What is Tarragon?
One can typically find tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus) growing alongside rivers and streams in France, Hungary, and North America, its slender, glossy, silver-green leaves catching the sunlight while its rhizomatous root system coils underground like a sleeping dragon. Also known as estragon and dragon wormwood, tarragon’s Latin name means “little dragon” thanks to the unique serpentine shape of its roots. A perennial herb, it’s a member of the sunflower family and can reach a height of 3 feet.
Tarragon has been cultivated for centuries and has long been a popular spice in Italian and French cuisine (where it is often referred to as the King of Herbs). The ancient Romans chewed tarragon leaves to support their oral health, while Native Americans burned its branches to ward off pesky mosquitoes. An herb of multiple uses, tarragon has long been used in Ayurveda to promote a sense of clarity.
Tarragon Essential Oil
Steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops, tarragon oil’s aroma is spicy and herbal with bracing anise-like undertones. The oil may solidify over time, but can easily be liquefied by soaking the bottle in warm water. In aromatherapy, tarragon oil can be balancing and uplifting, helping to instill a sense of positive energy.
Blending essential oils opens up a world of aromatherapy possibilities! Other oils that complement tarragon oil’s herbal, spicy fragrance include: basil, cistus, galbanum, lavender, pine, and vanilla oils.
Piping Rock's pure Tarragon Oil is available in 1/2 oz. bottles.
