Wormwood is a herb that grows to approximately two feet in height in much of the north and west of Europe as well as North America.
When Wormwood plant essence is distilled, a volatile oil is produced. It is a cocktail of thujone (absinthe or tenaceton), thujanol alcohol, cadinene, phellandrene, and pinene. Wormwood also contains quantities of tannin, resin, nitrate of potash, other salts, the bitter glucoside absinthe, and absinthic acid. Traditionally the entire herb - root, stem, leaves and flowers - is used to prepare various medicinal tonics.
Wormwood has been in use since ancient times for a variety of health problems, most notably digestive issues, for alleviating fever and expelling parasitic worms from the digestive tract.
