By Madhusudhan Tammisetti
Wormwood was originally found in temperate parts of Asia and Europe before spreading far over the globe. Wormwood may now be seen growing along pathways, rocky slopes, and even barren land.
Wormwood was a key component in absinthe during the time of Vincent Van Gogh. Wormwood was also used to flavor teas, spirits, and wines. However, absinthe is now outlawed in many regions due to several concerns surrounding the liqueur.
Nonetheless, wormwood's health advantages are irrefutable. Wormwood has a variety of therapeutic substances, including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant effects. It also contains flavonoids and carotenoids.
Wormwood has a long list of health benefits, including healing malaria, reducing small intestine bacteria overgrowth, being useful for nervous system disorders, stimulating appetite, treating anorexia, being an efficient insect repellent, and having antibacterial and antifungal qualities. Other advantages include relief from Crohn's disease symptoms, stimulation of menstruation, parasite elimination, and the destruction of malignant cells.
Wormwood has long been used as a stimulant to boost appetite, which is crucial after an episode of sickness. Add wormwood essential oil to a glass of water and it is recommended to take it before every meal to boost your appetite.

Hookworms, roundworms, pinworms, and tapeworms are parasitic worms that may be seen in the human body, especially in children. In the U.S., pinworms are the most common intestinal worms. Pinworm eggs are readily transmitted from one person to another. It generates a burning irritation during flushing out wastes from the body. Roundworms produce a variety of symptoms, including stomach pain, diarrhea, and blood stools. Wormwood's anti-parasitic qualities help eliminate these worms' adult and larval infestations, preventing transmission and malnutrition.
Wormwood Is Anti-Fungal
Wormwood is just as effective at killing fungus as it is at killing germs. It may successfully block the development of a variety of fungi, including Candida albicans, a terribly challenging yeast infection that may affect the intestines and mouth. Even before the advent of modern medicine, wormwood was used as a folk treatment for fungal infections.
Wormwood Is a Good Insect Repellent
Mosquitoes are a big nuisance for many people, particularly during the wet season. Mosquitoes are vectors for various deadly diseases, including dengue fever and malaria.
Although there are a plethora of insect repellents available in pharmacies and supermarkets, many of these treatments have potential adverse effects and are not suitable for children. Wormwood is a safe and efficient insect repellent that has no adverse effects. It may also help reduce flea infestations in the house.
