Spiritual uses: Absinthe, a liqueur containing wormwood oil, has been celebrated by writers and artists for its ability to increase clarity of thought, creativity, and inspiration.

The smell of wormwood oil or herbage is also credited with the ability to remove anger or help a person express it in healthier ways.

History: Wormwood’s healing properties were known to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, who used infusions of wormwood to treat rheumatism, menstrual discomfort, and pain associated with childbirth. Wormwood was also used as an antiseptic in Egyptian medicine, and as a digestive stimulant in medieval Europe. The English name wormwood may come from its traditional use as a vermifuge against intestinal parasites. However, wormwood oil’s most famous use is in the preparation of absinthe. An emerald green liqueur with a strong bitter taste, absinthe was the drink of choice for artists and writers from Vincent Van Gogh to Oscar Wilde for its ability to excite the imagination and the creative mind.
