Hey, everyone! I wanted to show you one of my favorite oils right now, Blue Tansy! It’s new this year to doTERRA and when I saw it, I knew it was going to be amazing! I wanted to share with you what it is for and how I use it!
Blue Tansy, also referred to as Moroccan Tansy, is an annual yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant found in northern Morocco. Chamazulene, a chemical component in Blue Tansy, provides the characteristic indigo color and is recognized for its skin-soothing benefits. At the same time, the main chemical component Sabinene helps diminish the appearance of blemishes. Uplifting to the mood, Blue Tansy provides a sweet aroma to fill any room. It’s perfect for massaging skin with fractionated coconut oil or lotion after a long day of work or intense exercise to aid the body in the natural recovery process. Did you know that Blue Tansy is also found in the Deep Blue Essential Oil?
- Diffuse to uplift mood and create a positive atmosphere.
- Add a drop to one or two ounces of your favorite moisturizer or cleanser and apply topically to help reduce the appearance of blemishes or soothe skin irritation.
- Include one or two drops in lotion for a restoring massage after a stressful day or extreme workout.
Diffusion: Use one to two drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity or temporary staining.
I also have been using my derma beauty roller with my Blue Tansy in my skin care routine. It’s been really making my skin amazing! Have you ever used a derma beauty roller?
Although this is not an oil that you can take internally, you can use Blue Tansy in a variety of ways both topically and aromatically.
- As previously mentioned, Blue Tansy can be great for your skin. We like adding it to our facial cleanser to help reduce the appearance of blemishes. You can also add it into your moisturizer to soothe your skin.
- Blue Tansy’s mellow and slightly fruity scent has specific uplifting properties that help create a positive atmosphere when diffused. Try creating your own blends! Oils that go well with Blue Tansy include Geranium, Clary Sage, Petitgrain, Lavender, Juniper Berry, Spearmint, and Ylang Ylang.
- Using it as a natural dye and pleasant fragrance in place of soap colorant as a variation of our past post about kid’s DIY soap.
- Combine with Lavender and Fractionated Coconut Oil for a soothing massage after a long day. Other oils you can combine it with include Wintergreen, Cypress, or even AromaTouch®.
- Add six drops to your bath with one tablespoon Fractionated Coconut Oil and one cup Epsom salt for a calming and relaxing atmosphere. Alternately, add Blue Tansy to these bath bombs.
