Recently, I was researching what essential oils help with allergies. I stumbled on Blue Tansy. I wondered, “What is Blue Tansy essential oil used for?”
I never heard of it, but the more I read, the more I liked it. It’s a rare essential oil and you do have to be careful when purchasing to make sure it is real pure Blue Tansy. The real one provides natural allergy relief surprisingly. My husband suffers from allergies and I’m starting to as well. And my two kids suffer slightly from allergies as well. We’ve tried medications, but don’t like the side effects. Ever since we were introduced to essential oils though, we’ve found so many uses for the oils. My husband currently takes the allergy shot and that works for him most days. But some days he needs something a little bit more. And that’s why I was doing research and that’s how I stumbled on Blue Tansy essential oil. I’m an affiliate of Plant Therapy and was very pleasantly surprised when they started offering it for sale. On Plant Therapy’s site, it said that Blue Tansy essential oil is seasonal and supplies are limited as Blue Tansy requires optimal conditions for growth.
What Is Blue Tansy Essential Oil Used For?
The first and foremost reason for me getting Blue Tansy is its strength in relieving seasonal allergies. But that’s not all that Blue Tansy essential oil is good for. Here’s a list of uses for Blue Tansy essential oil.
- Allergy relief
- Supports self-esteem
- Soothes skin
- Bug bites
- Eases arthritis
- Reduces anxiety
- Stimulates digestive system
- Insect repellant
Do not use Blue Tansy essential oil if you suffer from epilepsy or Parkinson’s disease due to its high camphor level.
Also, don’t ingest it and always dilute.
If you are taking medications, Blue Tansy may interfere.
Did You Know? doTERRA’s Deep Blue Essential Oil Blend Has Blue Tansy!
I didn’t know this, but I always wondered what gave Deep Blue it’s beautiful blue color. Well, the other day, I happened to read the ingredients and Blue Tansy was in it! No wonder it works so well! I told my husband he has to try breathing it in next time his allergies are bad.
Where to Buy Blue Tansy
You can purchase true Blue Tansy essential oil from Plant Therapy and you can buy the Deep Blue from doTERRA on Amazon. Here are the links (affiliate).
Please refer to this dilution chart when diluting your essential oils. It is recommended that you dilute any essential oil that you use regardless of brand. Essential oils are strong and very potent and many can and do cause skin sensitivity, especially with children.
Plant Therapy has this awesome dilution chart you can reference.
For babies, dilute at 0.5% or even 0.25% (half of the 0.5% amount. So, use 3 drops of your essential oil and dilute it in 4 teaspoons of carrier oil for 0.5% or 8 teaspoons of carrier oil for 0.25%.
Use the 1% dilution ratio for daily use. Mix 3 essential oil drops for every 2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
If you need a stronger dose for a short period of time, use the 5% dilution ratio by adding 15 essential oil drops for every 2 teaspoons of carrier oil.
For really, really severe situations, you can up it to 10 percent dilution ratio for small acute areas of concern. For this, you would mix 15 essential oil drops for every teaspoon of carrier oil.
Recommended Essential Oil Brands
Because essential oils have therapeutic properties that make them so useful in our lives, you want to make sure that the essential oils you purchase are pure and contain all of the healing components that you are looking for. Unfortunately, there are some unscrupulous companies out there that sell diluted oils or even fake oils that will do you harm if you use them for therapeutic purposes.
The companies that I recommend and who consistently receive positive reviews on their essential oils are these:
