sweet wormwood extract, and Annual Wormwood are all common names for this summer annual herb native to Asia. Sweet Annie is now naturalized in many countries including the United States and is under cultivation for various commercial uses in many countries. She has a fern like leaf and is aromatically fragrant with sweet camphor notes especially strong on a warm summer day in the meadow. Cultivation and commercialization of this plant are largely due to the presence of an active chemical found in the plant called artemesinin. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the plant is referred to as Qing Hao and has been used for over 2,000 years to help with occasional digestive complaints. The whole herb in extracted or tea form is consumed in many countries for “digestive health”.

1.May alleviate pain
wormwood leaf extract has long been sought for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. For example, this herb may help relieve osteoarthritis, a painful condition resulting from joint inflammation. In a 4-week study in 90 adults with knee osteoarthritis, applying a 3% wormwood skin ointment 3 times daily helped improve both pain levels and physical function. All the same, it didn’t reduce stiffness.
It should be noted that the plant itself should never be directly applied to the skin, as its compounds are too concentrated and can result in painful burns.Currently, there’s not enough research to determine whether teas or extracts of wormwood also reduce pain.
2.May fight parasitic infections
Sweet wormwood extract has been used to treat intestinal worms as far back as Ancient Egypt. This parasite-fighting property is attributed to thujone.Yet, the evidence for this specific application is largely anecdotal. Notably, animal and test-tube studies indicate that the herb may fight tapeworms and other parasites — though this research may not apply to humans.Thus, more comprehensive studies are necessary.
3.Boasts antioxidant properties
Besides thujone, another notable wormwood leaf extract compound is chamazulene. It acts as an antioxidant and is most concentrated in the essential oils of the plant’s pre-flowering stage. Antioxidants like chamazulene may combat oxidative stress in your body, which is associated with cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and other ailments. Nonetheless, more research on this compound’s properties is needed.
4.May fight inflammation
Artemisinin, another plant compound found in wormwood, may help fight inflammation in your body. Prolonged inflammation is associated with several chronic diseases. Artemisinin is thought to inhibit cytokines, which are proteins secreted by your immune system that promote inflammation (18Trusted Source).
Studies suggest that sweet wormwood extract may help relieve Crohn’s disease, which is characterized by inflammation of the lining of the digestive tract. Its symptoms may include diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal cramps, and other digestive issues. In one study in 40 adults with this condition, those taking a 500-mg wormwood supplement 3 times daily had fewer symptoms and a reduced need for steroids after 8 weeks, compared with those in a placebo group. Keep in mind that further research is needed.
Wormwood leaf extract has been associated with many benefits, such as alleviating pain and inflammation and fighting oxidative stress and parasitic infections. However, more scientific research is necessary.
