Tarragon is a versatile herb that appears to contain preventative substances for cancer and possibly some viruses.  It can be made into a Tea that is particularly effective when used with Lemon Balm for prevention of the flu or herpes.  Make the tea with Lemon Balm and then add one teaspoon of dried Tarragon.  Let this steep for 15 minutes or so before drinking.  Take up to 3 cups per day.  For herpes sores, use the Lemon Balm tea bag directly on the lesion.

Tarragon is also effective for eliminating intestinal worms in children.  Follow the directions for Herbal Teas and give 2 cups per day.  Teas can also be used for menstrual cramps, stomach cramps, digestive problems, fatigue, nerves, and to promote the appetite. Alternatively, Capsules can be made using dried, powdered leaves for situations where making teas is not convenient.

For toothaches, try chewing on a couple of Tarragon leaves for relief.  Tarragon can also be used in place of salt for people on salt-restricted diets.

Crushed Tarragon leaves can be used on minor rashes and skin irritations for relief of the symptoms.
