Product Description

Tarragon Leaf 

Also Known As – Artemisia dracunculus L.

Organically Grown USA

Overview - Tarragon traces its historic roots back hundreds of years before Christ. Its use was recorded by Greeks about 500 BC; tarragon was among the so-called "simples", one-remedy herbs, used by Hippocrates. European gardeners knew tarragon in the Middle Ages, but it wasn't until the end of those dark times that it leaped the English Channel. It entered England during the Tudor reign probably as a preferred gift for the royal herb garden from the Continental monarch. For many years, tarragon was relatively unknown outside the royal garden. It must eventually have made good its escape, because it arrived on America's post-Revolutionary shores in the first few years of the 19th century.

Medicinal Uses - Relieves digestive problems and catarrhal difficulties, stimulates the action of the kidneys, and promotes the onset of menses. The tea stimulates the appetite, especially when it has been caused by illness. Taking the tea before retiring for the night helps overcome insomnia. Native Americans used leaf or root tea for colds, dysentery, diarrhea, headaches, difficult childbirth. Externally, leaves poulticed for wounds, bruises.

Other Uses – In ancient times, it was thought that tarragon could draw venom from bites of snakes and insects and in treating the bite off a mad dog (Rabies). Tarragon has a licorice flavor that is both sweet and slightly bitter. One of the important herbs in French cooking; indispensable. in bearnaise sauce. Tarragon adds zest to herbal combinations used to make liqueurs.

  1. Bravo on Organically Grown Herbs! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Oct 2015

    You can really tell the difference between store bought herbs and dried herbs grown by MMR. The smell is so fresh and the color is vibrant. Will definitely order again.

    If this store was closer to Pikes Place I would be visiting daily for fresh cut herbs and spices!!!

    Bravo on your organically grown herbs.
