Tarragon has long been cultivated for its culinary and medicinal properties, at Nairian we produce our Tarragon Essential Oil through steam distillation.
Tarragon’s herbal and spicy aromatic properties are considered to be reminiscent of the astringent smell of Anise. Its stimulating essential oil is found within the long and thin leaves of this glabrous green perennial herb in the sunflower family.
Sometimes Tarragon is referred to as the “Little Dragon” plant, no one really knows why it got this strange name, but we do know the great number of health benefits it offers. While eating Tarragon is healthy (and tasty) in general, Tarragon Essential Oil is particularly powerful when it comes to healing.
Usually steam distilled, Tarragon Essential Oil is an anti-rheumatic, aperitif, stimulant and circulatory substance. That last point is key, because it means that Tarragon helps with blood circulation, regulating digestion and easing menstrual cramps. It can also help to relieve pain in the abdomen, fatigue, nausea, and tense nerves.
Nairian uses steam-distilled Tarragon Essential Oil in its Tarragon Soap.
