Absolute oils are the essential oils which are highly concentrated and have high potency. These Concentrated absolute oils have high aromatic properties thus they are majorly preferred in cosmetics, perfumery, and aromatherapy. During the postproduction processes these oils are further concentrated to make their absolute.

Tagetes minuta (T. minuta) is a tall upright marigold plant in the sunflower (Asteraceae) family. Tagetes species originally has been used as a source of essential oil (extracted from leaves, stalks and flowers) for the flavoring in the food industries. The powders and extracts of Tagetes are rich in the orange-yellow carotenoid and are used as a food color for foods such as pasta, vegetable oil, margarine, mayonnaises, salad dressing, baked goods, confectionery, dairy products, ice cream, yogurt, citrus juice, mustard and as colorant in poultry feed. T. minuta is also extensively used medicinally as a condiment and herbal tea in a wide variety of fields in its native region and as a popular traditional folk remedy and in the complementary and medical therapy. T. minuta has several medical benefits such as remedy for colds, respiratory inflammations, stomach problem, anti-spasmodic, anti-parasitic, anti-septic, insecticide and sedative. It is used for chest infections, coughs and catarrh, dilating the bronchi, facilitating the flow of mucus and dislodging congestion and can be used in cases of skin infections. It also has a healing effect on wounds, cuts, calluses and bunions. However, such practices are largely based on folklore and train of traditional medicine rather than evidence-based research.

The whole plant is anthelmintic, antispasmodic, aromatic, diaphoretic, diuretic, purgative and stomachic. It is used internally in the treatment of gastritis, indigestion and internal worms. Externally, it is used to treat haemorrhoids and skin infections. The plant is harvested when in flower and dried for later use.

Essence of Tagetes Oil

Tagetes essential oil has a strong, warm, sweet-herbaceous, distinctive ketonic (pungent) aroma with a very powerful fruity undertone, reminiscent of green apple. Despite its unusual pungency, Tagetes essential oil is used extensively in French perfumes, although in minimal amounts. Tagetes essential oil contains about 47% ketones - accounting for its intense aroma and its benefits in respiratory uses.

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Safety Summary                        

·        Hazards phototoxicity

·        Contraindications (dermal) If applied to the skin at over maximum use level, skin must not be exposed to sunlight or sunbed rays for 12 hours.

·        Maximum dermal use level 0.01%

Organ Specific Effects                  

·        Adverse skin reactions: Undiluted taget oil was moderately to markedly irritating to rabbits. Tested at 2% on 25 volunteers it was neither irritating nor sensitizing. In one RIFM report taget oil was non-phototoxic. However, subsequent unpublished research by RIFM, using both oils and absolutes from Tagetes minuta and Tagetes patula, apparently did find distinct phototoxicity, and indicated similar phototoxic potential for taget oils and absolutes. A noeffect level of 0.05% for phototoxicity was determined on humans using Egyptian T. minuta absolute. T. patula oil was reported to cause ACD in an aromatherapist. However this was not an essential oil it was an acetone extract, and it was never established that the extract had even caused the reaction.
