  • I just a huge order a couple days ago and felt like I was missing something I’d recently looked at, that I could use for a pain blend and an allergy blend.
    Well now I know, it was Blue Tansy! I just stumbled across this post and now I sooo regret not buying it when I had the chance!
    Can’t wait to get my hands on it next time it’s on sale!

  • I enjoy the scent of blue tansy, but it doesn’t agree with me, it seems to make my allergies worse, or makes my throat scratchy. I was told if you have a rag weed allergy this can happen. Jealous of people this doesn’t happen too because it is a nice smelling oil. Also bummed it seemed to have stained my diffuser when i used it in a blend, any hints how to get this out? Thanks

    1. I’ve heard a lot that soaking the water tank part in white vinegar for a while and then wiping clean helps to get stains out, but I personally haven’t needed to try it yet

    2. It stained my diffuser also, but diffusing lemon made it clean again:) I agree the scent is heavenly!

  • Recently I got this oil in my last purchase. My first pricey oil. Didn’t have plan to use this yet but when sniffle stopper n sneezy stop didn’t help much for my son, I didn’t blue tansy with Rosalina n sweet orange n it helped him breathe better with immediate stopping of dripping mucus. Didn’t care much for the smell and hoping to use it soon for a face serum but it did stain my diffuser badly.

  • Love this though hated the smell at first sniff but returned to it a month later & it smelled heavenly. Used in a face serum & it has helped alot. Had a infected cut on my finger that just wouldn’t heal (over 6 months), tried some blends for wounds/inflammation but it didn’t really help. One night forgot to bring it up to bed so I used my face oil instead & next morning over 1/2 the swelling was gone. My face mix was heavy on the blue tansy because I still can’t get the hang of getting just a drop at a time out of PT’s orifice reducers & it poured out before I could stop it. My face oil was very blue! But my finger is practically healed. I’ve been experimenting w/blends for scents & tried 1 drop each PT blue tansy, vanilla & German Chamomile with Cacao & Schisandra & 2 mls FCO, when 1st mixed it smelled great, few days later it smells like chocolate coconut! Not what I’d been looking for but it might be fun for those who likes Mounds bars! What can I mix it with for diffusing so it doesn’t stain the diffuser so badly? Thanks, I had bought a 2.5 ml and when you had make your own 6 at 15% I added this in.

    1. Try letting vinegar, vodka, or rubbing alcohol soak in your diffuser for a while and you should be able to wipe the stain right out 🙂

  • Should blue tansy be avoided if you have epilepsy? I see that it has camphor and I’ve read that anyone with epilepsy should stay away from oils high in camphor; however this oil is not on the list of oils to avoid if you have a seizure disorder.

  • I absolutely adore this oil! It’s so calming. We are a very active family, so come winter (when the kiddos can’t play outside as much) things get kinda crazy. I mean, some days, they’re literally almost climbing the walls. I’ve found that when I diffuse this oil with Chamomile German CO2 and a bit of Spearmint, they seem to mellow out and can focus on their school work much more easily, which is extremely important to this homeschooling momma. I’m not gonna say Blue Tansy is the cure for “cabin fever” but it sure as sugar helps!

  • The calming properties makes it an oil I would like to try. What would make one choose Blue Tansy over Lavender? Usually I got for Lavender when it comes to calming everyone in the home. Eager to widen my selection.

    1. Blue Tansy and Lavender share many similar qualities, such as both being fantastic for calming and relaxing. However, their aromas are very, very different! I’m going to link you to our blog about Blue Tansy so you can learn more if you’re interested: …you’ll find that many oils share similar therapeutic benefits, especially when it comes to oils that support emotional wellbeing. They each have their own unique traits though, with different smells, and different ways to blend 🙂 I hope this helps!

  • I have been so undecided about blue tansy. I love the spotlight discussions. I learn so much about the oil. And makes it easier to make up my mind about a purchase.

  • I received a free Blue Tansy during the sales in December and I’m hooked. This oil is amazing . One sniff straight out of the bottle and it clears any congestion or nasal itchiness right up. I also love the smell. I will often just pick up the bottle and breathe it in. The scent is not for everyone, though, as it is one of the few oils my husband dislikes.

  • thanks so much guys for teaching us all of this how to use blue tansy. I am really looking forward to purchase in the future.

  • Blue Tansy is a must have for me! I keep an extra at all times. A little goes a long ways, and I use it in rubs for aches and pains, diffusing blends for calming and wellness, and personal inhaler for a quick fix concerning anxiousness and headaches.

  • Blue tansy is one of my favorite single oil that I use in my personal inhaler. It smells very good and calm me down. I have one of the other company’s blue tansy, but because it is on sale, I am planning on buying one from PT so I have enough stock of it. Thank you, PT!!

  • So glad there’s 15% off right now. I have been wanting to purchase this but it’s pricey. I really need it for some blends for my chronic back and nerve pain. Can’t wait to get it! Super excited

  • I have Blue Tansy but am so hesitant to use it based on cost and i don’t want to waste it. I hear the best benefit is for seasonal issues so i’m going to stick with that. Thanks PT!

  • I’ve been wanting to treat myself to blue tansy for a while now. So glad to be able to get it on the spotlight special!

  • Thanks for providing this information about Blue Tansy. Now that it has the Spotlight discount, I’m excited to try it in an allergy blend!

  • Thank you for the informative blog! I’ve been on the fence about ordering, but the spotlight sale and great info convinced me! 🙂

    1. That’s awesome! This guy is a bit of a splurge, so the 15% discount really helps 🙂 This is the best time to get it!

  • Blue Tansy is one of my favorite uplifting oils – to me, it has a fruity scent, and it blends so well with citrus! I’m excited to see it featured as this week’s Spotlight oil.

  • This is on my wish list! I can’t wait to try it out in the future. I love that it’s known for it’s calming and clearing properties because I could use that often. Supports self esteem and encourages confidence and enthusiasm: is great for someone like me who is on a health journey.

  • I can’t wait !!! I love it in the let it go blend and I love the blue color…and I love the name Tansy…

  • Blue Tansy is one of my favorites! I love to use it as part of a face mask at 2%. Thanks PT for offerings it as an oil of the week!

  • This oil has been on my list for a while, and now that there’s a coupon- there’s no excuse for me not to get it!

  • I’m so excited this is one oil I have yet to purchase and after reading all the wonderful benefits. I will be ordering it. Hoping to benefit from calming properties.
