As it has cholagogue property, it promotes discharge of bile from liver into the stomach and stimulates other discharges too. The parasitic worms like round worms, tape worms, hook worms etc. found in human body cannot withstand the toxicity of Wormwood Essential Oil and are killed. It can also be used to treat anorexia, insomnia, anaemia, lack of appetite, flatulence, stomach aches and jaundice and other ailments such as indigestion and loose motions arising from improper functioning of liver.
It is anti helmitic, cholagogue, deodorant, digestive, emenagogue, febrifuge, insecticide, narcotic, vermifuge and tonic.
This is an absolute powerhouse for medicinal purposes. There are several medical studies and journals out there that validate the efficacy of WWood. I break this out for serious pain relief or sedation. This has been the only oil that relieves my husband's sleep apnea snoring. If I can get this on right as my back is spasming it will significantly reduce the spasm or stop it entirely. And again, the pain relieving properties are insanely effective. It just can't be used often. Doesn't smell wonderful but not awful. Definitely worth it for the benefits. Be smart and follow safety guidelines. I will never not have this in my house. This is by far the most effective oil I've EVER used
