Safety and 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.

Taking a Class
I'm in the ACP class and loving learning about so many different oils. This one is new to me but consistently appreciate the high quality of Aromatic International oils.
Smells spicy and little like licorice. Perfect for settling my belly!
I have just started incorporating it in an anti inflammatory blend and am pleased with the results.
As I just received it I am trying it on a muscle spasm in my back, diluted with coconut oil. Love the scent, the slight Anise scent just pops out first & seems to be following me around. It seems to be rather quickly effective without that medicinal smell.
This oil is great in my pain management blend !
