This unique ingredient not only lends to the blue color of this soap recipe it also provides exceptional benefits for the skin likely, why it’s found in many high-end skincare products.

What Does Blue Tansy Do For Skin?
If you have never experienced blue tansy essential oil, I can tell you it’s unique among essential oils. Derived from Moroccan chamomile, this oil’s rare rich blue color comes through during the steam distillation process. It simultaneously calms stressed skin and improves complexion. Notably beneficial for oily and combination skin types to combat flare-ups.

Does blue tansy stain skin?
Blue tansy essential oil does not stain the skin. But, it does need to be diluted, like most essential oils, before use. (Learn all about essential oil dilution in your guide here.)
I added blue mica powder to this soap recipe to amp up the blue color. Mica powder, clay, and spices are the only natural, non-toxic colorants I use for soap and bath bombs, and these don’t stain the skin either. To note, you can leave mica powder out, and the soap will still be blue.

1. Prep Soap Mold –

Promptly remove the melted soap base from the microwave and add 30 drops of blue tansy essential oil. Whisk the oil thoroughly into the soap using a metal whisk.
