Blue Tansy: The Sapphire-Hued Hero Essential Oil

If you walked the skincare shelves of your local cosmetics chain recently, you’ve probably encountered creams, oils, and tinctures all tinted a vibrant blue color. Blue Tansy Essential Oil (tanacetum annuum) has gained popularity over the last few years and for good reason. The rich, deep blue-colored essential oil has a complex, yet, sweet scent, making it stand out among the rest.

The Blue Tansy flower is actually part of the Chamomile family, and its yellow flowers and stems are harvested from Morocco. Once distilled, a compound, called Chamazulene is released, a powerful antioxidant also responsible for this oil’s signature blue shade. Blue Tansy should not be confused with Tansy oil (tanacetum vulgare), which has toxic properties and should never be used as aromatherapy.

Beyond the vibrant indigo color, there are numerous benefits to using this essential oil. Here’s why Blue Tansy essential oil is the sapphire-hued hero everyone needs in their medicine cabinet.

Promotes Feelings of Relaxation

The color and scent of Blue Tansy seemingly beg us to take a deep breath and calm down. Blue Tansy contains high amounts of Camphor, which may have a calming effect when inhaled. It’s often used in aromatherapy practices to help you feel grounded when stressed or relaxed at bedtime.

You can try diffusing Blue Tansy in your home, or slowly inhaling from the bottle whenever you feel the need to unwind.

Helps Reduce Feelings of Anger

From an emotional perspective, Blue Tansy Essential Oil has a unique ability to help relieve irritation and feelings of anger. When used in aromatherapy Blue Tansy may help release the emotions of rage and frustration that may make us feel stuck. It also may help boost more positive feelings when diffused or inhaled.
