syn: Winter Estragon, Pericon, mex. Tagetes

The Mexican tarragon is not only a decorative garden plant, but also a spice and medicinal plant.
The smell and taste are clearly reminiscent of tarragon with the typical anise note. Flowers and leaves are edible.

As a medicinal plant, Tagetes lucida was already used by the Atztecs.
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.
