Wormwood is the chief ingredient in absinthe liqueur. This extremely bitter herb is used to invigorate and stimulate the digestion as well as mood. If you want to avoid the extreme bitter flavor, consume by making a weak tea.  Also can be steeped and used to spray and discourage slugs, aphids and weevils.

We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
