  Tansy, Blue (Moroccan Chamomile)
Tanecetum annuum, organically produced, steam-distilled flowers, Morocco.


Finally, a “blue” oil with an aroma I can love! Please remember this is not the high thujone Tanacetum vulgare that grows wild in Utah and elsewhere and is often warned against for use in aromatherapy. This ANNUAL tansy is a safe and mild anti-inflammatory with a delightfully fresh, honeyed apple scent.

Kurt Schaubelt extols this magnificent deep indigo oil for its anti-histaminic/anti-allergen properties. He suggests using it (applied to the solar plexus) in blends for asthma, or diffusing it in blends for emphysema…blending Pine, Cypress and just a touch of this lovely Tansy Oil. He recommends a blend of three drops Helichrysum and two drops Tanacetuum diluted in carrier oil for any situation where the skin has been damaged…sunburn, radiation, etc. (This was the combination my friend Sylla used, in a water-based spray, to recover from the effects of radiation treatments.)

Jeanne Rose states that Blue Tansy Essential Oil is a natural source of theophylline, a bronchiodilator, which would explain its being recommended for asthma crises. And many sources write of the links between childhood asthma and adult eczema and other dermatitis conditions.

This delightfully sweet-scented oil with its high azulene content would be a wonderful alternative to German Chamomile or Yarrow in skin care blends. For irritated skin, try blending it with Helichrysum. Please use in weak dilutions, it is more effective at levels under 5%, than in stronger dilutions.
