Latin Name : Artemisia Annua
Sweet wormwood, also known as sweet annie, sweet sagewort, annual mugwort or annual wormwood, is a common type of wormwood native to temperate Asia but naturalized in parts of North America.
Wormwood tea can be especially helpful for digestion, specifically before heavy meals that may likely cause gas and bloated stomach. Research even suggests that wormwood helps to relieve symptoms of Crohn’s disease.
Wormwood tea dosage varies, depending on what you’re using it for. Wormwood tea preparations are typically sipped because the strong bitter taste is an important component of its therapeutic effect on stomach ailments. It can also be taken as an occasional energy tonic.
For intestinal concerns like worms or parasites, it’s best to take powdered wormwood in pill form. You can also use wormwood and other botanicals in a homemade bitters recipe. Bitters make an excellent digestive aid.
Despite the fact that is called sweet wormwood, the herb is bitter in taste.
