Wormwood herb is also known as Artemisia absinthium, green ginger, absinthe, old women and southernwood. Currently, it is cultivated commercially in many parts of the world including central and northwestern United States. However, wormwood is indigenous to the temperate climate zones of Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia.
It is a perennial shrub-like plant of the aster family (Asteraceae). The roots produce firm stems which are covered with fine delicate hairs. The leaves are green with a hint of gray and the flowers are yellow that bloom during summer. The plant can grow up to three feet. The parts used are the leaves and the flowering tops, collected in July and August and then dried naturally or by artificial means.
Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy. Not to be used while nursing. Not for long-term use; do not exceed recommended dose.
