Hot Ingredient: Blue Tansy

What exactly is Blue Tansy?

Blue Tansy is a botanical essential oil with a fresh and herbal scent. It gets a deep blue color from a component it contains called Azulene, and is extracted from the plant through steam distillation. It only takes a few drops of this potent oil to do its magic...

What does it do to my skin?

Blue Tansy is anti-inflammatory, so it soothes red, irritated, and inflamed skin. It's great for combating blemishes thanks to its antibacterial properties. It clarifies the complexion, making it look smoother and more even. It's also great for oily skin because it balances it without drying it out. 

How can I incorporate it into my skincare routine?

We include Blue Tansy in two of our favorite products: Blue Tansy Mask and Lapis Facial Oil. Use Blue Tansy Mask 2 to 3 times a week to gain a softer and clearer complexion. It's tingly and refreshing. Use Lapis Facial Oil day and night in place of a traditional moisturizer to hydrate and soothe inflamed skin.
