Tarragon Essential Oil

Tarragon is a perennial herb that thrives near water. It has a woody stem that reaches to about 1 meter (3 feet) high. The leaves are silver-green and covered with fine silky hairs and pale yellow flowers.


Botanical Name: Artimisia dracunculus
Origin: Turkey
Family: Asteraceae
Plant Part: Leaves
Extraction Method: Steam Distillation
Note: Middle
Colour: Pale to light yellow
Consistency: Thin
Aromatic Scent: Tarragon has a richly sweet, anise-like (black licorice), green scent with spicy tones.
Aromatic Strength: Medium
Blends Well With: Tarragon blends well with Lavender, Pine and Basil. Success blending may also take place with spice oils, though this may require some trial and error to preference.
History: The name is derived from the Arabic word Tharkhoum and the Latin word Dracunculus meaning little dragon - probably because of the way the root seems to coil up like a dragon.


Cautions: Tarragon oil is a non-irritant and non-sensitizing essential oil. Nonetheless, it can be moderately toxic due to the methyl chavicol in the oil. Therefore, it should be used in dilution and avoided completely during pregnancy.
Never use pure oils on the skin without diluting, never use internally, keep away from children and eyes, always check if there are any medical issues which could cause a problem. Seek help if you have any doubts.
