Tagetes essential oil, Madagascar, wildcrafted ■
NOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, please allow a minimum of 6 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Cancellations are not allowed because an item's not in stock. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk, essential and fragrance oils sold in 5+ lbs. and certain quantities of packaging materials.Not to be confused with pot marigold or Calendula officinalis. Its scent has been used as a deterrent to house flies. The oil has a minty, sweetish, fruity odor and is a well-known fungicide and antiparasitic. Kills roundworms in the gut. Also indicated for athlete's foot and ringworm. Not to be used on pregnant women and children, considered a neurotoxic and abortive. Excessive skin use is discouraged as it can cause serious photosensitivity; do not use prior to exposure to simulated or natural sunlight. This oil is extremely difficult to work with, for the penetrating aroma has the curious property of becoming stronger when combined with other essences. It may be acceptable when blended with orange, lemon or lavender. Tagetes should be used in concentrations of less than 0.5%. Do not use during pregnancy. Flash point: 113̊F.

a real find
If you have never tried tagetes oil, do yourself a favor and try this one. I have been a devoted fan of tagetes oil for many years and while the scent it is not to everybody's liking, those of us who are "into tagetes" cannot imagine working without it. There are several tagetes varieties on the market. This type from Madagascar is one of the very best, both in terms of consistency for working with it and in scent quality. Also, the price is fantastic!
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail.

HOW TO STORE: Upon receipt, EO's dispensed in plastic bottles MUST be transferred into amber glass bottles.
