You might not have heard of Remedium Tagetes essential oil (Minuta) as it is a relatively unknown essential oil. However, it has several remarkable properties and is also extensively used in French perfumery due to its beautiful top notes. In addition, the sweet, floral, and somewhat spicy smell makes it popular in many cosmetic products, like lotions, rubs, and ointments.
How is Tagetes essential oil made?
Tagetes Minuta essential oil is extracted from the stems and leaves of the perennial herb Tagetes, which belongs to the Marigold flower family. The somewhat dark oil is obtained after distillation and yields only a kilo of oil from a bulk of 700kg of stems and leaves. This wholesome process is tedious and expensive, of course!
Remedium Tagetes Essential Oil: Its Growing Popularity
Due to its vigorous extraction process that yields minimal essential oil from an enormous bulk of herbs, Tagestes is not a very common or popular choice for oil extraction. However, it is a preferred choice for perfumery due to its distinctive sweet floral, slightly fruity, and citrusy with an undertone of intense aroma.
This blend of various scents makes it a great option to blend with all sorts of other scents to make extraordinary perfumes. You can mix it with almost all kinds of smells as it enhances their properties and aroma.
