If it keeps my skin youthful and glowy, you better bet it’s going into my skincare routine.
I’m totally on a quest to stay forever young when it comes to my face, and I want to do it naturally. A few years ago, there was a big trend with beauty companies introducing products containing Blue Tansy. It seemed kind of gimmicky and all of the products were this neat blue colour, and rather pricy.
Well, it turns out that I have a bottle of Blue Tansy essential oil – so what can I do to harness the anti-aging properties of this oil, and can I do it less expensively than Sephora?
Spoiler alert: yes I can.
Wait… so why use Blue Tansy on your skin?
- It’s calming, soothing, and anti-inflammatory to the skin.
- It’s packed full of antioxidants, which are key in maintaining youthful skin.
Blue Tansy oil is distilled from Moroccan Chamomile flowers. The flowers are actually yellow, but during the distillation process, a reaction occurs, and a compound called chamazulene emerges. This chamazulene (no, I didn’t make this word up) is an inky blue colour, putting the blue in Blue Tansy.
Let’s get to the good stuff, the:
Blue Tansy Skin Serum Recipe
- A 2oz glass bottle (dropper top, pump top, spray top)
- 10 drops Blue Tansy essential oil (I suggest this one)
- 10 drops Copaiba essential oil
- Jojoba oil
Add the essential oils to the bottle first, and then top it up with jojoba oil. If you prefer another carrier oil, go right ahead. Maybe you have other essential oils that love … there are no rules here.
I like to apply this serum once a week before I go to bed. Blue Tansy has a calming aroma that helps me get in the sleep zone. I also like to change up the oils I use on my skin, just to keep it fresh and guessing.
Note: Blue Tansy is an inky blue oil, and you might find that your face turns blue when you apply this serum. So maybe don’t apply it two minutes before you head out on a hot date mmmkay?
Wishing you glowy gorgeous skin,
