Today I present to you another medicinal plant that is in my garden.
Wormwood is known for its bitter taste, but also for the many beneficial health effects it brings. The healing effects of wormwood have been known since ancient times. Although it can help with many problems, it should be noted that it contains a substance called thujone, which can be toxic in large quantities. Thus, after about a week of regular consumption of wormwood preparations – usually teas – a short break is required.
Wormwood is extremely helpful in various digestive problems.
Wormwood has been proven to relieve cramps and stimulate blood circulation, which helps to improve blood circulation to the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. The result is both better digestion and better metabolism. It is used to stimulate appetite, against bloating, against intestinal parasites to strengthen the intestinal mucosa.
Do you know this plant?

This is what they use against malaria with artesimin, but there is a new strain of malaria which wormwood cannot stop. They are still testing if wormwood can eliminate Covid-19
Woow, very interesting information. I didn’t know that. I hope the results are good.
They have started trials, but no results have been given as of yet – https://www.dw.com/en/germany-scientists-test-artemisia-plant-against-coronavirus/a-53944514

i have a friend that swears by wormwood tea, he makes it by literally boiling the wood for a long time.
it tastes very bitter to me.
You are right. The tea is very bitter but very healing.
yes it heals me of the desire to make wormwood tea!
Medicines are usually not very tasty.
that is very true – but wormwood tea is yucky
I kinda have seen I but I don’t if I can able to identify it when I see it. So, one has to be careful when using it.
You are right. We must be careful with the use. I drink tea occasionally.
