Parts: Leaves mainly but root can also be used as a powerful medicine
I planted wormwood in my garden last year not knowing very much about what it can do. I quickly learned first hand as the Lord showed me all about the powerful antibacterial properties of this herb. I have one child that seems to have been born with the mission of "testing" all my natural remedies, poor kid. He came down with a quick host of symptoms that to me seemed very similar to meningitis symptoms, I immediately acted by giving him half hour doses of wormwood. By the following morning he was back to 100%. I'm still not sure what it was but it was scary enough for me to be very grateful to have had this herb in my arsenal. I have also had success killing off harmful gut bacteria that was causing sugar addictions in the same child. After only one week of morning and evening doses I noticed a huge difference in his behavior and ability to control his diet.
Not only is wormwood a strong herbal antibiotic it is also a beautiful plant to have in the yard, sporting deep green foliage in the fall and frosty green in the spring. I wasn't surprised to learn it is a close relative to our native sage brush here in Utah. Wormwood has become one of my favorite go to's now for mystery illnesses and any type of infection.
