One of the more potent essential oils is Tarragon (Artemesia dracunculus). Due to its chemical structure, it is so strong that only one drop in two ounces of carrier is more than enough!
According to the Aromatic Wisdom Institute, tarragon is great for acute issues like coughs and muscle spasms. It also has sedative properties, making it helpful in cold and flu blends. It’s antispasmodic effects make it great for irritable bowel syndrome, as it calms spasms in the gut.
Because it is so strong, tarragon is not suitable for long-term use. If you do use it, make sure the oil is diluted and that you only use it for a few days in a row.
