The earliest reference to Wormwood is in the Ebers papyrus, which was obtained in 1873. It is a powerful apotropaic herb, which means that it protects from evil.

Warning: A very strong and potentially toxic herb, Wormwood should not be used by people who are pregnant or nursing. It should be used only for short periods of time and preferably as part of a formula.

**Always consult a physician before using herbal products, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medication(s). These herbs, resins, roots, flowers, and powders are meant to be used for spell and ritual work.
