The Mexican tarragon is not only a decorative garden plant, but also a spice and medicinal plant.

It can be eaten raw or cooked, or prepared as a tea or smoked mixed with tobacco.
It is considered in folk medicine as a light natural sedative that helps with anxiety and asthma.
In addition, Pericon is used in the treatment of hiccups, diarrhea and rheumatism.
Furthermore, the plant is also used as a natural painkiller.
