Wormwood Herb Powder
Botanical Name - Artemisia absinthium
Origin - Europe and North America
Other Names - absinthe wormwood, green ginger.
Common wormwood is a perennial herb found in Europe and North America.
While the plant is considered an invasive weed to some, it is also planted to keep pests away from other plants. In fact, the name wormwood is a reference to its long history of use as a vermifuge and natural insect control agent.
Typical Preparations - Soaked in wine or other spirits, as a tea, in some dream and sleep pillows, as a liquid herbal extract and sometimes found in capsules
Packaging - We package all of our herbal, fruit powders and spices in a heat sealed mylar bag which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria. The bag can be resealed with any household iron or curling iron.
Precautions - Wormwood's rather unsavory reputation and the banning of absinthe in the United States has added to the glamour and mystery surrounding it. The active constituent thujone, most often absinthol, can be toxic in high doses, and may induce hallucinogenic visions. Wormwood has a long association with both bitterness and liquor, being an ingredient in Pernod, vermouth, absinthe and other alcoholic spirits.
Specific: This herb contains thujone, which can produce convulsions in large doses. Use with caution. Not for use during pregnancy or lactation. Not for long-term use; do not exceed recommended dose. Not to exceed 1.5 g of dried herb in tea, two to three times daily. If you are taking any other herbs or supplements please consult with a qualified health-care provider before starting any new regimen. If you are pregnant or breast feeding, consult with your physician before taking.
