- Blue Tansy
Our Blue Tansy (Tanacetum annum) essential oil was grown and distilled in Morocco. Sometimes it is referred to as Moroccan Tansy, or Moroccan Blue Chamomile. It has extraordinary anti-inflammatory power, especially when applied in an early stage of inflammation. Blue Tansy has become very popular in recent years for use in skin care products, especially in face creams. It contains Chamazulene, a powerful antioxidant, which gives it the blue color, and is also found in German Chamomile, Yarrow, and other essential oils. Judging by the wide-spread use of this oil and the lack of reported problems with it, it appears to be fairly safe to use topically.
It has an intoxicatingly sweet and creamy-rich, and somewhat camphorous scent, with an herbaceous bottom. It would be a good heart-note, or middle note in a perfume.
