Tarragon Essential Oil is distilled from the generous, protective energy of the tarragon “companion plant.” Tarragon grows in sandy areas with little water in the soil and protects its surrounding plant neighbors from insects and decay. The dragon-like roots of this plant have been used for centuries throughout Europe and North America for culinary creations, muscle massage oils and breathing balms.

 

Used as a culinary herb extraordinaire, Tarragon can be used in lieu of the fresh or dried herb. The aroma, a favorite of chefs, is sweet and spicy, with happy hints of anise and sage advice.

 

“The scent organ was playing a delightfully refreshing Herbal Capriccio—rippling arpeggios of thyme and lavender, of rosemary, basil, myrtle, tarragon; a series of daring modulations through the spice keys into ambergris; and a slow return through sandalwood, camphor, cedar and new-mown hay…  back to the simple aromatics with which the piece began. The final blast of thyme died away; there was a round of applause; the lights went up.” Aldus Huxley, Brave New World.
