Artemisa (Wormwood) goes by several different names. Some of the common names for the wormwood plant include: artemisa plant, artemisa herb, and the sweet annie herb or “sweet wormwood.”
Wormwood is commonly used to in support of:
- Loss of appetite*
- Upset stomach*
- Gastrointestinal support*
- Intestinal spasms*
- Liver support*
- Support digestion, indigestion, infections and more*
How to prep Artemisa:
Combine 1/2 to one (1) teaspoon of dried artemisa herb per 6-8 ounces of water and steep for 5 to 10 minutes. As a rule of thumb take only such a small amount of artemisa herb as fits between three fingertips (max 1 gram) and start with a short steeping time (1 minute and increase up to 5-10 minutes maximum) to avoid that the tea becomes too bitter.
You can drink a freshly prepared cup of warm wormwood tea a maximum three times a day – half an hour before meals if you lack or to regulate appetite, half an hour after meals if you have digestive problems. The daily dosage is a maximum of three grams of artemisa herb.
