Blue Tansy Oil: the Next Big Beauty Secret

It seems like there’s a “next big thing” every few weeks in the beauty industry. Where most come and go in the blink of an eye, some trends like activated charcoal and shampoo bars are here to stay. 

Blue tansy oil is skincare’s next big secret. Not only is it an ideal ingredient for face oils and serums, but it also has a variety of uses as a natural remedy. Today, we will discuss what makes blue tansy oil unique, review some of these uses, and how you can incorporate blue tansy essential oil into your daily skincare routine!

What Makes Blue Tansy Oil so Special?

Earlier this year, we wrote an article: Ingredients With a Purpose: Blue Tansy. Why Your Brain and Skin Love it. There, we discussed how blue tansy oil is sourced, the origins of the name blue tansy oil, and much more. 

The most important points were what makes blue tansy oil so special as a skincare ingredient. Blue tansy oil has special properties as an aromatherapy agent which have been shown to have both relaxing and anti-inflammatory results. 

A more common example of a relaxing aromatherapy ingredient would be lavender essential oil. Blue tansy oil works in a very similar fashion, creating an overall experience which not only treats the skin (more on this below), but relaxes the body and may even benefit lung health.

Blue Tansy Oil Benefits For Your Skin

So you might be saying: “aromatherapy is great and all, but how will blue tansy oil benefit my skin health?” Here are a few high level benefits of using blue tansy oil as a skincare ingredient:

Anti-inflammatory properties:anti-inflammatory skincare ingredients can reduce swelling and have a visible anti-aging impact on skin. Anti-inflammatories may also increase blood flow and lead to better overall skin health.

Antioxidant properties:free radicals can combat the effects of free radicals and stress on the skin. Antioxidants found in blue tansy essential oil are a great way to fight these free radicals and naturally rejuvenate your skin!

Low comedogenic rating:Blue tansy oil is naturally light and is less likely to clog pores than other oils. This is ideal for a product you use on a daily basis to keep skin healthy and refreshed.



Incorporating Blue Tansy Oil Into Your Skincare Regimen

An all natural blue tansy face oil can be easily incorporated into your skincare regimen in a number of ways. We recommend the following general guidelines when using a face oil in your skincare routine:

  1. Cleanse First:the first step in any solid skincare regimen should be gently cleansing away any impurities which have accumulated during the day or overnight. Natural products like an unscented shea butter soap bar are ideal for cleansing without stripping away skin’s natural oils.
  2. Exfoliate: exfoliation should not necessarily be done daily, but should be part of your regular routine. Consider a charcoal salt & sugar scrub or our blue tansy face mask for clean, healthy skin.
  3. Tone and Rejuvenate: this is where face oils and serums come into play. Now that your skin has been cleansed, it is time to give skin the nutrients it needs. Our blue tansy face oilcan be used here before moisturizers and/or makeup lock in skin moisture.
  4. Moisturize: using a high quality moisturizer should be left to last in order to reap the full benefits of each skincare product. Using a moisturizer sooner may create a water barrier on your skin, preventing the absorption of additional skincare and/or cosmetic products.

Blue Tansy Oil FAQs

Is Blue Tansy Oil different from Tansy Oil?

Yes, tansy oil and blue tansy oil are two distinct entities which are similar, yet quite different. Tansy oil is not recommended for use as an aromatherapy ingredient or for direct skincare. This is, of course, quite different from blue tansy oil which is both safe and effective on the skin.

Can I be allergic to Blue Tansy Oil?

Blue tansy oil has a very low chance of producing an allergic reaction, with some sources even claiming that it is hypoallergenic. However, as with all potent ingredients, be sure to use any blue tansy oil products as directed. Too much of a good thing is a real concept!

How does Blue Tansy Oil work in aromatherapy?

Blue tansy oil works to relax the body and mind with its unique properties. Our sense of smell is the most directly linked to our brain and our centers for emotional response. Certain smells may remind us of a childhood event or even a specific location.

Aromatherapy utilizes this connection to gently calm our minds and bodies.
