OVERVIEW:

Tarragon is an aromatic member of the daisy family. It's also known as Little Dragon referring to the plant’s extensive root system, which resembles a network of sprawling serpents or dragons. Tarragon is widely used in French cuisine for its sweet, anise-like flavor and is the star ingredient in the well-known Béarnaise sauce. It’s a versatile spice used as a seasoning for eggs, soups, sauces, vegetables, fish, chicken, salad dressings and herbal vinegar.

 

Tarragon has been used to treat pain for a long time in traditional folk medicine. It has many impressive health benefits due to its nutritional properties like manganese, iron, and potassium. Tarragon has strong effects on the nervous and digestive system which may help overcome things like toothaches, digestive issues, bacterial infections, menstruation issues, and insomnia.
