A common species in South Africa and East Africa, African Wormwood is one of the most used traditional medicines despite its bitterness.
She is incredibly aromatic with feathery grey/green leaves and small pale yellow flowers. She is a wonderful plant to use in companion planting. Aphids love this her, so she helps to keep the rest of your garden aphid free.
African wormwood is warming, cleansing and disinfecting. She is anti-bacterial and anti-viral, so is a popular plant to help ease colds, coughs and flu and boost immune system. She may also ease digestive disturbances.
For a tea, add 1/4tsp to taste of African Wormwood in 1 cup of boiled water. Steep for 10 mins. Strain. Enjoy.
