Therapeutic Use: Blue Tansy Essential Oil is one of the best essential oils to have in your natural medicine chest. As one of the most powerful anti-histaminic / anti-inflammatory oils it is the perfect choice for spot treatment of any inflammatory issues, as well as being one of the best choices for your bath and body products geared toward healing skin and preventing, or treating, inflammation. As one of the blue oils, it may be used as a more cost effective source of chamazulene. Blue Tansy is also well know for its anti-histaminic activity, where it is said to modulate histaminic response, and many aroma therapists carry this oil for contact irritation / reactions.
Fragrance Impact: With its warm, sweet, floral notes Blue Tansy essential oil is a great addition to any blend designed for a soft, exotic, appeal where it will smooth out the sweetness, giving the blend a deeper floral impact.
