The Jagged Path
Wormwood and Mugwort (Artemisia absinthium and Artemisia vulgaris, respectively)
The best known plant compound in Wormwood is Thujone. This compound occurs in two forms — alpha- and beta-thujone, which differ at the molecular level, with alpha being the primary active ingredient.
Thujone reportedly works to awaken your brain by blocking gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that has calming effects on the central nervous system.
Wormwood is well known for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Ancient Egyptians were known for using Wormwood to treat intestinal worms.
Chamazulene is another compound found in Wormwood, serving as an antioxidant.
Wormwood helps fight oxidative stress.
The compound Artemisinin is also found in Wormwood. Artemisinin is thought to inhibit cytokines, which are proteins secreted by your immune system that promote inflammation. Artemisinin works as an anti-inflammatory. It is especially beneficial for conditions which cause chronic inflammation.
Wormwood has the ability to relieve the symptoms of Chron's disease. Studies of the use of Wormwood against Chron's, verified fewer symptoms and a lowered need for steroids.
Mugwort is oftentimes associated with menstruation. It increases circulation to the uterus and pelvic area, help move the blood and remove stagnant blood (the source of cramps, stiffness and pain), and helps to regulate hormone levels.
Many find relief from general and extreme cramps, with the use of Mugwort tincture, including congestive cramps, with symptoms of feeling heavy, thick, pain in the lower back and general stagnancy.
Mugwort is mildly stimulating to the nervous system, reducing tension and increasing circulation and nutrition in the nerves and muscles.
