Blue tansy essential oil is unusual and intriguing, known for its midnightblue color caused by the oil’s naturally high concentration in chamazulene. Blue tansy (Tanacetum annuum), also known as blue Moroccan chamomile, is an annual plant that grows to 40 centimeters in height, with yellow heads that bloom from August to October.
It should not be confused with common tansy, or Tanacetum vulgare, with larger capitula and denser foliage, a very neurotoxic plant due to its high thujone content.
This plant, native to the Mediterranean basin, gradually disappeared due to excessive harvesting in the wild. It has since been reintroduced and we offer an essential oil sourced in Morocco.

Blue tansy is an annual plant that is planted in February. It enjoys warm, sunny, dry, and marine climates. Crops are drip-irrigated twice weekly. Blue tansy plants are cut as soon as the flower buds appear. They are then immediately distilled by the producer, with whom we are in direct contact.
