Tagete Oil (aromatherapy)

The essential Oil of Tagetes Glandulifera is a mobile, dark yellow to orange-yellow colored liquid which solidifies upon exposure to air, daylight and moisture. It can be kept in diethyl phthalate solution when it is well protected against ultra-violet light and moisture, and preferably under antioxidant protection. The main constituent, Tagetone, an unstable ketone, is presumably responsible for the peculiar odor and for the resinification and unstability of the oil.
