Blue Tansy or Moroccan Chamomile (Tanacetum annuum ‘T. annuum’), is a beautiful yellow top flower, originally from northern Morocco. There are over 200 species of Moroccan Chamomile (Blue Tansy) in the Asteraceae family. Blue Tansy is regarded as the rarest form of Moroccan Chamomile because of its unique molecular profile.
Mother Nature gives us this beautiful, rare and unique plant to calm the senses and soothe the soul. When used in aromatherapy and skin care it delivers natural healing, soothing and calming benefits which are gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
The unique natural profile of Blue Tansy delivers the plant’s strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal and antimicrobial capability while creating the amazing scent and vivid colour. The beautiful blue colour and sweet fragrance comes from Chamazulene, a natural compound found in the plant. The plant also boasts various terpenes including myrcene, sabinene, b-eudesmol and camphor which enhance the profile and enable multiple uses.
Clinical studies have explored and identified the flower’s essential oil’s ability to inhibit fungal growth while delivering a higher profile of antioxidant activity than vitamin C. The strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects are derived from Chamazulene, the highest compound found in the flower. Traditionally, Blue Tansy was used by herbalists for skin conditions and for individuals suffering from allergies and pain.
It’s no wonder Blue Tansy is the hero of the entire Pod Organics collection. While offering a beautiful blue glow and sweet scent, it provides relief for ever changing skin conditions that involve redness, inflammation, environmental oxidative damage, allergy reactions, damaged skin or skin that simply requires soothing and hydrating.
The Calming Mist and Uplifting Mist containing blue tansy reflect traditional aromatherapy uses, such as calming of the nervous system, reducing nervous tension, promoting relaxation, assisting sleep and respiratory related illness during sleep.
The inclusion of Blue Tansy as the hero throughout Pod Organics products offers luxury, affordable skin care that is multi-functional and enables multi-purpose use for the entire family from newborn to those with a wealth of life’s experiences.
