Tarragon French – Artemisia dracunculus
Origin: France
Family: Asteraceae
Part used: Leaves and flowers

Tarragon grows to 120–150 cm tall and sports clusters of small yellow flowers. It is a perennial herb that thrives near rivers. It is a strongly aromatic and flavourful plant used widely as a cuilnary herb due to its unique aniseed/pepper flavour profile. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves and flowers. It is widely used to help with decongestion, circulation and hormonal issues.

Tarragon is probably best known for its contribution to French cuisine, but it has also been long established as a curative herb. It was once believed to cure the bites and stings of venomous beasts and rabid dogs. In France, where it is widely appreciated, women will include it in their diet to help regulate menstruation. It was first called ‘Estragon’ and was introduced into Spain by the conquering Moors. It is reported to have antispasmodic, circulatory, digestive, stimulant, vermifuge and deodorant properties.
