Mexican Mint Marigold is a perennial plant species native to Mexico and Central America. This strain of Marigold was a popular entheogen among the Aztecs, as well as a ritualistic incense referred to as "Yauhtli." It's often been infused with Nicotiana rustica ( Tobacco ) in a smoking blend that was utilized in combination with peyote and other psychedelic plants. This indicates to me that it's one of many "potentiator" type plants". Tagetes lucida is the scientific name for the plant species. It has a long history of use as a medicinal and culinary herb as well.


      Although much of the modern world refuses to investigate sacred plants like Tagetes lucida, its ancient origins of use as a successful medicine, entheogen, and culinary herb teach us otherwise. Aside from this, there is in fact a scientific understanding on chemicals found within this plant and many others. It contains the following compounds: Anethole, Ohavicol, Coumarin ( also found in Tumeric), Estragole, Isorhamnefin, Methyleugenol, and Quercitin. These compounds are of great interest to researchers in the field of phytochemistry, which consist of their study and naming. Phytochemistry is a very important field when it comes to research and production of modern pharmaceutical medicine.


       I mentioned earlier the sacred Aztec incense known as "Yauhtli." I'd like to briefly discuss the history of natural aromatics. Incense have a long history of use among cultures around the world. They're not like the "stick incense" people buy today. Honestly, those are fake imitations that seem to cause more nasal irritation than anything else. Natural aromatics are raw plant materials that are burned. Ancient beliefs regard these aromatic plants to have a range of benefits. Many of them are used in combination with meditation, and aromatherapy for lifting mood, inducing motivation, etc. You can see why they would be used in conjunction with Peyote, as the scent may very well open up certain un-tapped potential within the human psyche.

Non Medicinal Uses:


       Both the fresh and dried leaves of the M.M.M. [ mmm lol ] are used as a tarragon substitute when flavoring culinary dishes. They are also said to have a similar flavor to that of anise tea. The flowers are also used to produce a yellow dye. They make an excellent natural insect repellent which is great for use in gardens everywhere. You can collect the flowers, dry them out and then add them to a spray bottle with 75% water and 25% liquor. The spray is completely harmless to the plants and easily washes off in the rain. You'll find it's a very effective and easy to make DIY mixture.


       The Mexican Mint Marigold was also used by the Huichol for its psychotropic and entheogenic effects. The Huichol would combine the plant with Tobacco. One study suggest that an methanolic extract captured from the flowers of Tagetes lucida seems to inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and Candida albicans in cultures. These are rather remarkable discoveries that I believe should not be ignored. Making and using a home-made spray that contains the dried flowers of the Mexican Mint Marigold should prove a very effective house hold cleaner.
