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.

Aromatic Scent:Tarragon has a richly sweet, anise-like (black licorice), green scent with spicy tones.

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.
