Botanical Name: Tanacetum annuum L.

Main Constituents:
Chamazulene: 3-15%

Plant Part: Leaves and Flowers

Origin: Morocco

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thick, blue liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A middle note with a medium aroma, Tansy Blue has a surprisingly sweet scent making it perfect for applications in skin-care products.

Blends With: Blends well with most essential oils, though particularly with Ravensara and Ravintsara. When blending, special attention should be given for color issues that may arise; for example, a bluish tint or discoloration if used in a white cream or lotion.

Product Abstract: Blue Tansy is also known as True Moroccan Chamomile. Another variety grown in Morocco, Ormensis multicaulis, is correctly called Wild Moroccan Chamomile, but it does not have the distinctive blue colour of the other chamomiles. Blue Tansy, like the other blue essential oils, contains the active azulene. It seems to display its strongest effects if its maximum concentration in a blend does not exceed 5%.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I love this oil. I add it to the moisturizer since I have skin that is prone to eczema due to environmental allergies and this helps with its anti-inflammitory properties. I can't use blue chammomile since it's part of the rag weed family. Lovely aroma.

This is my secret weapon for easing sore, tired muscles without sending me to sleep. It also works well in my anti-infammatory mix and gives it a pleasant topnote. Many people have commented on how fresh the smell is, and it's always the blue tansy they notice!

One of my very favorite oils. I add this in small amounts to many formulas where a good chill-out, imune-boosting, anti-inflamatory with nice color and great smell is helpful. SWEET!

First, I'm only commenting on this oil for its aroma and color and not for any of its therapeutic properties, which I haven't experimented with. The scent is similar to chamomile but MUCH stronger, less sweet, and a little medicinal. Also, the oil is VERY blue, and so it will stain your product unless you use the tiniest amount. I haven't tried this diluted, and maybe it would smell a lot better that way, but for using it right out of the bottle, I'd definitely recommend going with chamomile instead, especially since the South African chamomile is actually less expensive.

I truly love your Blue Tansy. It is great for nerve pain. I've used it in conjunction with other oils for Carpal Tunnel and the nerve pain is gone almost as soon as you put it on. You will have to apply it several times as soon as the pain returns, but after a while you need it less often. Add German Chamomile and other healing oils with a carrier oil.

Love, love, love this oil! I keep it in the kitchen and have found it to be quite helpful twice when I burned myself trying to bake cookies or picking up a large pot. I put the essential oil on my skin neet, as I would have done with the Blue Chamomile. Since I am sensitive to ragweed, this works wonderfully as it has the same healing properties with burns that blue chamomile does, yet you don't have to worry about a reaction. It's become a new staple in my essential oil kit!

What a strange and pleasing scent. While sweet and almost floral it has this invigorating essence to it as well I can feel it stimulating my nasal passages with just a slight sniff from the bottle! Cant wait to try it out on skin conditions and colds not to mention allergies! Oh and of course this will be tried in perfume making too!

This oil is excellent for coping with respiratory allergies. I combine it with green myrtle and use it as a chest and backrub for the kids. Very mild, but amazingly effective. Found out that the blend works with colds too. I put it in hand balms for eczema. Works miracles in that application as well. Great essential oil!
