Wormwood – Artemesia

Share This Page

WormwoodWormwood (aka Artemesia) has been used for hundreds of years as an herb in remedies for worms.  It is antiseptic and useful for the whole digestive tract for all problems such as indigestion, gas, heartburn or lack of appetite.  It is an attractive garden plant with silvery gray foliage and the dried foliage is frequently used in wreaths and flower arrangements.  One variety of wormwood (artemesia absinthium) was used to make an alcoholic beverage that was considered evil because of the high alcohol content and the concentration of a hallucinogen in the plant.  It was thought to drive people mad and at one time was banned.  It was made famous by such painters as Degas, Manet, Picasso and more, all who did a painting titled “The Absinthe Drinker.”  These painters showed the here and now of what life was like.  You can still get a wormwood parasite combo.
