Okay, so I admit the color was what first drew me in…the gem-like quality was almost hypnotic. My daughter had been injured on her face and I researched oils rather intensively to find the best one to help her heal both faster, and to prevent it from becoming a scar. This led me to the blue tansy oil, and over time, as she healed, with hardly a sign of her injury in a most miraculous way, the side effect was her complexion became clearer as well. I ended up putting both my husband and myself on the oil as well, and this stuff just works!!! The sandalwood in conjunction with it, is like the dynamic duo that calms redness that can appear as rosacea or just flat out high color in those who exhibit high emotion, like myself, because I have kids and life and stress happens to affect my skin color ;) (think Princess Diana who had to have green makeup on her wedding day to cover her redness from high emotion). At any rate, this works best used in very small amounts after first spritzing with a mist/toner of preferred type and then lightly patted in everywhere. In drier parts of the country, or wintertime with drier environments then more may be used, but in humid parts of the country, less will be more. Love, love, and more love!!!
