Blue Tansy 5mL Tanacetum annuum
Blue Tansy, also referred to as Moroccan Tansy, is an annual yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant found in northern Morocco. Chamazulene, a chemical component in Blue Tansy, provides the characteristic indigo color and is recognised for its skin-soothing benefits. At the same time, the main chemical component, Sabinene, helps diminish the appearance of blemishes. It’s perfect for massaging into skin with Fractionated Coconut Oil or lotion after a long day of work or intense exercise to aid the body in the natural recovery process.

“Tanacetum annuum is often confused with common tansy (Tanacetum vulgare). But the former produces an essential oil that is completely different chemically. 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. The oil from Tanacetum vulgare is never blue in color as it contains no chamazulene. For this reason a high thujone oil from Tanacetum vulgare should never be referred to as “Blue Tansy” oil. Any such blue oil containing significant thujone is an adulterated product.” Read More
