I have been using Blue tansy for redness or rashes or itching, and it works great; the itching stops right away, and after one or two application the rashes are gone as well. It is a great essential oil to have.
I find this EO to be uplifting, expressing notes of joy and love.
So calming, helps to keep focus.
Love using this oil, it has many uses. My clients love the smell and feel.
Great for calming but not as strong smelling as I thought it would be.
