Mexican Tagetes lucida or Tarragon has a very mild anise flavor and a sweet taste. In Mexico, it is traditionally used as a tea to calm stomachs, relax nerves and to alleviate the symptoms of a hangover. But it is also used as to flavor soups, sauces, chicken dishes, etc., as well as harsh Turkish tobaccos.
A strong Tagetes lucida tea is said to produce similar closed-eye-images as peyote or a very mild state of euphoria.
The herb is also used to relax the stomach and to feel better after consuming large quantities of alcohol.
Use 1 - 2 grams as tea.
