A marvelous specimen of Tagetes essential oil! The aroma of Tagetes bipinata, a hybrid variety grown in Madagascar, is exceptionally smooth, considerably sweeter and less green than other types of Tagetes (Marigold) oil. When visiting the distiller in Madagascar we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful color and smell of this hybrid growing in the tropical sun.

Known for insect repellent qualities and for treating several skin conditions, dermatologically the essential oil of marigold is said to alleviate skin conditions such as acne, boils and psoriasis. Tagetes essential oil is powerful and also phototoxic. According to Tisserand and Young (Essential Oil Safety) Tagetes essential oil should be diluted to a maximum of 0.01% for dermal applications to avoid risk of phototoxic reaction.

This premium quality organic Tagetes goes beautifully in natural perfume. Because the Tagetes hybrid bipinata produces a sweeter, less tart, more floral essential oil it is hands down the preferred choice of Tagetes for use in perfumery. The aroma does not tend to overpower plus it lends a delicious mouth watering fruity green apple note to accords!
