Tagetes Essential Oil
100% Pure Tagetes minuta essential oil has a beautifully complex aroma that is floral, sweet, green and fruity with a subtle muskiness. Organically cultivated at Flat Creek Farm in Black Mountain, NC. In addition to being used in perfumery, Tagetes oil is also considered to be anti-inflammatory and anti-septic.*
Also known as “Huacate” or Southern Cone Marigold, Tagetes minuta is a South American native species of Marigold that grows up to an impressive 7 feet tall! It is traditionally used as a food flavoring, a bug repellant and as a treatment for surface wounds. The aroma is absolutely delightful and reminiscent of green apples.
Tagetes oil is considered to be photo-toxic and can irritate sensitive skin so it should only be applied topically in dilution and where exposure to the sun will be minimal. Please also note that the oil is a rich golden yellow color and will stain clothing.
