doTERRA Blue Tansy is distilled from the flowers, leaves, and stems of the blue tansy plant, an aromatic Mediterranean plant in the daisy family with tiny flowers that grow in tight clusters. Surprisingly, the flowers are not blue but yellow. The oil’s rich blue color is due to its chamazulene content, which forms during the steam-distillation process. Chamazulene is relaxing and soothing to the skin.
doTERRA Blue Tansy essential oil is sourced in northern Morocco, where the subtropical climate and cooling ocean breezes create the perfect growing conditions for the plant.
Due to Blue Tansy’s dark color, this oil should be diluted prior to use to ensure it does not stain skin, fabric, or other surfaces.
