Tagetes erecta, also called Aztec marigold, is a species of the genus Tagetes.
The essential oil is often used in personal-care products because of its strong, sweet apple fragrance. For medicinal purposes it is also used internally to support digestion and externally to support healthy skin. Therapeutically tagetes essential oil is used for athlete's foot, bunions, calluses, chest infections, corns, coughs, fungal infections and parasites.
Tagete oil is produced in India, Egypt, Madagascar, Mexico, South America (Brazil) and South Africa and some other parts of Africa. Global production is estimated to be around 12 MT.
Tagete oil is unique and is often found in men’s fine fragrances, to support floral themes, where it blends well with many absolutes. Small amounts (usually under 0.1% in the concentrate fragrance compound) add some green, white floral and fruity notes.
Last year was a good season for tagetes oil. The new season has commenced and production is underway. If weather conditions are anything to go by, sufficient rainfall and cool weather will ensure that 2018 follows in last year’s footsteps. The market is well adjusted with the prices finely balancing the stock situation. More clarity is expected in coming months.
