Many of the artemisia varieties have insecticidal properties with wormwood being the most potent. Roman wormwood is less toxic and is used to flavor the drinks Vermouth and Campari. A sachet made of wormwood leaves will keep moths at bay. Did you know that the delectable herb tarragon is of the artemisia genus?
Wormwood, Artemisia Absinthium has been used for centuries as a moth repellant, general pesticide and as a tea/spray to repel slugs and snails. Before its' toxicity was known it was used as the name implies: a worming medicine for people and animals. . Historic references to wormwood go back as far as 1600 B.C. in Egypt. Wormwood leaves contain absinthin a substance which can be toxic to other plants. You may have heard of the alcoholic drink "absinthe" a green colored beverage that is now illegal in most countries. And rightfully so as it has been said that the painter Vincent van Gogh was imbibing of absinthe when he lopped off his ear to send to a woman. The absinthin being water soluble will wash off the leaves and leach into the soil interfering and stunting the growth of plants in close proximity to the wormwood. Because of this do not use wormwood tea as a spray on small plants or seedlings, only on more established plants. We offer only our own experience in using wormwood tea as an insect spray and suggest that you use it with caution until you see how it works for you. For best results spray directly on the target insects or use dried wormwood cuttings spread on the soil in the garden. Wormwoods are toxic so must not be ingested.
To Make Wormwood Tea:
Effective againstAphids, caterpillars, flea beetles and moths. Putting dried sprigs of wormwood in the garden along side carrots and onions will mask their scent, confusing insects in particular the carrot rust fly. The dried wormwood will not have the growth inhibiting effects of the fresh herb.
Plant CultureHardy to zone 4 and some to zone 3. Capable of growing in poor soil with full sun to part shade. Pruning is done in fall with the exception of southernwood which is cut back in spring or summer. They require full sun and dry well drained soil. Some species will go dormant in the summer heat and sprout again when cooler temperatures return. This is most prevalent with the silver mound varieties. Don't plant wormwoods near anise, beans, caraway, fennel, peas and sage.
HarvestingTo harvest for future use in insect teas, dried arrangements or sachets you will pick the upper portions of the stalks when they are in full flower and there is no moisture on the plant. Generally flowering occurs after July. Besure to pick any damaged leaves off your stalks. Tie the stem ends togetherin bundles. Hang them upside down in a shady spot. Let them air dry like this for a few days. We then put them into glass containers with tightly screwed down lids. Store in a dark place.
Longer-term use (over four weeks) or intake of amounts higher than those recommended can cause nausea, vomiting, insomnia, restlessness, vertigo, tremors, and seizures. Thujone-containing oil or alcoholic beverages (absinthe) made with the oil is strictly inadvisable—the oil is addictive and may cause brain damage, seizures, and even death. Short-term use (two to four weeks) of a wormwood tea or tincture has not resulted in any reports of significant side effects. One study found there were no side effects when using less than 1 ml tincture three times per day for as long as nine months to promote digestive function. Nevertheless, consult with a healthcare professional knowledgeable in herbal medicine before taking wormwood. Wormwood is not recommended during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
