Blue Tansy Essential Oil
Blue Tansy Essential Oil is made from the tiny flowers of the Tanacetum annuum plant. Whilst being very small, the oil from these diminutive flowers has earned itself a big name!
This is because Blue Tansy Essential Oil has become a really popular ingredient in a broad range of personal care and cosmetic products, ranging from all manner of anti-acne preparations to many anti-ageing products.
Blue Tansy Essential Oil is profoundly anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory, so it supports immune function, and addresses the underlying issues of inflammatory skin conditions, like acne, eczema and psoriasis etc.
Blue Tansy has been researched by oncologists for anti-tumoural applications in the treatment of cancer, and radiologists also recognise Blue Tansy as an effective treatment for burns.
Tragically, the popularity of Blue Tansy Essential Oil nearly led to its demise. According to a leading online natural health website:
When the flower’s popularity in beauty products surged, it was harvested almost out of existence in the wild. Today, supplies are steadily increasing, but it’s still one of the more expensive essential oils.
