Tansy is Used for...because of its strong smell, tansy is a natural insect repellent. From the middle ages it has been scattered across floors to keep pests away. It can be used as a natural moth repellent. Hang bunches in closets, pack in boxes with stored clothing or hang up dried bunches to repel moths. Scatter dried power in carpets to get rid of fleas. In olden days it was also used in mattresses and between sheets to discourage lice, and maybe bedbugs?
Organically grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, etc
Tansy can be toxic if taken internally. I don't Particularly suggest internal use.
these are leaves and flowers and some short stems.
NOTE: I have both COMMON TANSY (Tanacetum Vulgare L.) and CURLY TANSY ( Tanacetum vulgare var. crispum) they have the same uses, mainly to repel insects, etc.

For the most part unless mentioned otherwise, each tea bag will make 2 cups of tea; one ounce of just an herb is about a sandwich bag, and sometimes a little more. If an ounce of herb tea it would be about 1/2 a sandwich bag. If it is a root herb such as burdock root it is heavier, thus an ounce would be about a quarter of a sandwich bag. Comfrey, plantain and nettle leaves would be in a quart size bag.
