In ancient cultures Tansy's strong antiseptic properties meant it was used to preserve the dead, it is believed to arrest decay and it's name derives from the Greek athanatos which means immortality!

Tansy has a strong aromatic flavour with yellow brass button flowers. Flavour is a little similar to rosemary.

Tansy makes good insect repellent. Dried flowers and leaves can prevent the ingress of ants and other pests into your house. Crumpled leaves and flowers, even dried, will keep flies away in the kitchen and larder!
