Wormwood is a great perennial to brighten gardens and flower beds with its bright yellow flowers and silver leaves. Wormwood is an extremely bitter herb that is best taken in tincture or capsule form, and used with caution.

An extremely potent antiseptic herb, Wormwood contains bitter compounds that may help remove intestinal worms and support a healthy liver, kidneys and digestive system. It is also good for stimulating the appetite.


Common Name: Wormwood

Excerpts from Herbal Antibiotics
Though the root is rarely used for medicine, it is extremely powerful, especially for hot, sore infections of the throat and lungs. Some herbalists do not recommend the use of this herb because of its thujone content. Millennia of traditional use support its continued place in the herbal dispensatory.

Wormwood is excellent to expel intestinal worms, stimulate the appetite and liver, and also the uterus. Two of its phytochemicals stimulate digestion and the extract improves liver and gallbladder function in people with liver disease. It is also an effective external antiseptic. Compresses soaked in wormwood tea are recommended for irritations, bruises, and sprains.

A word of warning

  • Avoid using it internally during pregnancy.
  • This is a very potent herb. Use caution when taking it internally.
  • Some people have sensitivities to Wormwood. If you experience any negative symptoms, stop taking immediately.

  • Debbie Osborne's Animal Deworming Recipe

    Debbie Osborne told me of a natural parasitic that she uses with both her goats and horses.


    WHAT YOU'LL NEED


    She says, “As a rule of thumb, I use 1 cup of the powdered herbs to 2 cups of the cut herbs, except for the Cloves and the D.E.” The most crucial ingredients in the recipe are marked by an asterisk (*).


    HOW TO USE IT...

    Sprinkle the mixture on their feed in the morning and evening for 7 days straight. A mature goat gets about 1 tablespoon in the morning and evening. A mature pony gets about 1/4 cup in the morning and evening. A mature horse gets about 3/4 cup in the morning and evening. Use slightly smaller amounts for offspring.

    READER FEEDBACK...
    "Just a quick message to say that I love your site and your products. I am a naturopathic vet in training and read your animal worming recipe with interest (it is very similar to one I use myself) but thought that you might add a note for horse owners. Black walnut hulls can contain a fungus which is deadly to horses, so it isn't always advisable to feed it to them, or pasture them under black walnut trees for that matter. If the infection is caught early enough it is sometimes treatable, sometimes not.
    "It should be noted that black walnut does not always contain this fungus. It just depends and there is no good way to tell if it does or doesn't. Everything else in the recipe is perfectly safe for horses. The dangers of the fungus apply ONLY to horses. The recipe in its enitirety is perfectly safe for other animals. Thanks so much for all your great work." -Anna
