Latin name Artemisia absinthium, this is the hypnotic and narcotic herb that is now used with great caution by herbalists. A flower essence made by infusing the intensely fragrant flowers in water and sun is a nonaddictive herbal remedy (although not for use during pregnancy) yet among flower essences, I would consider it very powerful and only for those who take it under the guidance of a practitioner.
My insights into artemisia
Very helpful for those who tend to overload their life with sugar and sweets, in the form of distractions and food and drink addictions; for those who would benefit from a touch of bitterness to awaken them to the more serious, more real aspects of life. This very powerful essence can be used infrequently, as a single dose, as a means to have a creative insight or vision. In addition, I see it as a medicine for resolving addictions to narcotic substances.
