Ah, the blue tansy. Often misrepresented as an exotic azure blossom, it’s really a yellow-flowered herb. But this humble little plant packs a serious punch when it comes to health and skin benefits.
Ok But... Why is it Called Blue Tansy if It’s Yellow?
The essential oil distilled from its leaves, flowers, and stems is actually a member of the chamomile family. Blue tansy, sometimes called ‘Moroccan Blue Chamomile’, contains a compound called azulene which, when steam distilled, produces a beautiful blue hue.
Benefits & Uses of Blue Tansy Essential Oil
When you think of chamomile, a calming, soothing cup of hot tea probably comes to mind - blue tansy is no different.
Powerful Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Because it’s rich in antioxidants, blue tansy can help to reduce oxidative stress and combat inflammation. It’s also known to minimize redness and soothe skin irritation, which make it ideal for anyone with sensitive skin and those looking to calm eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rosacea.
