ABOUT THE OIL
This Blue Tansy essential oil is steam distilled using organic Moroccan blue tansy flowers. It has a deep blue color due to its chamazulene content, a highly anti-inflammatory compound modified from matracin that turns blue during the distillation process (This same change occurs when German Chamomile is distilled). Not to be confused with Tansy oil (which is generally not recommended for use by the majority of professional aromatherapists) Blue Tansy Oil is non-toxic and has many similar properties to German 'Blue' Chamomile oil, with a somewhat lighter and sweeter tone. It's anti-inflammatory properties per drop will be slightly less, yet the aroma is more widely appreciated--particularly this organic variety -- it's one of our store favorites.
This particular Blue Tansy has a deep blue color and a warm, complex herbaceous sweetness. It is as though you are laying in patch of wild blueberries deep in an old growth forest. It blends well with Lemongrass, Rosemary, Helichrysum, Cypress, Pine and Chamomile oils. It is especially nice in combination with many "needle" oils such as Fir and Black Spruce. With the addition of a small amount of carrier oil, this creates a somewhat masculine natural perfume.
For centuries, Blue Tansy has been used to relieve symptoms from an array of histamine-mediated allergic reactions. The active ingredient, chamulzine may also quite useful for asthma when blended with Ravensara. It is one of the primary oils recommended for relief with sinus allergies, especially for children who don't mind a little "war paint" on their face (as it will be a bit blue at their sinus areas for a while). It's also one of the first choices for relief of itching or irritation from mosquito and other insect bites and stings. A drop may be used "neat", or 3-5 drops per teaspoon may be blended in a soothing carrier such as coconut or tamanu oils.
