Mexican Tarragon is a well known herb in Mexico and Central America where it has been used for thousands of years! The Aztecs used Tagetes lucida in ritualistic ceremonies as incense known as Yauhtli. The plant is also used by the Huichol, combined with Nicotiana Rustica as a potentiation for other plant medicines. In Latin America the flower is one of the symbols representing the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) celebrated annually. For example they are used as (“offerings”) or ofrendas in order to decorate and appreciate the graves of deceased family members in honor of their deaths. Being as it is a sacred plant it can be used for meditations, dream work, yogic practices and ceremony work of all kinds.
Suggested Use: Steep 1 tsp of herb in 2 cups of hot water for 3-5 minutes. Drink 30 minutes before bed for its dream enhancing qualities.
