscopic critters away, Blue Tansy is also an excellent insecticide. It’s pungent aroma and poisonous nature helps keep common household insects like mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and lice at bay - making Blue Tansy a great additive to any insect repellent.
Blue Tansy has been found to give effective relief for allergies as well. It is an effective histamine neutralizer that can help curb allergic reactions, particularly pertaining to skin issues like rashes and itches.
Along with its substantial amount of topical uses, Blue Tansy also has several aromatherapy qualities. Anyone suffering from anxiety, stress, depression, irritability, or any other emotional instability can find relief in the sweet smell when it is added to any diffuser. Its anti-histamine quality can also help with respiratory issues like severe coughs, asthma, and other breathing afflictions.
