Tagetes {Marigold} Essential Oil (Starwest)

  • Tagetes, or marigold oil, is to be used carefully as a powerful topical treatment, or diffused for a lovely floral aroma.

    Oil of tagetes is thought to have a positive effect on skin infections and small weeping wounds. Tagetes boosts the respiratory system by dilating the bronchi and facilitating decongestion, thereby assisting in cases of cold and flu. Both the plant and oil are used for pest control and as an insect repellant, and the herb is also used to treat hemorrhoids.

    Strongly aromatic, this deep orange tagetes marigold oil has a heady floral bouquet with citrus-like fruit notes and bitter undertones. Often confused with calendula oil, tagetes essential oil is used therapeutically as an anti-fungal agent and for respiratory support.
