water. It has a woody stem that reaches to about 1 meter (3 feet) tall.
The leaves are silver-green and covered with fine silky hairs, and has
pale yellow flowers. The name is derived from the Arabic word tharkhoum
and the Latin word dracunculus, meaning 'little dragon' probably because
of the way the root coils up to look like a dragon. Cautions: Dilute
before use as it can be moderately toxic due to the methyl chavicol in
the oil; May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is
recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
