I discovered the blue tansy oil recently when a product from YBP cosmetics caught my attention. It is touted to be truly a magical oil that suits all skin types. Some of the benefit of blue tansy oil include nourishing dry skin, soothing inflamed and sensitive skin and also balancing the pH levels of the skin.
Blue tansy is originally a wild-harvested Mediterranean plant which is actually yellow in color and is cultivated mainly in Morocco. When it is steam distilled it turns into a deep, mesmerizing, and incredibly rich shade of dark blue that is simply stunning. The fragrant aroma, the deep rich blue is truly beautiful.

Apart from the listed benefits of blue tansy oil, here are some different ways to use blue tansy oil.
How to use blue tansy oil
To take advantage of blue tansy oil’s calming effects, try these methods:
In a cream or carrier oil
Like any essential oil, it’s important to dilute blue tansy before it touches your skin. If you have a bottle of pure blue tansy essential oil, you will need to use just one or two drops of it that has been diluted in your moisturizer, cleanser, or body lotion to help boost the product’s skin-healing effects. Alternatively, you can also use it with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil before applying it to your skin. While coconut oil is comedogenic and may not be suitable for oily skin, you can always replace it with a less comedogenic carrier oi like jojoba or marula.
In a diffuser
Need some relaxation or feelings of encouragement? Use the blue tansy oil in your diffuser. It is the perfect ingredient to soothe frayed nerves and promote calm and relaxation. Its undeniably sweet aroma is all that you need to unwind at the end of the day or kick start your day with loads of revitalizing and energizing fragrance. Many people find the herbal scent of blue tansy oil to be relaxing. To enjoy the fragrance in your home, place a few drops in a diffuser. Let the sweet aroma work its magic in your living spaces.
In a spritzer
Blue tansy oil when used as a spritzer helps to heal inflamed skin and sooth it. To make your own spritzer, take a glass bottle with a nozzle dispenser. Ideally use a 200 ml bottle. Add about 4-6 drops of blue tansy oil to 150 ml of distilled water. Shake the bottle to mix the oil and water before you spritz it. Avoid using an aluminum bottle as it can interfere with radiation.
Word of caution: Blue tansy oil, like most essential oils, should not be ingested or applied to your skin without diluting the oil first. Also, do not forget a patch test!
