Dr. Nick Notes

Artemisia annua is a herb which has been used amongst Asian, Mediterreanan and Chinese cultures for many generations to aid with hostile environmental toxicity.  Sweet Wormwood Essential Oil is more gentle than traditional Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) or Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) and perhaps more easy to use medicinally.  Traditional use for Sweet Annie includes digestive support, ease for menstrual cramps.

In pharmaceutical production, Artemisia annua is harvested to extract a natural anti-malarial drug artemisinin.  Artemisia annua contains a wide array of ketones and can counter infective agents and aid in the detoxification process.  A powerful ally to have during times of infection, and useful for geographic regions with worms, parasites infections break down infection.  There are thousands of scientific articles (, search “artemisia annua”) that have found a multitude of anti-infective qualities, though the evidence is mostly described in the lab and not described in human studies.
