Wormwood Leaf, tincture - 4oz (118.3ml)
Common names: Wormwood, Sweet Annie, Green Ginger, Annual Wormwood, Sweet Sagewort, Sweet WormwoodPlant Description: Wormwood, native to the Mediterranean and central Europe, is now also found in Siberia, Canada, and parts of the northeastern United States. It is generally found growing wild on roadsides and wastelands. Wormwood has a perennial root, and grows from mid-summer to mid-autum. It reaches a height of approximately 4 feet. From the root, branched, leafy stems arise covered with fine, silky, grayish-white hairs. Its leaves are dark green, covered also in silky grayish hairs which gives them a downy feel, and about 3 inches long and 1-1/2 inches broad. From July to October, Wormwood blooms with small, greenish-yellow, nearly globular flowers arranged in a leafy panicle. Wormwood shrubs are very coarse, sprawling, and aromatic. Its leaves and flowers are bitter, and the leaves and roots exude a substance that restricts many other plants from growing nearby.
Dosage: 15-60 drops in water or juice, 2-3 times daily or as needed. Shake well before using.
