Tagetes (tagetes bipinatal)

Tagetes oil is extracted by steam distillation from the leaves, stalks and flowers. It has a wild, sweet, fruity, almost citrus-like smell and is orange / red colour, and light/medium viscosity. Known in Africa as Khaki bush, it is now also grown in France and North America. It is a weed with green feathery leaves and numerous yellowish-orange carnation-like flowers. The leaves and flowers are commonly known as a good insect repellent and are often seen hanging from native huts to deter swarms of flies and mosquitoes.

The main chemical components of Tagetes are: tagetone, limonene, valeric acid and ocimene.

Aside from its use as an essential oil, Tagetes is incredibly versatile as an anti-parasitic, antimicrobial, spepsis preventative, and inhibitor of unwelcome biotic growth.

Septic is an infection caused by a bacterium called Staphylococcus Aureus. Tagetes essential oil is lethal to these bacteria and helps to get rid of septic infections.

Tagetes essential oil is an antibiotic and does not allow any biotic growth (growth of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, or other parasites, such as worms) in the body. It has been found to be very beneficial on open sores, ulcers, rotten wounds, and even gangrene. In some places, it is used to clean wounds and in a 5% dilution, tagetes oil has killed maggots in open wounds.

This oil can help you get rid of the most annoying or harmful parasites on or in your body such as mosquitoes, fleas, lice, bed bugs, keeping them away and neutralising the effects of bites and stings. It is also useful in stopping the growth of microbes and can also be employed in wiping out athlete’s foot, cholera, septic, tetanus, typhus, malaria, skin diseases, and dermatitis.
