This week I'm putting the spotlight on one of my ingredient crushes, Blue Tansy (botanically known as tanacetum annuum). This steam distilled essential oil has a striking blue hue which is 100% natural and comes from the chamazulene (also reffered to as azulene). The chamazulene has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making Blue Tansy an excellent ingredient for hot (rosacea), irritated (eczema)) and inflamed (acne) skin. It also contains a high amount of age-fighting anti-oxidants, making the stunning Blue Tansy quite the power-house essential oil. Because I love this essential oil so much, and because I believe in the positive skin healing capabilities it has, I have incorporated organically grown Blue Tansy into Oak & Ashland's Blue Nirvana Facial Oil. So cheers to Blue Tansy! I hope you enjoy this naturally stunning oil as much as I do.
