Wormwood General Information
Wormwood is a shrubby perennial herb with grayish-white stems that are covered with fine silky hairs, and grow from 1-3 feet tall. The leaves are silky, hairy and glandular with small resinous particles. The plant is aromatic with a spicy, somewhat bitter taste. In ancient folklore, Wormwood was said to counteract the effects of poisoning by hemlock, toadstools, and sea dragon bites. The Wormwood plant was important among the Mexicans, who celebrated their great festival of the Goddess of Salt with women who were adorned with Wormwood garland, and performed a ceremonial dance. Wormwood is one of the most bitter herbs known, but is very wholesome. Throughout history Wormwood has been used to stimulate uterine contractions during childbirth. Another species, Sweet Wormwood (A. annua), is often grown as an ornamental, but actually contains an essential oil that has strong anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, diuretic and antibacterial properties.

Wormwood Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Today Wormwood is used as a mild sedative, but is also used to eliminate worms, increase stomach acidity, and lower a fever. It can help you regain appetite and it enhances digestion by increasing the secretion of digestive enzymes and bile from the liver and gallbladder. This herb also works well for eliminating toxins and congestion in the gut. Wormwood has also been used to treat liver, gallbladder, gastric, and vascular disorders, and migraine. It is used for treating infections, fever, colds and flu. Wormwood can also be used to bring on delayed or suppressed menstruation due to stagnation in the uterus, and for painful periods. This herb can be used topically for wounds, skin ulcers, blemishes, and insect bites. It is often used with black walnut for the removal of parasites.

Wormwood Safety & Interaction Information
Wormwood contains thujone, a narcotic poison that can damage the nervous system and cause mental deterioration. The levels vary considerably among the different species, however, and usually very high doses over a period of years are required before any effects are noted. Do not use while pregnant or nursing. Those with bleeding problems should also avoid the herb as large doses can be toxic. Wormwood can also be habit forming if using over an extended period of time. Safety in young children or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
