Sacred Plants - Tagetes Lucida Tincture 1:10

Leaves & Flowers, Tincture, 10 Ml from Mexico (SKU 4468)

Tincture 1:10 made with flowers and leaves of the Tagetes Lucida plant. The Zapotecs use Tagetes as a primary herb in purification rituals. The plant is popular with the Tarahumara Indians of Chihuahua and is used by the modern Huichol Indians in their religious Peyote (Lophophora williamsii) rituals. The botanical genus name Tagetes is in reference to a Roman deity, Tages, which probably was originally an Etruscan god of prophecy. The species name lucidus means "bright", or "light".

Packed in 10 ml Miron glass bottles with pipette.



Tagetes Lucida or Mexican Tarragon, Compositae (Sunflower family), is an attractive landscape ornamental, a beautiful, bright green perennial herb. Mexican tarragon is originally from Guatemala and the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It is a half-hardy semi-woody sub-shrub that grows 50-100 cm tall. The plant is bushy with many smooth, upright, unbranched stems. The leaves are linear to oblong, about 7 cm long, and shiny medium green, not blue-green as in real French Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus). In late summer Mexican tarragon bears clusters of small yellow flower heads on the ends of the stems. The flower heads are about a half inch across and have 3-5 golden-yellow ray florets. They continue to bloom late into autumn.
