A very potent and bitter herb, wormwood
is a plant that merits a great deal of respect.
The most common use
for this bitter herb is to stimulate the digestive system. A very old practice would
be that of taking bitters before meals to aid digestion. A bitter taste in the mouth
triggers release of bile from the gallbladder and other secretions from intestinal glands,
which enables us to digest food.
People with weak digestion or insufficient stomach acid may benefit from taking wormwood
preparations before meals. Wormwood, however, may cause diarrhea. Its
secretion-stimulating qualities make the intestines empty quickly. Because wormwood also
contains a substance that is toxic if consumed for a long time, it is used only in small
amounts for a short time.
The herb long has been used in herbal remedies to rid the body of pinworms, roundworms,
and other parasites. This is an amazing
herb for its vermifuge, anti-bacterial, sedative, dymennorhea calming, and digestive tonic
properties. In clinical trails, it even shows promise for Crohn's disease.
Wormwood's bitter substances, called absinthin, have also been used to brew beer and
Absinthe, an old French liqueur prepared from wormwood, is now illegal because absinthol, a
volatile oil the herb contains, has been found to cause nerve depression, mental
impairment, and loss of reproductive function when used for a long time.
Wormwood also lent its flavor and its name to vermouth. The German word for wormwood is
"wermuth," which is the source of the modern word vermouth.
very good rule of thumb when considering the use of wormwood
to consult your doctor or herbalist first.
