Tarragon - We use it for: Inducing appetite, toothaches Magickal: Compassion for others, but not at the inappropriate sacrifice of one's self. Useful for caretakers, helping to extend love and nurturing without becoming martyrs. Helps abused women reclaim their strength and independence. Used in consecration of chalices. Tarragon is sacred to the feminine aspect of the Universe. In particular it is used to invoke Lillith, and may be used in kitchen magick to calm, nurture, and make the guests more compassionate to one another. It should be gathered after Midsummer, but before Michaelmas.
