Tarragon Oil

Artemisia dracunculus

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, tarragon oil should be well diluted at 0.1% in topical blends 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. Please review the safety information before using it.

Benefits and uses

The rich, green leaves of the Artemisia dracunculus herb create a sweet, almost anise-like, slightly spicy essential oil. In addition to helping relieve unwelcome muscle spasms associated with the digestive system, tarragon essential oil also helps soothe a spastic cough and other general muscle spasms that might occur in the body. This essential oil is also sedative and helps with sleep support. Often, we will use tarragon essential oil at night when we are experiencing a persistent or spastic cough, as it also helps promote a restful night’s sleep. Tarragon essential oil should only be used for short periods of time and in a 0.1% dilution, if used topically.

Emotionally and energetically, tarragon essential oil protects and calms. It can help strengthen the mind and spirit and promote a sense of calm, especially if one is dealing with shock from a particularly intense situation or event.

Safety & Warnings

The 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’s cautioned against breastfeeding, as it could pass into breast milk.
