How Does Blue Tansy Oil Benefit Skin?

Blue Tansy Essential Oil has several benefits for skin including calming inflammation, irritation, blemishes and redness and preventing free radical damage. 

What Are The Properties of Blue Tansy Oil?

Blue Tansy has powerful anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial & anti-fungal properties which can calm and smooth a range of skin concerns including eczema, acne, and sun damage.

The chamazulene in Blue Tansy creates its impressive natural blue colour. 

Blue Tansy Essential Oil has a very unique buttery, sweet and herbaceous scent.

What is Blue Tansy?

Blue tansy is a yellow-flowered plant from the chamomile family, Tanacetum Annuum, originating from Morocco. The naturally blue oil is steam extracted from blue tansy flowers. The blue colour comes from the compound chamazulene.

What Skin Type is it Good For?

This highly prized blue essential oil is soothing, calming and balancing for all skin types especially dry, mature, combination, irritated or acne-prone skin and dermatitis. Blue Tansy has truly impressive qualities for all kinds of skin concerns.

Irritated and Acne Prone Skin

It may seem counterintuitive to apply an oil to oily skin that’s prone to acne or blemishes. But the natural antibacterial and calming properties make it a winner for clearing and preventing blemishes and acne. Those with blemish and acne-prone skin are often surprised to discover the powerful calming healing and skin-clearing properties of this botanical blue oil.

Sun damaged and mature skin

Due to it’s high antioxidant content blue tansy oil protects skin against free radicals, meaning it’s excellent for skin that’s exposed to the elements like sun and pollution, especially aging skin that’s more vulnerable to degeneration.

Eczema and dry skin

Blue tansy oil can help calm and soothe irritation from eczema and very dry sensitive skin with its moisturising and balancing properties.

My Experience of Blue Tansy’s Benefits For My Skin

I first discovered this impressive blue oil several years ago and quickly became hooked! My skin is combination and fairly sensitive, and I’m in my 30s.

My personal experience has been that Blue Tansy Essential Oil has loads of wonderful benefits for my skin, particularly for treating spots, redness, sun damage, sunburn and wrinkles;

– Acne and pimples

I have found it shrinks pimples and blemishes overnight very effectively, more so than benzyl peroxide. Benzyl peroxide cream was the most effective treatment I had found to treat mild acne as a teenager and while it worked well at shrinking pimples, it is very drying and the ingredients didn’t fit with my natural approach to health and beauty as I got older. Blue tansy face oil is now my go-to treatment for the occasional breakout especially during pregnancy.

– Itchy irritated skin

I sometimes get irritation and itching on my arms, particularly the inner elbows. This sometimes used to get so itchy it kept me awake at night and became inflamed and irritated. I used a body oil containing blue tansy, and it was the only thing I found that helped! I had tried cortisol creams from the doctor and even they hadn’t helped, so I was delighted to find blue tansy oil helped this issue too!

– Sunburn and sun damage

I’ve had a lot of sun exposure and sunburn, and when I regularly apply blue tansy face oil I see a real improvement in the texture of the skin on my face, as well as crepey-textured freckled skin on my neck and chest which has had the most sun exposure. Blue tansy oil also really calms and cools when I get sun burn.

– Pregnancy

I used Lagoon Blue Oudh body oil on my tummy while pregnant and had no stretch marks at all! This award-winning body oil contains both blue tansy oil and yarrow oil, both of which contain chamazulene, as well as vitamin E, and other precious rare plant oils, so it’s a wonderful pampering product to use in pregnancy.

Now you can see why Blue Tansy is one of my favourite ingredients, and why it’s in several Azur Pure Skincare products. Just look for the blue! It’s the perfect fit for the Azur brand, protecting your precious skin and honouring our incredible blue ocean. Other natural blue ingredients in Azur products include Blue Spirulina, Blue Clay, Iris, Butterfly Pea, Yarrow & Blueberry.

Even without any particular skin concerns blue tansy is such a wonderful illuminating calming and smoothing oil to use on body and face. I hope you love it as much as I do. If you want to try it, all the products below contain blue tansy!
