Blue Tansy Essential Oil

Blue Tansy – Aanacetum annuum

doTERRA’s 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.

Who would have thought BLUE TANSY oil comes from a YELLOW flower?! 

Also known as Moroccan Tansy, Blue Tansy essential oil is emotionally uplifting. Applied topically, it soothes muscles and supports healthy skin.

You can make your own soothing lotion to apply after a particularly stressful day or tough workout by adding a few drops of this oil to your favorite lotion or moisturizer.


Blue Tansy, also referred to as Moroccan Tansy, is an annual yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant found in northern Morocco. Chamazulene, a chemical component in Blue Tansy, provides the characteristic indigo color and is recognized for its skin soothing benefits. At the same time, the main chemical component Sabinene helps diminish the appearance of blemishes. When diffused, Blue Tansy oil provides a sweet aroma to fill any room. It’s perfect for massaging into skin with fractionated coconut oil or lotion after a long day of work or intense exercise.


  • Add a drop of oil to one to two ounces of your favorite moisturizer or cleanser and apply topically to help reduce the appearance of blemishes or soothe skin irritation.
  • Include one to two drops of this oil in lotion for massage.

Directions for Use of Blue Tansy

Diffusion: Use one to two drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity or temporary staining.

Main Constituents

Sabinene, Chamazulene, p-Cymene, α-Phellandrene, ß-Pinene, Camphor

If you’re familiar with our Deep Blue blend, you know how soothing Blue Tansy can be to the body after a long day’s work or hard workout as it’s one of the main ingredients! A lot of professional athletes and weekend-warriors swear by this oil!

On a personal note: This Oil is a wonderful oil for your collection in supporting skin and emotions. So many of us reach for the Lavender and while it is a beautiful oil, Blue tansy is that secret little ingredient for me that helps calm me, lower my shoulders and help me move on with my day. We jokingly refer to this oil as the “smurf” oil as when applied topically it turns your skin blue, but like other oils with the chemical properties (like yarrow) which turn blue during steam distillation, this dissipates as it soaks into your skin, and the effect is wonderful. Remember the cautions mentioned above when applying topically, I always add it to a lotion or carrier oil.

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil

Roman Chamomile – Anthemis nobilis

This essential oil is calming to the body* and to the emotions. Its scent is gentle, yet strong. Roman Chamomile provides a truly soothing effect for the mind and body* as well as the skin.

Roman Chamomile has long been one of my favorite calming oils and in my opinion it isn’t overly floral in fragrance, which is why I like to use it in lotions and beard oils for my husband.

Usage Tips:

  • Add a couple drops to your herbal tea to make your own chamomile tea while simultaneously accessing the relaxing internal benefits.*
  • Rub into the feet to help soothe and calm a fussy child before a nap or bedtime.
  • Add a few drops into your favorite skin and hair care products to promote healthy-looking skin and hair with a floral, sweet twist in scent.
  • Diffuse Roman Chamomile, or a blend that includes it, during your bedtime routine to help ease your mind and body as they unwind and prepare for sleep. 

How Do You Use Roman Chamomile Essential Oil?

Sweet, floral, and herbaceous, the aroma of Roman Chamomile is soothing. Aromatically and topically it is soothing to the skin and emotions. You can apply Roman Chamomile to sensitive skin for its calming and relaxing effects. Isoamyl tiglate—one of the main chemical components of Roman Chamomile essential oil—promotes feelings of relaxation during times of anxiousness or discomfort, especially when used aromatically. You can diffuse it, apply it to pulse points, and inhale it from the hands to aid feelings of serenity and calm.

What Are the Benefits of Roman Chamomile Oil?

It is also soothing to the body systems when taken internally.* This is primarily due to the chemical constituent Isobutyl angelate. Experimental research suggests that it may help soothe the digestive and immune systems, as well as generally provide calming properties throughout the body.*

Human clinical research done with women in postpartum care found that a combination of Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, and Orange oil in an aroma-sitz bath or soap provided soothing properties. Roman Chamomile is also a part of the ClaryCalm® Monthly Blend for Women.

Where Does Roman Chamomile Essential Oil Come From?

Roman Chamomile essential oil is steam distilled from the flower of the plant. These flowers are daisy-like and smell sweet—almost like apples. There are several varieties of chamomile. The most common use of chamomile is in herbal teas, but it is also used for its fragrance in many perfumes and personal care products. 

A Personal Note:

After using essential oils in our home for well over 18 years it may be hard to believe, but I do have my favorites. You know what I mean? You can love them all but there are a certain few that just stick out and work with you or affect you in just the right way. Well, I can admit that Roman Chamomile is one of those oils. I personally like to apply it to the bottoms of my feet if I am overtired and need to take a rest. I personally find this oil very soothing and I think you may too.

Celery Seed Oil

Celery was used as early as the 5th century by the Chinese, and is widely used in Indian Ayurvedic practices today.

Conventionally grown grocery store celery looks nothing like the celery seen at local farmers’ markets.

The celery plant grows up to three feet tall, is bright green, and radiating with life. Celery has a complex, strong, sweet, and spicy aroma. The plant takes two years to fully mature and produce its small fruit, which are tan to brown in color. The seeds are the primary repository for essential oil.

Limonene, the dominant constituent, puts Celery Seed oil in the same league as the refreshing citrus peel and fir needle oils. Soothing digestive issues is one of the many benefits of Celery Seed essential oil.*

Experimental research suggests that it may soothe muscles and help joint discomfort when taken internally.*

The oil creates a calming, relaxing, and positive environment while providing cooling and soothing effects.


  • Consume one to two drops morning and night to promote healthy digestion.*
  • Soak in a relaxing, sleep-inducing Epsom Salt bath adding three to four drops to warm bath water.
  • Blend with Fractionated Coconut Oil for a soothing massage.
  • Diffuse to promote a positive and uplifting mindset.

Open Road Essential because:

  • Healthy Digestion
