                       This African variety of Wormwood is used medicinally in its native habitat for ailments such as coughs, colds, influenza, but also headache, earache, malaria and intestinal worms. Fresh and dry leaves and even young stems are made into and used as infusions and tinctures(liquid extracts). The African strain is considered to be narcotic, analgesic and antihistamine. Native Americans used related strains as an anti-toxin.


    It has been used by some of the worlds most creative minds. It also has a historic reputation as an oneirogen ( dream inducing plant ). Deep states of REM sleep are said to enhance creativity in a person. Do I see a connection? In my experiences, any Thujone containing plant is an oneirogen. This strain is also related to Mugwort, which is no surprise because of their like properties. Mystics, ancient Alchemist, and other Shamanic cultures from around the world have always had a fascination, and need for Wormwood.


    Aside from its use by mystical cultures, it's also very useful as a natural way to protect your garden. The use of this herb has often been applied for ridding the huamn body of parasitic worms. So I've hypothesized that it could do the same for plants. I've personally tested this hypothesis for use in the garden and it's very effective in keeping worms from eating your plants alive. See the full article on how to make a homemade pesticide to protect your garden here.


                      This herb has been used since biblical times by many cultures across the world. The Egyptians used it as a remedy for expelling intestinal worms. In first-century Greek and Roman writings it's mentioned often for its medicinal applications with soldiers in battle. Back then, observation was all the proof people needed. Today, we do understand that these plants do produce pharmacological phytochemicals.


    The popular drink known as "Absinthe" is derived from the scientific name of the plant ( Artemesia absinthium ) and was first created by Henri Pernod in 1797. The original Absinthe drink contained wormwood, fennel, anise and often other herbs. The popularity of the brew grew throughout Europe and the United States in the nineteenth century. Later on Absinthe was banned in several countries towards the early twentieth century. Shakespeare often mentioned Wormwood in his writings as well. He referred to it as eisell or eysell.


    In the bible: Proverbs 5:1 - 5:6 ; Lamentations 3:13 - 3:19; Amos 5:6; Revelation 8:10 -12


    Precautions



    This alternative healing tool contains Thujone, an organic constituent that exist in many plants in nature. This constituent is safe in small dosages, however; large dosages of thujone over time are said to have negative health effects. Pregnant women should avoid consumption of this herb. Note: It's challenging to consume toxic amounts of this constituent.

    Constituents


                       Artemesia afra ( scientific name ) contains a lot of the same alkaloids found in many other herbs and ethnobotanicals. Thujone is an alkaloid found in this herb that also exist in Yarrow, Passion Flower, Sassafras root bark and many others. It is very common in nature for identical psychoactive compounds to be found in many different sources.


    When we look at Wormwood from a shamanic perspective, we understand that there is more to the plant than the phytochemicals that have been researched by phytochemist. It is a major favorite of many ancient alchemist, mystics, and shamanic cultures. Shamans believe that the plant will commune to you through your dreams, visions, and journeys. They hold the belief that plants like Wormwood will teach you how to use them, and what their hidden properties are. Get to know your medicine.
