Sweet wormwood

Sweet wormwood (Artemisia annua L.) is a plant that can grow up to 200 cm as a single tree or shrub. It has a small and strong root, and opposite, complex and pointed leaves that resemble a fern.

The flowers are hanging, yellow, collected in numerous heads. The leaves are cut and harvested when they start to bloom, because that’s when they are the richest in artemisinin, and they bloom from July to September. It thrives best when exposed to the sun, although it can thrive in other conditions.

In traditional medicine, it has been used for more than 2000 years to strengthen immunity and relieve pain and inflammation. The main active ingredient is artemisinin, which has strong anti-cancer, antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial effects. It has been used as an anti-malarial drug for decades, but only as an adjuvant, as it has the ability to inactivate the parasites that cause malaria, which can then be weakened by conventional drugs.
