Safety & Shelf Life
Safety & Warnings
Essential Oil Safety by Tisserand and Young (second edition), shows research confirming Tarragon's estragole (methyl chavicol) content causes genotoxicity is all based on high oral doses. The oil may have a hepatotoxic effect when used on the skin on a daily basis. Use only for acute situations, and for short periods of time. Tarragon is considered safe when used on the skin in very small doses of 0.1%, and only occasionally. Methyl eugenol content may inhibit blood clotting. Estragole is not contraindicated for pregnancy, however, because of the antiplatelet aggregation activity, it is cautioned against breastfeeding, as it could pass into breast milk.
A Passion for Aromatherapy
Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.
I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.
