It is little used in modern herbalism, though it is sometimes employed as an appetizer. The leaves (and an essential oil obtained from them) are antiscorbutic, diuretic, emmenagogue, hypnotic and stomachic. An infusion is used in the treatment of indigestion, flatulence, nausea, hiccups etc. The plant is mildly sedative and has been taken to aid sleep.
Loss Of Appetite,
Vitamin C Deficiency,
Fresh or dried leaves and stems usually included into culinary dishes.
Leaves – raw or used as a flavouring in soups
Estragon can be dried and used in marinades of meat dishes. Fresh Estragon has a volatile oil that is similar to that of anise which is lost when it is dried. Estragon is popularly made into vinegar which is an excellent flavouring for sauces but is not ideal for soups.
Estragon revolves around the legend that it is brought forth by the radish root or sea onion set in the ground.
While there are some ancient traditional medicinal uses for tarragon, its most common use is as a culinary herb. Used fresh, it imparts a spicy, minty licorice flavor to salads and egg dishes, as well as to cooked meats and poultry. It should not be used in soups, as the flavor is too strong. Because many insects dislike the smell and taste of tarragon, it can be useful as a companion plant to keep the garden pest-free.
Tarragon is safe in food amount and seems to be safe when used short-term as a medicine. Long-term use of tarragon might cause cancer, because it contains a chemical called estragole.
Estragon may trigger allergies among highly sensitive people.
