Artemisia absinthium is native to temperate climates in Europe, Asia, and northern Africa, and is now naturalized worldwide. It is one of 180 species in the genus Artemisia and a member of the extensive Asteraceae family. Wormwood is an herbaceous perennial with tall, branched stems accented by deeply segmented silver-green leaves that grows in gardens and amongst disturbed places and arid, uncultivated soils in the wild.  

Artemisia is derived from Artemis, the Greek goddess of wild creatures and the hunt. Greek legend holds that the plant was delivered to Chiron, the father of medicine, by the goddess herself. The common name, wormwood, is said to have derived from its historical use in expelling intestinal worms. Alternatively, the name may have originated from the Anglo-Saxon word “wermode” or “wermuth”, meaning “mind preserver”. Wormwood was employed in traditional European herbalism to support the digestive system. It was utilized in ancient Greece for intestinal parasites and as a general wellness tonic. The plant is commonly infused into herbal tea blends, crafted into tinctures, or integrated into other botanical formulations.

Made in small batches at our extract facility in Eugene, Oregon using organic alcohol, our organic wormwood extract is created with care and quality. This extract is very bitter and can be taken in water or juice. It may be paired with other bitter extracts like burdock or added to an extract blend such as tummy care. This tincture can also make a healthful addition to teas including peace tea and turmeric ginger tea.
