3 health ways to use wormwood
The plant wormwood (lat. Artemisia absithium) contains the substance-artemisinin. It has been used for a long time to treat malaria patients (in combination with other drugs). Wormwood has a powerful antiparasitic and antibacterial effect and anti-inflammatory effect. Reduces blood clotting in the body.

- Herbal liquid with wormwood – pour a small spoonful of dry wormwood with one cup of boiling but cooled water. Pre-cool the water to room temperature. Strain. Use one tablespoon three times a day for half an hour before meals. Take continuously for a maximum of two weeks.
- Wormwood against severe cough and bronhitis – pour a few 20 cm long dry tops of the plant with 3 liters of water. Leave the liquid to boil. Pour into the basin. Put your feet in the water for about 20 minutes. Bronchitis resolves after several procedures. Warming the feet helps against a strong cough. Blood vessels in the lower part of the legs dilate under the influence of high temperature. Most of the blood from the upper part is moved to the lower part. At the same time, the load on the respiratory organs is reduced, the swelling of the mucous membrane disappears, breathing is easier and the cough is alleviated. Mustard can be used instead of wormwood. The water temperature should be around 37 to 38 ° C. It is desirable to gradually add more water. It is desirable that the water covers the feet to the knees. That way the effect will be better. Use the bath for a maximum of about 25 minutes.
- Inhalation with wormwood has a healing effect on the respiratory organs and against coughing. Pour water into a large pot and place a smaller pot in that pot. Put a handful of dried wormwood with 200 ml of hot water in a small pot. Tilt your head over the steam and cover your head with a towel (which should cover the bowl).
