I did make up a rice recipe using it recently which turned out just divine, of course I never wrote it down, but it goes into rice nicely I think.

I feel this is a magickally under rated and under appreciated herb. People only seem to talk about its culinary uses.
And yet, it is a member of the magickally revered Artemisia family. That is the genus with such well respected members as Mugwort (artemesia vulgaris) and Wormwood (artemisia absinthium).
Tarragon, binomial name artemisia dracunculus. Roughly translated that means little dragon of Artemis.
One day Mugwort spirit came to me in a dream, as she often does. This day she took the form of the Virgin Mary. She instructed me to make a tincture, an ointment and a smoking mix using a blend of three artemisia herbs. Wormwood, Mugwart and Tarragon.
Tarragon, being the little dragon, is the gentle beast that the old wise woman ( Wormwood ) and the loving mother ( Mugwort ) ride upon on the way to the Sabbat. In other words, together they work well for trance work, dream work, meditation and the like. Tarragon also imparts a delicious sweet anise flavor to the tincture, and counteracts the bitterness of the wormwood. The smoke mix is made smoother and more pleasantly flavored by Tarragon's addition as well. The ointment is great for enhancing dreams and trance, and is also very effective for muscle pain relief and relaxation.
If you have extra you don't know what to do with, oil infusion with the fresh herb would be nice. A lovely fragrance for anointing candles, and of course, great for cooking.
It also dries very well.
Some are born to sweet delight,
Some are born to endless night.
