Here it is at last, and let's hope for a long time: its interest is immense when we know that conventionally grown tarragon is abundantly treated with pesticides. Organic quality, it should be remembered, is one of the fundamental criteria of a well understood aromatherapy. Precautions for use Do not use during pregnancy or breastfeeding, or in young children.
