Dried Organic Wormwood
Magical: Wormwood is a powerful protective plant. Our Neolithic ancestors used Wormwood and Mugwort as their primary sacred herbs for smudging and cleansing. Wormwood clears the psychic channels and can be used for astral travel and channelling. In folk-magical practice it was used to protect the grain or growing crops against mice, vermin and insects. It is said to protect against mischievous elves and evil spirits and was used in anti-daemonic spells, particularly at the beginning of the year or at winter solstice. Wormwood was also sprinkled around the house or hung above the windows and doors to ward off evil spirits and disease.
Traditional: Wormwood is exceedingly bitter and thus stimulates the digestive system and metabolism like no other herb. It helps to regulate the balance of stomach juices and stimulates the flow of bile. Wormwood cleanses the liver and kidneys and is regarded as a tonic for the blood and circulation. However, large doses of Wormwood are toxic to the kidneys. As the name suggests, it is one of the best anthelmitics, which can ruthlessly kill and expel intestinal worms. The ancients recommended it as a preventative anti-infectious agent that could be used to ward off highly infectious diseases. Do not use during pregnancy.
