For a long time, wormwood was the raw material for absinthe, a liqueur that was very common in the 19th century. Due to its bitter substances , wormwood oil leads to a strong, reflex increase in the production of digestive juices. It is used as Amarum "Aromaticum" (appetite-stimulating bitter agent with essential oil) for indigestion, liver and bile disorders and loss of appetite. The essential wormwood oil strengthens life energy, stimulates the spirit of life and frees the soul from old burdens.

The raw materials used come almost exclusively from biodynamic or from fair trade, biological wild collection (FairWild). However, since not all plants are available in organic quality, the best, tested and carefully selected conventional quality (sélection) is used in this case. Essential oils are highly concentrated and should therefore neither be used for small children nor during pregnancy.
Therefore, they should also: always be dosed sparingly, protected from light, be kept cool and out of the reach of children not come into contact with the eyes, mucous membranes or open flames direct contact with the skin, always in a highly diluted form (e.g. in a lotion, cream or oil).
Warning: In case of irritation or chemical burns, first dissolve the essential oil with a neutral vegetable oil, then remove it with a cloth and then wash it off thoroughly with clear water. In case of eye contact, rinse immediately with plenty of running water. If severe reactions, such as dizziness or nausea, occur, consult a doctor immediately or contact the poison control center.
