Maximum quantity available reached.

 

An aromatic and bitter herb, wormwood was once sought after as an ingredient for brewing beer before hops eventually replaced it. Artemisia absinthium is a member of the Asteraceae family and can be found growing wild along roadsides and disturbed places throughout Europe, Siberia, and the United States.

Historically, wormwood herb was soaked in various liquors and is a notable ingredient in absinthe and vermouth.  The plant can be infused in herbal tea blends, used in tincturing, and incorporated into other botanical formulations.

 Also known as:  wormwood, absinthium, green ginger, absinthe, old woman, southernwood, grand wormwood, absinthe wormwood, common wormwood

The common name, wormwood, is suggested to have come from its historical use in expelling intestinal worms. Although, another reported root may originate from the Anglo-Saxon word “wermode” or “wermuth”, meaning “mind preserver”.

 How to make wormwood tea.

Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of dried wormwood to boiling water. Let it steep for 8 to 10 minutes.  Strain and serve immediately.  The flavor will be more bitter the longer it steeps.  Sweeten to taste with honey and add a bit of lemon if preferred. 

Suggested use: Drink 1 or 2 cups daily.

How to make wormwood tincture.

  • Combine 8 ounces of vodka with 1 cup of wormwood in a sealable jar
  • Seal and store in a cool, dry place for 4 to 6 weeks
  • Strain and store in a tincture bottle

Health benefits:

Although the herb can be commonly used to flavor beverages and liquors in small amounts, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration classifies this herb as unsafe due to the presence of thujone. Today, wormwood, in small amounts, is largely reserved for use in making herbal bitters, teas or tinctures. Some believe wormwood can help stimulate digestion and relieve spasms in the intestinal tract.  It can also help with skin disorders and regulate the metabolism.

Culinary use of this herb is discouraged.

Other uses:

Wormwood can be used as a natural pest repellent in the home and garden, and it is used in closet and drawer sachets, as a bitter aromatic, and as an ingredient in liniments.
