Tarragon is apparently a must in French cooking, but it might lower high blood pressure.  It stimulates the appetite and aids in digestion.

I have noticed a tingling or numbing sensation when I eat the raw leaf, which suggests to me that there might be possibilities of using it as a topical anesthetic.  One book did suggest that the root can ease toothache (placed against the tooth).  This is one of those herbs that's not mentioned in most books.

Interactions:  I don't know of any, but I'll be sure to update the post when I get my drug interactions book back from the neighbor who borrowed it.  :)
