Wormwood is a perennial shrub growing up to three feet tall, a native of temperate regions of Europe and North Africa. The leaves are used medicinally. Its active constituents include sesquiterpene lactones, volatile oil, phenolic acids and tannins.

The high bitter component of wormwood stimulates the secretion of digestive enzymes thereby improving the appetite and increasing the efficiency of food digestion and absorption. It can also help to alleviate nausea, travel sickness and flatulence, reduce bloating, and is an effective tonic for the digestive system after illness. The sesquiterpene component of the herb is strongly insecticidal and may be used as an insect repellent. As its name suggests, Wormwood is an effective treatment for intestinal worms and other micro-organisms.

Wormwood contains a high thujone component so should not be taken for longer than four weeks at a time. You should avoid it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you suffer from gastric or duodenal ulcer. Excessive doses may cause vomiting and diarrhoea. It is unsuitable for children.
