Man Found Standing Writes:
Wormwood, Organic: India (Artemisia annua)
Wormwood is also known as Artemesia, Sweet Annie, or Sweet Wormwood. It was first cultivated in China but the plant now has been naturalized throughout the world. Artemesia has a highly camphor-like fragrance and is used as a flavoring in the food and drink industry. In the United States, the plant is mostly sold on a very limited scale as a dried herb for the floral or craft trade.
With all the wonderful properties Artemesia contains, this essential oil has not gained the notoriety it deserves in the Alternative Health Industry: maybe due to a higher cost of this essential oil. Traditionally, Artemesia herb has been used as a medicine with written referenced dating back over two thousand years. Both the herb and the essential oil are considered quite safe under normal to more extreme usage.
