Some people have never heard of blue tansy (also known as Tanacetum Annuum) - I know I hadn't when I first came across it. But Blue Tansy has to stand out in the crowd as one of the most versatile oils out there. Let's take a closer look at this beauty and what it does for us.
-Has aromatherapy benefits, great for relaxation and calming anxiety and stress. It's also a natural antihistamine, and can provide respiratory support, helping to clear congestion.
-Has strong antioxidant properties and is highly anti-inflammatory, it is part of the Chamomile family, so it's a nervine herb which means it helps to relax the nervous system.
-The Blue color of this oil is not synthetic, it's the actual plant that creates it's own beauty when steam distilled and creates the blue color.
-Can help regenerate liver cells and detoxify the body
-Helps calm the skin and relieve irritating skin conditions like acne and eczema and it's great for dry and sensitive skin all the same.
-Helps to brighten and even out your skins tone
-Helps to rejuvenate the skin cells which can make wrinkles, scars and other blemishes less noticeable since it has tissue regenerating properties.
-Can help with burns, blisters, boils and other skin issues that benefit from the soothing this oil provides. On this note, it's great for sunburns too!
-Mix some with a carrier oil and rub it on your abdomen to help calm the feel of upset stomachs, gas or cramps.
Also, it's helpful to note that Blue Tansy also is known as Blue Chamomile (although it's more commonly referred to as Blue Tansy) and it is NOT the same oil as "Tansy Oil" which can be toxic. Make sure you are always purchasing your oils from a reputable source and there are no added dilutions in the product.
