Wormwood, also known as wormwood or wormwood, is a medicinal plant native to Europe and Asia. It is a herbaceous perennial plant that can grow up to 1.5 meters tall. It has a gray stem with a fine down and jagged, grayish-green leaves with a characteristic bitter taste.

Wormwood is a plant rich in phenolic compounds, including absinthe, which is the compound responsible for its bitter taste. It also contains other important compounds such as thujone, mugwort and wormwood essential oil.

Wormwood has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant. It has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiparasitic and digestive properties. It is also used to treat digestive problems such as heartburn, indigestion and flatulence.

In addition to its medicinal properties, wormwood is also used to make the alcoholic drink of the same name. Absinthe is a distilled drink with a high alcohol content (between 45 and 75%). It has a strong, bitter taste and is usually served with cold water and sugar.

Absinthe was banned in many countries at the beginning of the 20th century due to the toxicity of thujone. However, the consumption of absinthe has been legalized again in many countries in recent decades.

Below is a more detailed description of the characteristics of the wormwood plant:

Root: The root is pivotal, woody, with numerous lateral branches.

Stem: The stem is erect, woody, angular and branched.

Leaves: The leaves are alternate, grayish to greenish, densely tomentose on both sides.
