Blue Tansy comes from the beautiful, sustainable, yellow-flowered plant Tanacetum Annuum. Due to its Moroccan origin, many people know this plant as Moroccan Tansy or Moroccan Chamomile, as the flower is in the same plant group as Roman and German Chamomile. In order to extract the essential oil, farmers and distilleries harvest the plant from mid-July through September and use a steam distillation process.
Despite coming from a yellow-flowered plant, Blue Tansy gets its name from its deep indigo blue color. The chemical compound responsible for this color is chamazulene, which is a result of the steam distillation process. Chamazulene is made when the natural elements in the tansy plant react to the hot water vapor. Although you cannot find chamazulene in the Moroccan Tansy’s original state, this unique compound helps bring out the plant’s natural therapeutic and aromatherapeutic benefits.
"Soothes, nourishes and restores the skin"
Smell: highly aromatic, warm, bitter-green, herbaceous aroma with softly penetrating camphor top notes; has a warm, woody-herbaceous drydown.
Calm irritation: Whether you suffer from rosacea, eczema, or just general sensitivities, adding blue tansy to your skincare routine is a great option. Itching is often caused by inflammation of the skin, either due to environmental factors (such as a change in the season) or a reaction (such as a bug bite). Since blue tansy is a natural anti-inflammatory, it can offer general relief to tame the itchy symptoms from these flare-ups. These calming properties can also be used to help improve the pain and redness from a sunburn.
Reduce inflammation: Skin inflammation (a response to injury or irritation) could manifest in a number of ways: rosacea, UV damage (think: dark spots, redness, or messed-up collagen and elastin), breakouts, itching, or swelling. Adding blue tansy to your skincare routine will work wonders on your skin.
Soothe dry and sensitive skin: Mystical blue tansy eases feelings of emotional anxiety while releasing heat, providing nourishing relief and a comforting hug to even the most delicate and troubled complexions.
