For those who know me (Hi! I’m Tyler from SEOR!), it’s no surprise that I absolutely ADORE Blue Tansy. I love the smell, the deep dark blue color, and most importantly the benefits packed into the tiny bottle. It is truly a remarkable essential oil. If you haven’t read about Plant Therapy’s trip to Morocco in search of Blue Tansy, you should definitely do that now, here. It will give you a great appreciation for not only the oil, but the plant, farms, and distillers.
To give you some background on Tanacetum annuum, it is a perennial, herbaceous plant commonly referred to as Blue Tansy or Moroccan Chamomile. It is a seasonal crop that requires optimal growing conditions so it may be scarce and unavailable at times. Plant Therapy’s version of this essential oil is sourced from Morocco from a green, hairy plant that produces small yellow flowers.
So you probably find yourself asking, why should I buy it? What benefits does it have? Let me enlighten you with my top 3 uses for Blue Tansy.
1. Promote calmness and relaxation
Blue Tansy to me is very relaxing and helps promote a sense of calmness that I just don’t find with oils. The dark, deep blue color paired with complex and sweet aroma is just so relaxing.
After long, stressful winter days, I like to come home and diffuse 3 drops of Bergamot, 2 drops of Cedarwood Atlas, and 1 drop of Blue Tansy to help melt away the stress of the day.
2. Support a healthy respiratory system during times of high seasonal pollen
As someone who loves to spend time outdoors, especially in the spring and early fall, I rely heavily on essential oils to help keep me healthy and breathing easily, especially Blue Tansy. I keep my Respiratory Powerhouse inhaler in my pockets at all times as it’s packed with powerful oils that help make my outdoor adventures possible.
You can make your own Respiratory Powerhouse inhaler by adding 4 drops of Saro, 3 drops of Ho Wood, 2 drops of Blue Tansy, 2 drops of Lemon, and 1 drop of Cedarwood Atlas to your personal inhaler.
3. Promote healthy feeling skin.
Blue Tansy is a useful essential oil for many different things as we’ve discussed so far. But what about its topical uses? Well, never fear! Blue Tansy makes a fabulous addition to your skincare routines as it helps promote healthy looking skin, leaving you looking and feeling better than ever.
Use it in your favorite facial serums, hand lotions, or body butter alongside your other favorite skincare essential oils.
