Artemisia, one of the larger genera in the family Asteraceae and the largest genus in the tribe Anthemideae, comprises from 200 to more than 500 taxa at the specific or subspecific level. Many Artemisia species have a high economic value in several fields, as food plants and as antihelminthic and antimalaria in medicine. Artemisia dracunculus, commonly called wild tarragon, is a polymorphic species that is native to temperate Europe and Asia. It is also found in western North America, though many of these populations may have resulted from introduction and naturalization. It produces viable seed and will often self-seed. Its leaves produce variable flavor and aroma, sometimes lacking both flavor and aroma. It has a long history of medicinal uses, but the species is not often used for culinary purposes. It is a rhizomatous perennial or sub-shrub that typically grows to 24” (less frequently to 36”) tall on generally erect stems clad with narrow, linear to lance-shaped, light to medium green leaves (to 3-4” long). Greenish white flowers in narrow elongated panicles bloom in summer.

Safety Summary

·        Hazards Potentially carcinogenic, based on estragole and methyl-eugenol content; inhibits blood clotting.

·        Contraindications Should not be taken in oral doses.


Organ Specific Effects

·        Adverse skin reaction Undiluted tarragon oil was irritating to rabbits, mice and pigs; tested at 4% on 25 volunteers it was neither irritating nor sensitizing. It is non-phototoxic.

·        Cardiovascular effects Tarragon oil inhibits platelet aggregation, an essential step in the blood clotting cascade.

Systemic Effects

·        Acute toxicity: Tarragon oil acute oral LD50 in rats 1.9 mL/kg; acutedermalLD50 in rabbits>5 g/kg.

·        Carcinogenic/anticarcinogenic potential Estragole and methyleugenol are rodent carcinogens when exposure is sufficiently high; (þ)-limonene displays anticarcinogenic activity. Tarragon oil was mutagenic in the Bacillus subtilis rec-assay, but not in the Salmonella/microsome reversion assay; DNA-damaging activity was found to reside in the estragole fraction of the oil. An Italian tarragon oil, with 60.5% estragole and 0.5% methyleugenol, was genotoxic in Saccaromyces cerevisiae strain D7.

·        Antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity Tarragon oil generally has weak antioxidant and radical scavenging activity.
