It too is fantastic as an eczema treatment, healing all sensitive skin issues including dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema.
Several Different Blue Essential Oils
Blue Yarrow isn't the only blue oil. Blue Chamomile (also called German Chamomile), Blue Tansy (also called Moroccan Chamomile), and Blue Cypress.
The German Chamomile is also known as Matricaria Recutita in Latin. Its primary difference from the Roman Chamomile is the aroma. Generally, its aroma is less pronounced. This beneficial sensitive skin essential oil is a cousin of the daisy, known to be gentle and relaxing. It penetrates deep into the layers of your skin where its concentrated anti-inflammatory properties can restore and soothe irritated skin, burns, and other angry conditions. German chamomile oil has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties making it perfect for sensitive skin prone to inflammation, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and breakouts.
The wild healing properties of Blue Tansy Essential Oil stem from the azulene pigment that gives the oil its striking sapphire color. The high quantity of azulene gives Blue Tansy Oil the ability to heal burns, blisters, acne, boils, dermatitis, eczema, and rashes. As a tissue regenerator, Blue Tansy Oil is a soothing antidote to both wounds and wrinkles.
This oil hydrates the skin but takes away the excess sebum deposited on the skin. This way, it helps to cure acne. Because of its astringent activity, it is used to remove greasiness and excess oil from the skin.
