Blue Tansy - Essential oil
Format: 5 ml
Tansy, a plant with yellow flowers, is very often called blue chamomile, a name given to it by the rich presence of chamazulene, responsible for the beautiful & intense dark color of the essential oil obtained after distillation. Among its many benefits, it is a powerful soothing ally for the skin and can help fight spring allergies because it has antihistamine properties.1 Some studies have shown that the compounds present in blue tansy oil have a repulsive action.2 A beautiful essential at our service!
