What are the benefits of Wormwood?

Historically, Wormwood (also known as Artemisia absinthiumrecords show that in Ancient Greece it was used to get rid of worms, and then during the 16th-century it was used to counteract the poisonous effects of hemlock and toadstools. It was around this time that it became one of the ingredients in the alcoholic beverage Absinthe. It was later used to treat nervous system disorders.

Today, Wormwood is used to support digestive health, liver health and reduce inflammation. It is still used as an antiparasitic. The Wellness Practitioner Wormwood Tincture can be taken daily for short periods of time.
