This oil is sometimes confused with common Tansy oil (Tanacetum vulgare), which is high in thujone, a neuro toxin. Blue Tansy Oil (Tanacetum annuum) is non-toxic because it contains no thujone and is a very powerful oil in aromatherapy.
Because of the high chamazulene content, Blue Tansy has a dark ink blue appearance that forms when the essential oil is distilled from the flowering tops of the plant.
