What are the benefits of blue tansy?
Blue tansy is known as one of the most beautiful flowers. It is a small, dark purple flower with tiny white petals. Its leaves are usually green or grayish brown. They have five leaflets and they grow up to 1/2 inch long (1 cm). Their stamens are pink, but their pistils are yellowish-green.
The flowers are used in perfumes and incense. They are also used as a dye for fabrics.
They make wonderful tea decorations. Blue tansy flowers are very popular in Japan. The flowers were originally from China, but now they come from many countries including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.
How do I use it?
You can buy blue tansy flowers in your local garden center. You may also find them at natural food stores, health food shops, herbalists and even online. There are two types of blue tansy: the fresh flower and the dried flower. The dried flower is available at any nursery or garden store. If you want to use it right away, just throw some into a spray bottle and apply it directly onto your scalp using fingertips or a cotton ball. You can also boil some water, steep the flowers in hot water and let it cool before you apply it to your hair.
If you want to dry your own flowers, cut them when the petals start to wilt and hang them upside down in a dark place with good ventilation. Within a week they should be dry.
You can take them out of their stems and grind them into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle or a rolling pin on a clean sheet of paper.
