How and when to use wormwood oil

Wormwood or Artemisia Absinthium is a perennial herb which may grow up to five feet in height. It is used to make highly addictive liquor called Absinthe which was quite popular in Europe, North Africa and Russia for its hallucinogenic properties. The name of this herb is believed to be the result of its use as herbal remedy for expelling parasitic worms from human intestines. It is closely related to another botanical Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris).

Although large quantities of this herb in any form is harmful, smaller quantities may enable humans to achieve spiritual aims such as astral projection, enabling or boosting psychic powers, calling spirits, etc. Carrying wormwood also protects one from hexes or other negative influences. If this herb is smoldered as incense, it has the ability to summon spirits.

This herb has been mentioned in Biblical documents and was used in healing, exorcisms and to get rid of the evil eye. Wormwood is safe when used in its raw form and in small quantities. However, in the form of essential oil, wormwood is extremely harmful if abused.

Historically the essential oil is connected to the planet Mars and is allegedly used for protection from creatures such as snakes, wasps or scorpions. In addition to the connection with planet Mars, it is also associated with Venus and the element Fire. As a very ancient herb, Wormwood has its share of history. The essential oil was used only as a perfume to keep away unwanted love magick, Rusalki or water spirits which wander the woods in spring, sea serpents and its association with wars.

It is important that people realize that the wormwood essential oil should never be ingested! Although the scent of this essential oil is very herb-like, it may be used in very minute quantities combined with other essential oils such as cedarwood, chamomile, anise, angelica root, black pepper, bergamot, clary sage, geranium, juniper, lemongrass, lavender, mandarin, rosemary, etc.
