Tarragon organic essential oil

Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus), also known as dragon or dragun, is a plant species of the genus Artemisia within the Asteraceae family It is used as a medicinal and aromatic plant. Tarragon is a perennial herbaceous plant or semi-shrub and usually grows to a height of 60 to 120 (20 to 200) centimetres. Artemisia dracunculus is widespread in Eastern Europe, Asia and North America from Canada to Mexico. In Eastern Europe, tarragon is found as a wild plant; however, it is said to have arrived there a long time ago from the Far East.

The infertile “French tarragon” (so-called variety Artemisia dracunculus var. sativa), also called “German tarragon” as a synonym, must be propagated vegetatively and is sensitive to frost. Propagation is by root division in spring and cuttings in summer. The 20 to 30 centimeter long shoot tips are harvested shortly before flowering, as this is when the essential oil content is at its highest. The main ingredient in tarragon oil is estragole, which is known to strengthen the digestive system.


In ancient Egypt, during the reign of Pharaoh Hatshepsut from 1490 to 1468 BC, perfumes and scented oils were highly prized and thousands of kilograms of different plant species (including tarragon) were distilled to produce scented oils. The scented oil was then burned in the Egyptian temples. The plants from which the scented oils were made each had a different meaning, depending on which deity they were assigned to. The statue of the god Isis was covered with the perfume oil of the tarragon plant. When the deity Isis was to be asked for a favor, the aromatic oil of tarragon was burned as a sacrificial offering.

Tarragon was already used as a herb and medicinal plant in China 3,000 years ago.
