Also known as absinthe wormwood and green ginger, common wormwood is a perennial herb found in Europe and North America.
While the plant is considered an invasive weed to some, it is also planted to keep pests away from other plants. In fact, the name wormwood is a reference to its long history of use as a vermifuge and natural insect control agent.
Wormwood aids in psychic powers. It can also be added to sandalwood to summon spirits. It is also sometimes used in love infusions or can be placed under the bed to draw a loved one.
