Tagetes is known in Africa as 'Khakibush'. It is now grown in France and North America. The Tagetes plant is essentially a weed with deeply divided, dark green leaves with numerous ornamental yellowish-orange carnation-like flowers.
Tagetes Essential Oil is best known for its ability to keep insects away. It is also credited by aromatherapists as helping with parasitic and fungal issues, while also being able to facilitate the flow of mucous and loosening congestion. It has also been used on cuts, sores, and bunions.
After the Boer war in South Africa, Australian troops brought plants to their native land where it grew profusely
Please note, ORGANIKOS VALLEY does not recommend TAGETES OIL be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor certified in clinical Aromatherapy
