Blue Tansy Essential Oil


Derived from the yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant that grows in northern Morocco, Blue Tansy Essential Oil, also known as Moroccan Chamomile Essential Oil, is deep blue in colour and is steam distilled from the fresh flowering tops of the Tanacetum annuum plant. This highly valued essential oil is said to carry an intensely refreshing, sweet-herbaceous aroma with a subtle camphoraceous top note.


Despite coming from a yellow-flowered plant, Blue Tansy gets its deep indigo colour (and name) from a chemical compound called chamazulene. This compound is a result of the steam distillation process; when the tansy plant reacts to hot water vapor the oil changes colour. Whilst chamazulene is not found in the Blue Tansy flower, the naturally occurring constituent contributes to the many benefits that Blue Tansy Essential Oil has to offer.


• Blue Tansy Essential Oil is primarily known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic abilities.

• In aromatherapy, it has been seen to exert an incredible calming effect that is known to ease feelings of stress and acute pain. Plus, the benefits of Blue Tansy Oil are also known to provide emotional stability in the presence of stress and negativity.

• From a skincare perspective, the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties within Blue Tansy Oil work to repair damaged skin caused by breakouts, wounds, sunburn and abrasions. It has also been said to be an effective anti-wrinkle agent.

• These anti-inflammatory properties have also been seen to assist with dermatitis, arthritis, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, muscle cramps, nerve pain, arthritis and fibromyalgia.

• When diffused and inhaled, the benefits of Blue Tansy Essential Oil are also known to relax the cardiovascular and respiratory system. This makes it useful to those experiencing respiratory related illnesses such as bronchitis and excessive coughing.


Not to mention, Blue Tansy Essential Oil blends well with a variety of different essential oils. To create a soothing and relaxing essential oil blend, combine your Blue Tansy Essential Oil with Lavender essential oil, Rose Geranium, Juniper Berry, or Ylang Ylang essential oil. In addition, Blue Tansy Oil blends well with Clary Sage, Petitgrain and Spearmint essential oils.
