Wormwood

Artemisia Absinthium

Scientists have not been able to validate wormwood's longtime use as an anthelmintic (an agent that destroys intestinal worms) nor have they been able to confirm the plant's value as an emmenagogue (an agent that induces normal menstruation). Scientists state that wormwood may have a narcotic effect and that it is most likely an effective external antiseptic.

Wormwood has been declared "unsafe" by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
