Blue Tansy Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Tanacetum annuum
Plant Part: Leaves and Flowers
Extraction Method: Steam
Description: Tanacetum annuum produces leaves and flowers, from which the Blue essential oil Tansy Blue is extracted through high pressure, low heat steam extraction.
Strength of Aroma: Medium
Blends well with: Most essential oils, though particularly Ravensara.
When blending, special attention should be given to color issues that may arise (for example – discoloration if used in a white cream or lotion).
Aromatic Scent: Tansy Blue has a surprisingly sweet scent making it perfect for applications in skin care products and skin therapies.
History: Tansy blue is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Moroccan Chamomile, though Moroccan Chamomile is actually an entirely different species.
Cautions: Tansy Blue is generally non-irritating and non-toxic. Nonetheless, the preferred mode of use is external. It seems to display its strongest effects if its maximum concentration in a blend does not exceed 5%.
