Commonly found in herbal texts and other documentation as Artemisia absinthium, or more commonly as absinthe wormwood, Wormwood is native to temperate Eurasia and Africa. In these locals it has seen a long history of use in keeping away pests and insect larvae, and has been used indoors as a repellant for fleas and moths. More famously, it has also been used in flavoring the notorious liquor called Absinthe, as well some other well known liquor such as bitters, vermouth and other, less well known wine and spirits. In the mid ages it was used to spice mead, and gets its name from this time as it was used in a common medieval cure for intestinal worms. Today many herbalists know it as an aid for treating gastric pain and indigestion. It has also seen use as an antiseptic or in the treatment of fevers, where it is said to help reduce them. Some have even used it in teas for aiding with the labor pains of pregnant women. The oil of wormwood has also been used to improve circulation, and has long been prescribed by some herbalists as a general treatment for the ailments of the circulatory system.

In Ancient times, Wormwood was considered to counteract the effects of poisoning by hemlock, toadstools and the biting of the seadragon. The plant was also used by the Mexicans who celebrated their great festival of the Goddess of Salt by a ceremonial dance of women, who wore on their heads garlands of Wormwood.

Wormwood is one of the bitterest herbs known, but it used to be much desired by brewers instead of hops. Wormwood can be toxic if taken internally in large quantities.  Use with caution.
