Description
Spicy and sweet, tarragon essential oil’s aroma combines notes of anise and basil. Its relaxing scent can help dissolve emotional and physical tension—especially in muscles. Tarragon is a strong belly oil! Due to its potent natural components (methyl chavicol), tarragon oil should be well diluted at 1% in topical blends (5 or 6 drops per 1 oz of carrier), and only used for short periods of acute need. Our certified organic tarragon essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of wild herbs in the fields and hillsides of France.
Suggested Uses

Relieve - Muscle Spasms

Ease a sore throat (from sudden bouts of coughing) with a low dilution of tarragon in a topical oil.

Digest - Queasiness

If you’re feeling queasy, blend tarragon into a carrier (with ginger and cardamom), and apply to your chest and belly.

Breathe - Cold Season

Diffuse a few drops of tarragon during cold season to help open your breath in the evening.

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.

Love, Karen
