It regulates metabolism, circulation, functions of the nervous system, respiration, excretion and functioning of the human brain. Improper blood circulation and toxic accumulation in the body are the two major reasons behind arthritis and rheumatism.
Gently massaging your body with 3 to 4 drops of tarragon essential oil blended with mild carrier oils like coconut oil gives warmth to your body and aids in controlling vata imbalances like poor blood circulation, while promoting the discharge of toxic accumulations through urine with its diuretic properties.
You can also use Tarragon essential oil as a warm compress or add few drops to your bath tub for treating pain and inflammation associated with rheumatism.
