How Does Blue Tansy Relax Soothe Skin and Relax Your Mind?
What is so special about blue tansy? Thanks to the presence of chamazulene, a powerful antioxidant, blue tansy essential oil is deeply calming for the skin and the mind.
Blue tansy is a tiny, bluish-purple flower that is cultivated mainly in Africa, on the Mediterranean coast in Morocco. Tansy oil has a deeply sensual and earthy scent that is also slightly herbal and sweet.
This aromatherapy benefits your nervous system as well as your endocrine system. Your endocrine system is a network of glands and organs that work with the hormonal system to control many functions. These functions include your body’s growth and development, its natural response to injuries, and your current stress and mood. When your endocrine system is relaxed, healthy and balanced, you are more able to manage oxidative stresses in your body. When it is out of balance, your skin reacts to stress by breaking out in acne, or even eczema or psoriasis.
Blue tansy essential oil is one of the “spiritual” essential oils, like frankincense, that is used with meditation and stress reducing activities, to promote peace and wellbeing.
This oil is soothing for your skin and your mind. In addition to smelling wonderful, it is rich in α-bisabolol, which helps other ingredients penetrate the skin. Working at the cellular level, it is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, and helps relieve heat. It aids the body’s fight against bacteria and may help soothe redness. It has emerged in recent years in skin care as a means to help congested pores or acne.
Blue Tansy essential oil is loosely related to chamomile, as well as to the Common Tansy, but those plants produce very different essential oils from a skin care perspective, with different chemistry and different active properties. Don’t be fooled by inexpensive versions of this luxurious blue colored oil. Make sure you are always buying true blue tansy! Not only do you need the real thing in order to get the benefits, but when you buy authentic, organic and certified true blue tansy oil you are supporting the hardworking farmers who grow it.
Why Fair Trade Drives This Facial Oil
In addition to blue tansy essential oil,Serenity Balancing Blue Tansy Facial Oil is crafted with Baobab and Moringa oils, Fair Trade oils from Senegal and Kenya. These 100% virgin organic oils are wild-harvested and cold-pressed to preserve all of their therapeutic properties.
Our supplier of Baobab oil, in Senegal, is Social Responsibility Certified by the Swiss IMO (Institute for Marketecology). Total traceability is maintained from harvest to the finished product. The Baobab oil that they produce comes from trees that can be as old as 6,000 years, and new trees are planted to ensure the sustainability of this rare oil. Baobab oil works very well together with Blue Tansy essential oil, as it is highly penetrating, deeply nourishing and softens dry skin. It is known to restore and re-moisturize the epidermis.
From our Fair Trade partner in Kenya, we source organic Moringa oil. Moringa oil has a mild, oily, seed-like aroma along with an exceptionally smooth slip that instantly penetrates and lubricates the skin without leaving a trace. Like Blue Tansy oil, it has received global recognition for its skin strengthening properties, and protection of human skin from environmental influences and premature aging, while leaving the skin soft and silky.
Giving Back to the Community
In both Fair Trade cooperatives, female farmers and employees are in the majority, and certified social responsibility practices are documented from the start of the harvest through the end of production. Profits earned from both organizations are returned to the community through tree planting, health clinics, and girls' education opportunities. We feel that helping support Fair Trade not only helps the employees and their families, but also allows many girls to learn to read, which can literally change an entire community.
The Finest Organic Oils
When we set about creating this blue tansy facial oil, we focused first on finding the best Fair Trade oils that we could. Next, we focused on sustainability. This is where some of the other oils in Serenity get their chance to shine.
Prickly Pear Oil
Our prickly pear oil, for example, is a very rare and expensive oil, even more so than tansy oil. It takes almost eight tons of prickly pear fruits to produce one liter of prickly pear oil, which makes it one of the most costly oils to produce in the world. Ayr Skin Care deeply believes in sustainability, which is why we ensure that we purchase oil from crops that will be replanted, on farms that do not disturb native habitat.
Prickly pear combines powerful phytosterols and natural essential fatty acids, with high levels of vitamins K and E, that help reduce the appearance of fine lines, increase elasticity of the skin, and help gently fade acne scars—processes which are more effective in conjunction with the blue tansy oil’s role in calming the skin down first. Prickly pear oil also encourages the production of collagen, which declines in our skin as we age.
Camellia Seed Oil
Our organic camellia seed oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the camellia oleifera fruit. This oil was prized for centuries in Japan, China and Korea, and was used by Geisha for their beautiful soft skin. Much like jojoba oil, the composition of camellia seed oil is very similar to what our skin naturally produces to help keep it supple and hydrated. It is non-comedogenic, and penetrates deeply and quickly without a greasy feel.
Jojoba, Polynesian Tamanu, and Turmeric Oils
We also combine organic Jojoba oil with these Fair Trade and organic oils, along with Polynesian tamanu oil and another skin cleansing ingredient, condensed turmeric CO2 essential oil. These oils support the blue tansy essential oil in different ways, but the goal is a common one: calming, meditative relaxation that brings your body and mind back into balance.
Your New At-Home Spa Awaits
With Serenity Balancing Blue Tansy Facial Oil, we invite you to relax your senses and unwind from your day. We suggest using the treatment pump top to gently disperse a modest amount of oil onto your hands, rubbing your hands together to generate some warmth, and then pressing the luxurious oil into your facial skin.
As you press it into your skin, breathe deeply, and be transported to a secret forest, with a deep mysterious pool. Let the sound of the tree boughs sighing in a gentle breeze guide you away from all stresses and cares. Feel the pulse of your heart beating. Let go of what ails you, by realizing how very much more there is to the world, even in this one simple moment. It is the ultimate relaxation, a truly meditative way to begin and end your day.
Tansy oil, and our Serenity oil as a whole, is good for all ages, but it is particularly good for skin that requires oil balancing, or those who have dry, sensitive or acne prone skin. If you have more mature skin, you may begin your ritual with Serenity, allow it to sink in for a minute, and follow with a pump of Pure Moisture Nourishing Face Cream in the morning, or Restore Replenishing Night Cream in the evening. Take your time, don’t rush, and enjoy the moment! You deserve it.
