Tarragon Essence & Essential oil (1Lit)
Tarragon is called the “King of Herbs” by the French, and with good reason. It is the main flavoring in many of the sauces that form the foundation of classic French cuisine, such as bearnaise, rigavote and tartare. Tarragon was used by the ancient Greeks as a remedy for toothache. Today we know that tarragon contains an anesthetic chemical, eugenol, which is the major constituent of anesthetic clove oil, making its use for temporary pain relief understandable.
This may be one reason it is so frequently preserved in vinegar, which captures tarragon’s essence and creates a tasty condiment that can be used in dressings. Today We are exporting this pure Essence not only to Perfume industry but also as a component in pharmaceutical products. A cultivated hectare yields on average eight tonnes of fresh plant, which give thirty to fifty kilograms of essential oil, i.e. a yield of approximately 0.5%.
