In the last few years, a small flower that is known as blue tansy has started to become popular in the skincare community. It comes in a very beautiful and vivid shade of blue, therefore making it heavily enticing to me as I love the color blue. It is known to be both nourishing and able to calm your skin, making it a great oil to use in your skincare routine for your face.
What is Blue Tansy Oil?
Blue tansy oil actually comes from a yellow flower plant called Tanacetum Annuum. Originally, it is harvested in the Mediterranean wilds, however it is nowadays cultivated in mostly Morocco. Because of its Moroccan origin, some people might also know this flower as Moroccan Chamomile or Moroccan Tansy. The flower is actually yellow and when made into an oil, it gives off a nice sweet herbal scent.
Even though the flower starts off as yellow, the steam distillation process to make the oil turns it blue. When the flowers and stem are distilled, a chemical component of plant oil called chamazulene is released and turns the oil into a nice deep vibrant blue. This is why in all the skincare products with blue tansy actually comes out blue.
