Blue tansy oil, also known as Moroccan Chamomile or Moroccan Tansy, comes from a flower found in North Africa is known for its potent health and healing benefits.

Acne is caused, in part, from bacteria that has made its way to your skin. Using blue tansy oil kills acne-causing bacteria, preventing acne from developing or spreading. Tansy oil also contributes to the healing of scrapes, cuts, or burns that may be present on skin tissue.

Eczema and dermatitis, which are both common skin conditions, can be controlled with consistent use of blue tansy oil thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Anti-inflammatories help reduce and even remove flare-ups that may cause red, irritated and puffy skin.

Extracted from the seeds of grapes, typically wine grapes, grapeseed oil is loaded with powerful antioxidants and natural plant compounds known as oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes, or OPCs.

Unlike other moisturizers, grapeseed oil is free from synthetic ingredients and is packed with fatty acids and vitamin E, which help to lock in moisture. Vitamin E stimulates the production of cells that seek out and destroy germs and cancer cells. It also increases the production of B-cells that produce antibodies that neutralize bacteria.

Grape seeds have also been found to speed the healing of cuts and wounds by helping the body regenerate damaged blood vessels as well as increasing the quantity of free radicals at the wound site, which help to clear bacteria from a wound.
