- Blue Tansy
Our Blue Tansy essential oil is grown and distilled in Morocco. Sometimes known as Moroccan Tansy, or Moroccan Blue Chamomile, Blue Tansy has become very popular in recent years for use in skin care products, especially in face creams. Tanacetum annum is often confused with common tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) but the former produces an essential oil that is completely different chemically as it contains no thujone and high amounts of chamazulene making the oil dark blue in color, giving rise to its common name of Blue Tansy Oil. For topical use, lower dilutions are best, about 5%.
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.

tiered whorls of shade
from each small dark torch.
Their lingering pungency
masks every doubt. Their
any violence, the incisions of loss.
They gainsay with blurred
the sulphurous tansy's sun-stricken
risk. And so they erase
its posed oppositions—sly poison
or bright, piquant herb? One
doubled. You might wish
for more clarity. Still,
believe this: there's no wounding here, no
griefs, deprivation. Only
what seeps and what tangles,
denying you nothing, or nothing
As with most essential oils, dilute before using on skin. Perform a patch test before use if essential oil sensitivity is suspected. Do not take essential oils internally. Do not use on children or pets. Seek advice from a trained aromatherapist before using on people with compromised immune systems. Keep away from eyes and mucus membranes.
