Beauty Trend: Why Blue Tansy Has Become A Staple In Skincare
When our founder, Bethany, first came to us with her brilliant idea to include blue tansy essential oil in a new product line, passionately touting its skin-healing benefits and repeatedly professing that she just wanted to bathe her whole body in it, she passed around this aromatic oil to have our team sniff-test it. But to be honest, I was not a fan. Like, at all. And I like everything.
However, the more I began to learn about the potent anti-inflammatory properties of this flower and started reading the reviews that flooded our website about the healing powers of this plant in our products, I knew I needed to put my scent preferences aside and get on the blue tansy bandwagon. And I am SO glad I did.
Because of its powerful aromatic + anti-inflammatory benefits such as soothing nervous tension + softening skin texture, I can now confidently say (in agreement with leading beauty + skin experts) that blue tansy is the oil you want to become a staple in your skincare – asap.
Perfect for sensitive skin, damaged skin and healing + preventing breakouts, blue tansy is incredibly soothing, minimizes inflammation and regenerates skin at a cellular level.
From aging to acne – and everything in between – blue tansy might just be the botanical your skin has been searching for.
This simple yellow plant (yup, yellow!) is native to Morocco and actually gets its bright blue hue during the steam distillation process. Its high levels of azulene, the naturally occurring component that gives blue tansy its deep blue appearance, makes it rich in antioxidants + skin soothing properties.
Being a part of the chamomile family, blue tansy is full of calming + soothing benefits for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and other inflammatory issues. From very sensitive skin + serious acne to severe dryness + even signs of aging, blue tansy treats a number of diverse skin needs.
What more could you ask for from a sweet little flower?
Its floral and slightly fruity scent is also bursting with therapeutic benefits to not only combat inflammation, but to calm your mind + boost your mood.
One of the many reasons we’re obsessed with blue tansy is for its holistic approach to healing – calming both stressed out skin and a stressed out mind. Think of sitting in bed, sipping a cup of chamomile tea (blue tansy’s sister-plant) – this potent essential oil has similar emotional properties to support peace + stillness within your body, mind and spirit.
Whether you slather on this body oil before falling asleep or dab a bit of this cream on your face, this multi-tasking oil makes the perfect scent to apply before bed to promote a calm mind, sound sleep and super soft skin.
Plus, by soothing stress levels and keeping cortisol in check, blue tansy can also support balanced hormones and a healthier immune system. Increased relaxation and regulated hormones? This plant has some serious superpowers.
We decided blue tansy also needed to become a staple in our natural deodorant collection.
Now that you know a bit of the background and the powerful anti-inflammatory benefits of blue tansy, it will make total sense why we’ve formulated our brand new Blue Tansy Deodorant.
From combating inflammation, calming irritations + itchiness, relieving redness and deeply nourishing the delicate underarm area (and its sky-blue color is just so pretty!), we knew blue tansy would make the perfect addition to our deodorant line. Plus its sweet, herbaceous scent powerfully controls unwanted odor.
