Other uses: Effective insect repellant, used in sprays, vaporizers and fumigants
Caution : Avoid large doses and prolonged use of Artemisia essential oil
Artemisia is also known as Damanak in the Ayurveda (traditional Indian herbal literature). The bitter components and acids render Artemisia an excellent remedy for digestive issues. This is primarily because a bitter flavor on the tongue actually causes the gallbladder to produce and release bile. Contrary to popular belief, it is often too little acid production that leads to most indigestion, not an excess of it. It is also noted as being useful in alleviating fever, expelling parasitic worms like roundworm from the digestive tract, and for its tonic effects. It may also be applied topically to reduce inflammation of insect bites and promote healing. Wormwood is also noted to be useful in treating jaundice, a sign of liver dysfunction.
