Tansy is a hardy plant that does not require maintenance. It has pretty little golden yellow buttons. It thrives in poor, well-drained soils and spreads easily. It can be used for making manure to scare away harmful insects, especially aphids. By macerating its leaves and flowers for a few days, we obtain an effective natural insecticide to be sprayed on plants subject to attacks by insect pests.

It is also credited with medicinal properties, particularly for digestive problems and flatulence, and is said to have sudorific properties. However, it contains substances that are extremely toxic to humans and mammals. It should be used in very low doses.

It is recommended that you consult a licensed herbal therapist or other qualified health professional before using therapeutically.
