Tarragon is part of the sunflower family.  Because of it's ability to numb the mouth, ancient

Greeks chewed the leaves as a cure for toothaches.  Tarragon promotes the production of bile by the liver, helping to rid the body of toxic waste.  It is also extremely valuable in treating intestinal worms.  Tarragon is best used fresh or as an essential oil, as the drying process destroys much of the natural health benefits.  Studies of the polyphenols in this herb show that it helps lower blood glucose.  It also helps inhibit blood platelet aggregation and so can help prevent strokes.
