An essential oil that is often compared to a fine wine, Blue Tansy essential oil is fresh and enticing with a sweet aroma. Blue Tansy’s rarity and complexity is part of its allure.
Diffusing or softly inhaling Blue Tansy in a space in need of peace and tranquility can help soothe nervous tension.
Sometimes confused with Tansy oil (Tanacetum vulgare), Blue Tansy Oil (Tanacetum annuum) is non-toxic and wonderfully powerful in aromatherapy. Tansy Oil is toxic and should never be used for aromatherapy purposes. The distinction is very important and should be noted while browsing other essential oil websites.
Because of the chamazulene content, Blue Tansy has a gorgeous deep blue color that forms when the flowering tops of the plant are distilled. Extracted through steam distillation, Blue Tansy is also known as Moroccan Tansy.
